if you want a taste of elegance then the Princess Gate is the place to stay, a charming 1930s restored hotel keeping the theme of by gone era. The hotel lobby was a pleasure to walk into and we were greeted with a great smile from Steven who we found very helpful. Our room had a king bed with (comfy as) and the decor was also kept in the theme of the era. The room was spotless and it was good to see a note advising customers who have stayed in Rotorua about trout flies. And the food, just mouth watering. We had the early bird special and the chef cooked the chicken to perfection and nicely accompanied by beans and small parsnips, followed by a great desert. the buffet breakfast was a great selection of cereals and fruit ect, followed by perfectly cooked bacon and eggs served by the hotels owner, great to see. Unfortunately we could only spend one night at the Princess Gate but we will be going back in a few months for 3 days and this were we will be staying.
