I stayed here for one night on a business trip to Rotorua. Due to this being a historical hotel from 1897 and a five star hotel, I expected something out of the ordinary.
However I was bitterly disappointed. Although this is a period hotel, and the owners try to keep it that way, some areas are dated. Due to my room being the last one available, it felt like it was a room enclosed by two more elegant. The walls were thin and I was able to hear the people in the other room whenever they walked
The cost was rather on the high side considering there were a lot of hotel rooms vacant in Rotorua.
