We stayed at the Duxton hotel for 2 nights. Overall we were very indifferent about the place; the hotel is located approximately 15 minutes drive from the centre of Rotorua which meant that the smell of Sulphur was not as strong as being based centrally in town, though sulphur can still be smelt. The hotel, sits right next to a lovely lake and the views and the setting are lovely. Our room was on the ground floor and we had double doors leading straight out to the garden, meaning that we could sit outside and take in the beautiful views.
The hotel is a very sedate place; there is a swimming pool at the front as enter reception. The main entrance to the hotel is very uninspiring, its tired, and could do with sprucing up generally. Having seen the reception we were worried about the rooms, but they were OK, the beds were comfortable, bathroom plain and simple, but the showers weren’t that great and almost dribbled out the water.
The dining room looked a bit stuffy and slightly pretentious so we never ate dinner at the hotel; instead we drove into town for dinner and were never disappointed with the food available. Breakfast at the hotel was OK, I would say stick to the continental option.
All in all an OK stay, nice location, but the hotel needs updating. .
