We are trying to decide between Millenium Hotel and Sudima Lake Hotel in Rotorua. Which is better? Also which maori show is the best?
Not sure when you are looking at being in Rotorua, but perhaps look at the top 12 Motels in Rotorua on Trip[ Advisor, as you may find that you can get a more personal experience at a better rate, and access to a genuine geo-thermal Mineral Pool. Something quite special to experience - especially over the winter months.
A fairly basic Mum and Dad type motel is the Kuirau Park lodge www.kuirauparklodgerotorua.co.nz but I mention it as it has basic concrete, but adequate, and very genuine, geothermal pools, in the back of the ground floor units. Make sure you follow the instructions carefully and put in HEAPS of cold water, as the geothermal water is boiling hot.
As MariaandRon say, it is particularly special over the winter months, and it is nice to have one to yourself.
If you go swimming at one, try the one out at Waikite Valley, in a nice rural environment.
Remember, whatever type of pool you pick in the end, that it is very important you do not put your head under water, as there is a risk of amoebic meningitis in thermal waters.
