Fabulous, friendly service who met sure all needs were met. Room had a great view and definitely a good stop! Great place to chill out after a day of adventures, which meant we never had to drive too far as we were quite central!

We are a couple got 2 night stay. I booked a room with lake view as its affordable price (just a hundred something dollars for a night). It turns out this is the most enjoyable stay ever of us in Rotorua. The room is much cleaner, newer and more attractive than its pics on the internet. We love the view looking out the picturesque lake, the comfortable king size bed and the cozy bathroom. 5 star voted for Nikhil, the duty manager, and the staff for their hospitality. Definitely worth for money. Highly recommended.

We recently had our wedding at Lake Rotoiti and the guests and family all stayed at VR - we most likely booked out 20 rooms or more. The staff including the Manager Vivek were incredibly helpful and accomodating. Our mother needed extra care with a disabled room and this was taken care of . The buffet breakfast was great and to be able to moor your boat the jetty and have a boat ramp access is a real bonus. We will continue to use VR Rotorua for our journeys to the lake in the future.

Travelled to Rotorua for the day. This hotel is in an excellent spot only a short drive out of town. Backs on to a lake, absolutely beautiful. Room was very clean, well appointed, reception staff very friendly and helpful. Has so many amenities in house, or just spend time soaking up the peaceful surroundings. Highly recommend

Great property. Very Beautiful view and good service. Nikhil was amazing and was always there to help. We stayed in the property for two nights and had a good time. Next time I am surely booking the room with a lake view.
