Prince's Gate Hotel, Rotorua
They immediately upgraded us to a room in the historic hotel . They have an addition that I was unaware of and originally given a room to but the moment I requested to stay in the actual hotel they were very accommodating. Happy hour in the bar/lobby was so lovely and dinner in the dining room was affordable and delicious. I loved the white table cloths and service. My son and his friends from University of Canterbury joined us for happy hour and dinner and the hotel was so hospitable.
