Stunning view of the Lake
The pool was not in service and the Wi-Fi was really really slow. But we got a free room upgrade with a spa pool, this definitely made up for the poor start. The buffet breakfast was awesome and the view from the room was stunning.

Great but high-priced hotel for families
The hotel was in a convenient location close to shops and sightseeing attractions. The room was very large and the beds were comfortable. The restaurant offered a modest variety of meals. When our server made an error in our dinner order on the second night, he did not charge us for our child's meal. The breakfast buffet included a variety of hotel and cold dishes which were the same every day. The price of the room was very expensive but as this was the only hotel I could book over New Year at short notice, we did not have another option. It is a good hotel for families, especially with the provision of free washers and dryers, which was a wonderful feature not found at other hotels that we have stayed in previously. The pool area was nice and included a spa pool. The pool is located directly above the restaurant and the noise from the pool carries to the restaurant and bar if the swimmers get boisterous.

Expected more
The reason I chose this hotel was for the reviews, location, and pictures. I definitely expected more from this place. I can't complain too much, you get what you pay for. Walking in to the lobby, the hotel looks nice and new. However, the room was large but a bit outdated. It just didn't feel comfortable. It's location is along a huge strip of accommodations. We still drove everywhere (although not very far). Just to warn you, it is located in a part of Rotorua that has a sulfur smell from the thermal pools, especially if it's been raining. I should have just spent the extra money to stay in a nice place 20 minutes away along the lake.

Great if you have a function on at this hotel
We were staying here for a wedding which was in the Rydges hotel so it was very convenient. Overall our stay was very good, a few minor things where the breakfast selections weren't refilled as needed and we had a few elderly people with us who found some of the doors difficult to open as they were too heavy. Other than that I think the hotel was satisfactory.
