My Husband and I and our 10 Year Old Son have just returned from a 2 night Stay at the Rotorua Kingsgate Hotel .
The Hotel had a good feel to it, it was clean and the rooms have been renovated, but the outside of the Hotel is run down . It needs a paint and we had to be asked to be moved from our first room as it sounded like the roof was coming off, as it was rattling really loudly with the wind . We were given another room which would have been built in the 1950s, although renovated had some of the old outdated things in it, from the era it was built in, such as an old and disconnected "Do not disturb light swtich" which was used back in the day, before cardboard do not disturbed signs were put on doors ! Our room had a balcony and the view from the balcony outside was "a garden area " which had 1950s raised pebble garden boxes which did`nt have many plants in and outside the rooms had old pot plant pots which were from that era, which had no plants in, but instead smoke butts ! We had to ask for our TV to be replaced twice as the channels would randomly, not work, we had one TV channel at one stage ! The heated swimming pool was really nice to use, and it was warm, we went for swims in the mornings before Breakfast, it was so nice . The bar area and the restaurant were nice , and the pool are was lovely too . The food at the restaurant for the buffett dinner - was the nicest food I have ever had in a buffett, I really do Recommend eating at the restaurant . The Breakfast was nice as well, they had fried potatoes, pancakes, scrambled eggs, Baked beans, sausages, toast, tomatoes, 4 cereals , different fresh fruits, yoghurt, jugs of OJ & water which you can take to your table and tea and coffee . The staff were generaly well mannered, and pleasant . They have a laundry which has 2 washing machines and 2 driers for guests to use . There are rooms which are more modern than the rooms we were given, as my in-laws stayed in one of the modern rooms, and they paid the same rate as us per night . If you are going to stay here, I would ask for one of the more modern rooms as they had Air Conditioning in them and were way nicer . The Hotel has a gym which has about 5 different items of gym equipment in it to use . The Hotel provides Shampoo/Conditioner, Body lotion and Soap . We will stay again, but next time I will definatly ask for one of the more modern rooms .
