We arrived in Rotorua after a long bus ride and were very happy to experience an efficient check in process. The front desk staff was friendly and helpful with suggestions on where to eat and activities we could do during our stay. The room was bright and clean and we were happy with our stay.

This was a joy. We had everything we could possibly want and need. With the added benefit of self catering and laundry facilities. Within walking distance to all the central attractions, restaurants, parks , lake and the Blue Baths.

Great location in Central Rotorua, walkable to everything, so once car was in the secure parking offered (charge) we were able to explore on foot. Very friendly and helpful reception staff, room was excellent, comfy bed, separate lounge and kitchen, sofa not so good. Excellent laundry and cooking facilities. We had a terrace with hot tub - perfect.

We stayed 2 nights at the Quest and were very happy with our stay there. Excellent downtown location. We were checked in by "Paul" (I think) and he was extremely polite and helpful. Our room was really nice. We'd stay there again.

Very friendly and helpful staff with a ready smile. The hotel is well located in Rotorua, just a short walk from "eat street" and easy to find.
