We stayed for two nights at the end of a three week vacation and what a relaxing place to end our trip! From the moment we walked in the owner Colin greeted us with a smile and acknowledged from our faces that we were in need of a nap. After giving us some quick helpful advice on activities to do...

Dear Sarah, We appreciate you taking the time to write your comments on your recent stay at Quest Rotorua Central. Nice to hear the Hot Tub was enjoyed, yes it can take some time to fill up, but like you say, worth the wait.

I stayed here for two nights, on 24th and 26th of January 2016. Both apartments I stayed in were very spacious. Comfortable beds and effective air conditioning (very cold, which is perfect because i'm a hot sleeper). Walking distance to the Tutaneki street restaurants near the lake front reserve. Highly recommended.

While touring NZ, we stayed a couple nights at the Quest Rotorua. It's situated centrally with restaurants and shops literally on the doorstep! The rooms are well appointed, the hot tub on the veranda an added bonus. Colin made us very welcome with his own brand of Scottish hospitality; nothing too much bother! Thank you!

We stayed here for three nights. The apartment was spacious & well appointed - cooking, laundry & lovely comfortable chairs to relax. Good value for money. The staff were friendly & helpful. The location was central CBD & a pick up point for tours. Would definitely recommend.

Like all the Quest hotel we used, we were very satisfied. I was so pleased to be told that the Reception would meet me at the parking lot to help me fit in the tight spot I was allocated. Then they took care of our luggage. I said we could do it but they insisted that it was part of...

I was in Rotorua for a conference at a different hotel with limited availability so stayed here. It is a great set up, modern, clean and fresh, lots of space with kitchenette (teas, coffee (plunger) hot chocolate etc., fresh milk in the fridge. There is a washer. Easy walking distance around town from this central location. Highly recommended.
