“Simply perfect!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 February 2012

There is actually nothing else to add to all the things that have been said before! Clean, modern room, wonderful location (close to popular food street and away from the worst smell:-) and people at the front desk who are not only knowledgeable, but really like what they are doing. Darryn was charming when we arrived! I especially enjoyed the swimming pool after a long day of sightseeing. Certainly the best choice for Rotorua!

From the moment I checked in to this hotel I instantly understood why it is ranked number 1 in Rotorua. The greeting and information provided at the check in counter was amazing. We received so much useful information from a lovely friendly Maori lady (wish I could remember her name).

We then were shown to our beautiful room which was on the smaller side but very comfortable. There were excellent in room facilities, good sized fridge and great selection of complimentary tea and coffee. The shower was great and large enough for a couple of sumo wrestlers!

The location is also excellent. A short walk to the lake and all of the best restaurants and cafes. I have stayed in other parts of Rotorua in the past but never this central and would highly recommend this location. We dined at a great Mexican restaurant called Sabroso one night which I have also reviewed.

My only small complaint would be that there were a few dead insects which had been squashed around the hotel room which had never been cleaned up. These were no more than smudges on the ceiling or wall but if this is the only complaint you can see how great this place is!

The hotel has been extensively and lovingly renovated from what was probably a 1960's motel.

Had a nice room, good location (Abit further from the smell),within walking distance of everything you'd need (information centre, Fenton street, eat street etc). The guys at reception can organise to have you picked up for most of your activities anyway. The service was fantastic and the facilities were very modern. Actually the service was darling. The managers were professional and friendly. They were experienced and very competent with tourist information. Quiet location tucked just far enough from the hustle and bustle and the whole place is just so well set out. It really does have a fine air to it (excuse the pun).
Cant really say I was blown away by the studio room but it was lovely all the same.
I'd definitely visit again if I was in town but would get a one bedroom. Then again (I've never liked studios) I'm sure it will suit most travellers.

Cocktail bar wasn't mind blowing but probably one of the finer places in town. Restaurant seemed quite busy over the weekend which probably could be attributed to the lovely service, extensive menu and tasteful decor.

Room Tip: Higher floors are always nice

Very chique rooms and reception, and very helpful and friendly receptionist/owner.

We were only here for one night, but were impressed by the place. Can't comment on the supposedly very good restaurant.

The only real down for us was the gym. I (think it) had a rower, stepper and runner, none of which were commercial gym standard and at least one of which was not working. No real issue, but if you are looking for a place with a gym (which we were, as a sort of fitness refuel on our road trip), then check ahead beforehand. That being said, I know that most places have no gym unless they are chains and/or huge, so something is better than nothing.

As a summary, if you are in Rotorua, then I would certainly recommend this place.
