Very Good8.0
Convenient and appropriately priced
Perhaps we caught the hotel on a not-so-good day. Both elevators were out of service, which caused us to take out luggage up/down multiple flights of stairs. In our room the ceiling fan appeared to be loose from its ceiling mounts, a little scary.. But survived the night. Otherwise the room was quite large, had comfy beds and was quiet - despite facing the street.

The hotel elevator had fire. All the guests had to leave the rooms at 11pm. We were very scared.

older hotel needs a bit of a face lift
hotel a little bit dated, and service very slow. Took way too long to check in and then one lady walks in and skips the line and checks in within 3 minutes with the clerk totally oblivious. Price and neighborhood ok, but nothing fancy.

Distinction Hotel Rotorua
The trip was excellent and the staff at the hotel were friendly and helpfull. The only disappointment was the first evening meal we had at the Pavillion restaurant the fish platter was overcooked. So for the rest of our evening meals we went to the onsite Japanese restaurant which was excellent

The room was basic looked to not of been used in some time, glasses were stuck to the worktop, no cover on the ironing board, no information guide and no view. Swimming pool was good, other guests seemed to all have dressing gowns.
