Ambassador Thermal Motel, Rotorua

Roomie, clean and centralized
The hotel is older and a bit quirky but the large size of the rooms accommodate large families and have full kitchens. Plus the staff is super friendly and are willing to accommodate. It's central to all the shops and thermal pools.

Rotorua fun
Older hotel with very limited parking. Huge living area with kitchen. Our unit had a bath + ½ bath ... beds for 7 people. Suggested how she felt about our exploring since I had been there several times before. Many changes in town partially due to natural forces &/or tourists.
