The room was nice and cozy in the evening with a fantastic heating system that made it toasty in minutes in winter. By day the lack of natural light due to the limited windows gave the place a slightly monastic air. Service was so so - on a couple of our visits to the office it felt like we were...

We as a family of 4 stayed 2 nights in a two-bedroom apartment situated just around the corner from the main motel complex. Our entire stay from check-in to check-out was amazing. As soon as we stepped in to the apartment I was very impressed by how clean, modern and well-equipped it was. The photos really don't do this apartment...

Stayed 1 night in Rotarua. Rotovegas was well situated with easy access to shops , supermarket and restaurants. Rooms are quite large with kitchen facilities. Things are a little dated but very clean and comfortable. Staff were extremely friendly and helpful with giving recommendations, directions and chasing up some extra towels for us. Room heating was adequate but not sure...
