A friend and I stayed at Rydge's Rotorua over Queen's Birthday weekend after getting a voucher from a deal site.
We found the room to be huge however very run down and lacked the little things that most hotels provide. We stayed two nights and on the 2nd day our towels were taken from us early in the morning and our room was not serviced until 3.30pm that day. We rang and asked for towels (the weather was yuck and we wanted to have a swim in the indoor pool) however we were told no towels available - thus couldn't go swimming. No DVDs were available to hire or borrow which most places have nowadays don't they? Also no newspapers were available which was a bit of a disappointment.
We dined at the Atrium Restaurant and if we didn't have a complementary voucher definitely wouldn't dine there. I ordered the Butter Chicken which was over cooked and very expensive for what it was.
The hotel was very noisy especially with kids running around in the floors above us.
Overall the staff were friendly and the beds were good but I wouldn't be rushing back to stay at this hotel anytime soon!
