Thank you Brett and Vlasta for a super two days at Princes Gate at the time Kiri was singing in Rotorua. What a brilliant idea to package two nights with the concert - though, in truth, while Kiri was lovely, she didn't better the cabaret programme offered the previous night.
I lived in Rotorua in the 50's as a young child and always gazed at Princes Gate in awe every time I went to the library opposite and wondered what it would be like to look inside.Very romantic and reminded me of photographs my grandfather took in Rotorua on a trip in 1912.
Finally, 50 years later stayed there. Will be back. The Marvellys have all sorts of creative ideas for entertainment packages, dinner and accommodation. Highly recommended, but be prepared for unmodern creaky stairs, and dark spaces, over-warm rooms (because of the thermal heat everywhere in Rotorua) and all the little issues that can go with historic wooden buildings - it's a walk back in time to the days when our grandparents travelled very slowly and adventurously to Rotorua in, by our standards, uncomfortable cars and over metalled roads. How they did it is mavell(ous). Don't expect chrome modern and expect to revel in times past. It's an experience.
