First off ... it's now Amora Lake Resort Okawa Bay. Though the name/mgmt changed in February, I received no notification of the change, and drove by the hotel several times, before pulling in. As I explained to the receptionist that I appear to be lost, she just asked for my name and handed me the room key - i.e. no...

The room was musty,killed a large cockroach, the electric jug did not work , and the standard lamp bulb was blown. It took several hours for these items to be rectified.. The service was very casual. Bar and restaurant prices high. whilst the setting is very pleasant we would not stay here again.

My partner and I have been meaning to stay at the Duxton for a while, and it didn't disappoint. We went for a night srtay in one of the superior lake view rooms. The room was clean and tidy, on the second floor with a view over Okawa bay. The king bed was comfortable, and the Hotel quiet, giving a...

we stayed for one night at the duxton in december. it was a lovely place to stay on our way further north. we had a nice room, quite small but with a lovely bathroom. it overlooked the lake so that was nice. The downside of this hotel for some would be that is quite remote and no cafes or restaurants...

Having stayed in numerous quality hotels over the years I can honestly say that I enjoyed my 3 day stay at the Duxton Okawa Bay best of all. We had a great room looking onto Lake Rotoiti which was lovely to wake up to in the morning. The restaurant served high quality food both at breakfast and dinner and all...

We stayed here for only one night on a spur of the moment trip to Rotorua from Auckland. I was so pleased with this hotel. The room was beautiful, bathroom was awesome (with a great shower and a huge bathtub). The linens were really nice, pillows not the best. We had a beautiful view of the lake, and there was...

This hotel has one of the most enviable locations in the North Island. My room was overlooking Lake Rotoiti which was a sheer joy to wake up to in the morning. Comfortable rooms, pleasant staff and a great breakfast made this hotel very memorable.

The Duxton Hotel is certainly surrounded by stunning scenery but unless you are prepared to pay for all 44 rooms at $249 per room, I suggest you don't book this place for a wedding. Whatever happened to what the customer wants? I was told by the lady who showed us around that if we wanted to have our wedding at...

Looks may be deceiving from the moment you drive through the main entrance. Set in a weatherboarded lodge type building and on the serene lake edge our stay was enjoyable. We booked into the superior lake view room which was very spacious with a seperate lounge and balcony with a view to die for. The bathrooms were clean and spacious...

This hotel had very mixed reviews on Tripadvisor so I was rather concerned. The hotel is a few miles out of Rotorua in a beautiful setting overlooking the lakes and away from the smells! We had a garden room which had a beautiful view and was away from the noise of the road. The room was extremely comfortable; we were...
