The manager that was on duty 8th March to 11 th march 2015, was a very genuine warm person. We settled in room 202, with the sun making our room very light and bright. Enjoyed our stay.

Older hotel at affordable price

The hotel has a few years already and is not very modern anymore. It is ok for a quick stop-over with good location for attractions in Rotorua.

SHAME

We had a very average two nights at the Hotel we arrived to find two very thin pillows in the room no spares so phoned reception for more nothing happened. The shower was blocked trickling out and the fridge leaked so bad onto the carpet that we used one of our only two towels stopping leakage from the fridge the next morning on talking to reception they agreed to shift us to a new room which was much better fridge worked, shower fine and spare pillows. But oh the internet so so slow no matter what time of the day you used it pitaful not worth using and was costly as well. Then as I was attending a meeting at the conference room much to my horror I had to crush to big crawling cockroaches, we were also not impresses to see open doored rooms in non smoking rooms with tourists smoking madly and smoke smells drifting into the passage ways. Not a good stay at all just so so much wrong real dissappointing

Excellent location. Me and my

Excellent location. Me and my partner stayed there while it was raining. we went for a walk around the complex, and found over 10 buckets collecting drips. The front wing with the superior rooms are above average, and would only recommend staying in those. On the downside room was a little dirty, especially when you find other peoples hair located in the bathroom and next to the bed. Breakfest was not very fresh at 9.30am, i do understand it closes at 10am, but expected better. other than that; 3 out 5.

Ordered a cot, and it was not

Ordered a cot, and it was not in the room/not delivered as advised. When questioned reception, were told it 'should' be there. Vending machine didnt work - no out of order signage. Rooms are very tired- but value for money not too bad. Do something about those scrambled eggs- they are artificial and tasteless. Breakfast staff, very laid back, but reception & bar good.
