Cost of taxi to Rotorua $50 one way. Local shuttle overbooked on weekend, so could not use ($30).They do take credit cards which helps. You really need a car to stay here. Weird layout of bathroom: open shutters to bedroom allowing you to enjoy view of outdoors, and for anyone in your room to see you in the bathroom! Grounds... More

With our family and a large group of friends to spend the new year's eve in Rotorua. A 15-20 drive to the main area of Rotorua. The hotel is set right on the lake front and it is a lovely setting. There are limited water sports, 1 restaurant/bar, pool (heat pump broken so it was freezing), spa and garden areas.... More

A spur of the moment getaway with my husband saw us book two nights at the Duxton and we were absolutely delighted with our choice. Lovely, serene setting (even in the middle of NZ winter) on the shores of Lake Rotoiti. The rooms were extremely clean, well appointed and warm. Loved the bathroom with cosy underfloor heating, deep bath for... More

I only stayed for 1 night here but I thought it was beautifully situated in between lakes Rotorua and Rotoiti. The garden view room was amazing, enormous bed and I loved the flow with the bathroom. The fact they have a plunger in full view and charge for $4 for plunger coffee was a bit mean but amenities were nice.... More

We did not stay at the Duxton but dined there one evening and I can safely say I have never had such poor service. The person that greeted us was grumpy - and we had to wait 40 mins before we were even offered a drink. At one point the service was so bad that my husband had to get... More

Stayed one night recently at the Duxton, purchasing a 'Romeo and Juliet' package. This was around the $450 NZ value, so not cheap. This included Dinner, Breakfast and a welcoming bottle of Champagne and chocolates. The hotel is tired and needs a thorough dry cleaning. The musty smell was overpowering throughout the hotel. The service as poor. The bar was... More

My girlfriend and I stayed in a garden view room and had an enjoyable stay at the hotel. The rooms were clean and nicely decorated. The staff while not the happiest of people were still helpful and took interest in our activities. We did not use the dinning room for dinner or breakfast so cannot really offer an opinion, but...

We booked three nights in a double room, Bed & Breakfast for NZ$190.00 per night through Wotif.com. The driveway into the hotel was unimpressive but any concerns were quickly forgotten when we went inside the hotel. Our room was a superior, upstairs Lake View Room with doors opening onto a small viewing platform. The room was a modest size but... More
