Perfect location and reasonable cost, this lovely old private hotel exudes history with its fittings, decor etc. Unfortunately, buildings of this age require considerable maintenance and I suspect that such minor repairs are beginning to become a bit too much for the current owners. This said, one can't expect a historic building to compare with modern 5 star accommodation and so it is not unreasonable to turn a blind eye to small and inconsequential deficiencies ..... just as long these don't compound too much in years to come.
Very comfortable, very tastefully furnished, somewhat noisy from other patrons socialising on the large veranda's, limited on-street parking but all in all wonderful accommodation and a great experience. When we visit Rotorua again, would we stay there .... Definately YES.
