First appearances give an excellent impression. Lovely finishing to what is there but lacked the necessities to make the stay of any consequence. We quickly made up our minds to move on.

The cleanliness of the hotel was very good but the kettles filter was dirty O_O.. The service was friendly.. The location of the hotel was out of town.. It was 15 to 20min drive to CBD of rotorua. Pricing was fair because there was no kitchen in the room and we had got it on a special but the restaurant prices were really expensive. And we did not recieve a private spa in our room even though the picture on this website showed a spa in the bathroom.

Great location for a quiet get away or a 'retreat', which was what i was there for. Excellent service and absolutely awesome food. Very well catered. Only thing i would ping them on would be the mouldy seats outside the bottom rooms. Get rid of the canvas seats i think. Am planning a weekend get away later in the year and will be staying there again.

Pristine location 15 min drive from Rotorua. Nice and friendly staff. Nice pool (spa and sauna) facilites. Restauranf prices too high. Good t/away place across the road is equally good. Tennis court needs an uplift but OK for beginners.

Wonderfull location - peacefull and tranquil. Lovely old building but has no lift. The restaurant was great with lovely food. They missed our early morning call which could have been a problem. Would happily stay there again.

We really enjoyed our one-night stay at The Duxton. It's a perfect location & setting and very quiet. However, on what was a very warm night it would have been great to have discovered the fan stored in the wardrobe.

The hotel was lovely (needed a dust, however) but wasn't in Rotorua itself, it was a fair drive.

Hotel room was good size, plenty of room however we found too hot and no ability to adjust temp. Was located quite away out of the City Centre.

We arrived very late - about 9.15pm - but the service was very friendly and helpful. Dinner and breakfast were excellent and the room was ideal. This is a lovely hotel which is very good value.
