The Novotels location is second to none , located by the lake and next to a pedestrian street of restaurants we found walking around Rotorua easy.
We stayed in room 118 with no views to speak of but had two queen beds in a modern and clean room.
The swimming pool was small but functional and the gym was useful if you wanted to do cardio but the weights and equipment were average.
Clarkes bar was good with a pool table that kept my 2 teenagers occupied . Prices were not too high and they had a good range of hot bar snacks.
We had breakfast at 9.40 and found it average to be blunt. The bacon was cold and the selection of hot food was not what you would expect at a 4 star hotel.
They did have lots of fresh fruit and also has Miso soup and rice to cater for asian people
We paid $89.40 for the room which was a September special and found it to be excellant value at that price.
The hotel attracts lots of groups but it was run professionally and i would reccomend it to all types of travellers
