Rotorua
Reviewed 3 days ago NEW

Our first stay here was a gift from family. Lovely lake view room with small balcony was very nice. Spa, pool area is relaxing, vert clean and just a special place to be surrounded by green fauna. Had an excellent dinner, three courses themed on chocolate. All beautifully presented.

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 26 February 2017

We stayed here for just one night upon arrival in NZ. Thus, we were pretty tired! The hotel graciously upgraded us to a killer one-bedroom apartment room, complete with a balcony with dining seating and a full kitchen with laundry facilities. They even gave us free covered parking. The view of the lake from the room was incredible! Nicely, it...

Stayed overnight on the way to Napier having spent the day in Rotarua. Great rooms and friendly service. Clean and tidy with good space for the family. Room service menu was good, a little pricey but we'll worth the $

Oh what a beautiful place, a beautiful view over the lake to the snow capped mountain, a short walk to natural hot water springs and spa. The service and meal of local produce was just magnificent and the bed and room just luxury.

Dear MJ L, A 5 star review ... that's greatly appreciated ! Wonderful to hear that you had the time to appreciate the natural beauty of Taupo.

Arrived late but check-in process was fast and smooth. Good in-room service and restaurant facilities. Free wifi for members which is fast enough for daily usage. My son also loved the environment there. Would love to return again.
