We were not disappointed. Even though the hotel is getting a bit dated I thought it was better than 2 Star. it was neat and tidy. Overall a comfortable stay. Good Value Plus ---- You do not have to pay for parking.

Excellent venue, within easy reach of city shops, etc. We stayed over a weekend to attend our friends' 40th wedding anniversary celebrations at the hotel itself. Rooms were very spacious, spotless, warm, with great views of the lake from our balcony. We had read previous reviews prior to booking, and had concerns, but these were quickly dispelled, and we would most certainly stay there again. Our only negative comment would be the excessive cost of the room's minibar drinks and restaurant main meals, otherwise a very enjoyable stay.

Overall my stay was pleasant . There were either some very noisy visitors or staff on my floor which went on until 11.30 each day and begab at 5.30. Also there was a smell of smokers in the corridor > my room No was 206 . I also had a bar of chocolate that I had purchased removed rom the fridge

The only quirk would be the shower curtain over the bath...the bottom of the curtain was mouldy. thought it should have been nice and clean and white. Should of been changed. Apart from that - it was lovely.

Tired hotel in need of make-over, made worse by atrocious staff conduct. We were there for our wedding anniversary and were having a nice lie-in when at 9am there were two knocks on the door followed by the door opening. I made a hasty dash to the door to prevent the male room service employee from entering the room. "What time is checkout?" 11am. Go figure. Back to bed then 10 minutes later another knock on the door from a different cleaner trying to enter the room. Lucky I had the security latch on this time. Unbelieveable! Complained to reception who were apologetic, but no apology from management to date.

Very pleasant stay, the room overlooked the racecourse and was within 20 mins walking distance of the town and Polynesian spa. There was no safe in the room, but these were provided at Reception with a personal key. Staff very pleasant.

The hotel is a short cab ride from the centre of town, quite a long walk, so not as conveniently located if you were wanting to be close to the Events Centre. That said the cab fare is around $13. I was upgraded to a King Bed, the room was enormous with a Spa and on the ground floor. The air conditioning worked well and there was no offensive odour that Rotarua is famous for. Front desk and dining staff were very friendly and anxious to please (New Zealanders are renowed for this).

The Hotel looked old and not fully refurbished. No Air Conditioning in the room (just a fan). Food in the restaurant was quite bad, I would try to avoid it next time.

A good quality hotel near the racecourse with good facilities. The room was huge and quite well decorated with a balcony overlooking the racecourse. Service at reception was friendly and efficient. We would stay here again if we revisited Rotorua. Great value for a hotel of this standard.

Service was good. The accomodation was very tired and access through the back door was a little ordinary, but other than that all was ok.

We had a room on the 4th level that was huge, the room was nicely furnished with very a comfotable bed. The staff were friendly and helpful, the price we paid included breakfast which was scrumptious.

Have stayed here many times before but this [website] booking would be the cheapest price we have ever paid for Rydges accom. We thought a deluxe room would give us one of the spa rooms but no such luck. However room we were in was spacious and well appointed. I do wish they would bring back the in room plunger coffee they had when they first opened. Nice restaurant food for dinner

My only comment is that I am sure that my profile asks for a non-smoking room. The room we were in although very clean did have a smell of cigarettes when we first arrived. Luckily we could open the windows and let fresh air blow through. Otherwise a great stay. The staff in the resturant were excellent and catered to our requirements as I am allergic to many foods.
