Business stay

Very friendly and welcoming staff. My room was quite large and very comfortable, slightly dated but only slightly. They provided a courtesy bus which was very good. The restaurants were also very nice. I left my passport in the room when I left and fortunately I was still in Rotorua when they called to advise, I couldn't have been more grateful.

The Distinction Hotel on arrival

The Distinction Hotel on arrival looks like a nice place to stay and the staff were really friendly. A good breakfast, nice rooms and clean. However we booked the deluxe room and it appears that they are in the wing that is 30 meters from an intersection on the main road for trucks passing through Rotorua! As the rooms do not have airconditioning and the weather was warm (not hot) you needed the sliding doors on the balcony open until the noise from the trucks required us to shut the doors and turn the ceiling fan on high if any attempt to sleep was to be had.

The room we stayed in catered to our needs fine but was quite shabby... in need of an update! Other then that, I would stay there again, in a flasher room...

This was the perfect base for

This was the perfect base for our family long weekend in Rotorua. The rooms are very spacious and well appointed and the beds were really comfortable. The kids loved swimming in the heated outdoor pool, and were intrigued by the private grotto spa pools. Our family rate was excellent, especially as it included full breakfast for each of us (and not just the continental breakfast, but a cooked one!). Will definitely be staying there again and would recommend the Distinction to anyone going to Rotorua. the only gripe would be the Pavilion restaurant. We booked having checked out the lunch menu and imagining that the dinner menu would be along similar lines - it wasn't. It was pretty expensive with not much choice. Next time we'd eat in the bar, which served the menu we were after. Guess we should've checked first...

Rooms newly renovated and very comfortable. Breakfast choice excellent and staff helpful. The Hotel clearly has had a number of additions and the only downside was that the only lift was some distance from the rooms but this was a minor detail.

A little shabby but a pleasant room with good beds and linen. A little out of the way if you do not have a car. Excellent breakfast included with room rate.
