so if you really don't like the smell of sulfur there are probably other hotels further into town that are not as close to the action. There is a spot in the foyer that is really on the nose, but it really is just part of the experience. Easy checkin, friendly staff. We had breakfast included, which was good, but not outstanding. We also took the dinner and internet package. Dinner was nice, but definitely 'buffet' style food, so again not outstanding. Internet package was fine as it was 12h, but only 150mb so ran out before the hours ran out - the good thing was that it was a cumulative 12h. be warned though, that if you need more time (we bought another 12h and a lot more download), that it is a sequential time, which we started at 9:30 at night only to find there was nothing left in the morning!!! Room was clean, bed was comfy. It was not a huge room but was quite adequate for our needs. I would have liked to have a swim, the water was a great temperature, but the husband had the aversion to the sulfur so I may need to go back on my own :) It is a bit out of the city and on the edge of town, so you either need your own car to get round, or you can catch a shuttle bus which runs thru the day. What was lovely was to look out the window to the geothermal valley and the rising gases of Whakarewerewe Village and the Forest beyond.
