We stayed at the Novotel for two nights this May while on a NZ road trip. The hotel itself was relatively easy to find, and provided free parking for hotel guests. Upon arrival, we were upgraded to a lake view room by the super friendly manager that was on duty. He provided us with very useful info on a quick...

If you are looking for a four star hotel in a good location in rotorua then this the place. We did book a junior suite to give us more space. The room is great- mini bar, two wardrobes, small lounge, TV with movies and a decent sized bathroom with typical a bath/shower- the latter is not overly luxurious but fine...

We were very happy with our room and the location of this hotel. The night markets were a couple of minutes walk up the road and we had delicious "street food" for dinner. The staff were friendly and were able to help us with our enquiries.

I think it was very good in some aspects and just ok in others. The room was clean, beds were comfortable and overall stay was fine. The pool area with the sauna and pools was not the greatest. We actually had a rash on our skin after getting in the pools. Needs some cleaning and work. I woke up a...

The only good thing about the hotel is its location. We love to holiday and spend at least 30 nights a year in different hotels of the world.

While the view of the car park was a tad dreary the room itself was lovely with the most comfortable bed ever!! I want one! And big fluffy pillows too. The staff were great- smiling and helpful. Lots of choices for room service.
