We stayed at the Kingsgate Hotel Rotorua, after being quoted only $120 for 3 people. The room was in the back building, which looked SO dated, compared to the front building.
We had to park in the car in front of the hotel but the carpark was empty and looked shady/unsafe.
We had 2 double beds and the room looked mediocre, considering it's supposed to be a 3+ star hotel. The bathroom was the only nice thing.
We had dinner at the attached restaurant, which was good value for money.
At 10pm, a COCKROACH crawls out of my towel, we killed it. We called reception and after 15 minutes, the guy comes to remove it asking "is there only one???". Pathetic.
At 11pm, fire alarm wakes us up and we have to go out of the hotel under torrential rain.
In the morning, we requested a discount so we ended up paying only $100.
Avoid at all costs.
