The hotel stays close to the Holiday Brand. It delivered what is expected from a mid range hotel that caters for both the tourist and business trade. The room was a good size but the bathroom was on the small size but adequate.
In general the décor was looking slightly tired and could do with a re-vamp. Nevertheless it is clean, the staff are efficient and it is still worthwhile considering as a place to stay in Rotorua.
The location is at the southern end of Rotorua close to the thermal parks. Indeed two parks are within walking distance. Conversely this puts it at the opposite end of town from the central area of restaurants etc. There is a courtesy coach available but we did not use it as we had our own transport and I am not sure whether there is a charge for using it.
The real disappointment was the breakfast, where I felt there could have been more variation. There were no mushrooms or tomatoes available on view and on the first morning spaghetti in tomato sauce was offered in place of baked beans.
