We stayed here for 2 nights while staying at Rotorua. We had a superior room which was a little on the small side, but was very clean. The hotel itself had character and good atmosphere; the décor was simple yet elegant. It was located within walking distance to restaurants, close to the lake.

Sleep quality at this hotel was excellent, and amenities such as the pool was very warm and they even had their own thermal pool and spa. Hotel staff were polite which made the stay an excellent one. Recommended!

Room Tip: Rooms over the carpark are unexciting. We believe there are better views over the lake if views are important.

Dear MimBonWill

Thank you for taking the time to review your recent stay with us, I am glad to read that your stay was an enjoyable one. Eat street has been recently completed and is a great addition to the city. the beds certainly are among the most comfortable I have slept on and a great selling point for the hotel.

Novotel Rotorua, New zealand.. One of the biggest hotel property in the city. The ambiance and the overall look of the hotel was good but the room was a bit cramped up though it was a superior room. Hotel was overall clean and neat, beautifully located near the lake. The breakfast was good with a number of things for the vegetarian person as well. Overall the stay was good but felt lack of space in the room. Room just sufficient for a couple, not for a family. Good business hotel I must say.
