The hotel is located in a very convenient place with easy access to all restaurant restaurant and busy Rotorua. The hotel staff was nice and friendly, the restaurant in the hotel is okay and we had breakfast all three day from the hotel.

Spent 3 nights for a conference. Staff very friendly and helpful. Room clean and modern with great view of lake. Didn't get a chance to use the spa or pools. Didn't go to the restaurant as Eat Street was only a few steps away. Room rate good value for money. Would happily stay again if back in Rotorua.

We had the superior room on the second floor. Fabulous large window overlooked the lake and the park. The bed was most comfy and king sized. Restaurants at our doorstep. Had a very filling breakfast at Atlas restaurant. Gym area looked great and the pool and thermal pools were a treat to relax in. Would stay here again!
