Conveniently located, well appointed hotel. Great for business or leisure travel. SOme rooms have views to the lake. Nice bar and restaurant, several family groups in too over the school holidays, and kids appeared to be well looked after in the restaurant bar and pool areas. See you again soon.

We had a wonderful stay in Rotorua's Novatel. The staff were friendly and the Hotel met all our requirments. The room was clean and spacious. The bathroom was also clean and plenty of towels etc.
The only negative would be the spa area. The water in spa pool could have done with refreshing and perhaps the changing area revamped. It did look dated and worn.

Over all my stay was excellent. The staff were great, I had my 5yr grandson and they were all happy to talk to him and answer all his silly questions.
But the cleanliness of the bathroom in room 317 was very disappointing, I had a bath and there was yucky stuff on the bottom of the soap dish and around the taps.
