I was lucky enough to get a really special.price, due to cancellations from the latest change in alert levels unfortunate for the hotel but lucky for me. Saying this I would not hesitate in paying more for future trips, for this level of accommodation and superior service. Enjoyed a lovely breakfast each morning, the lovely hostess even remembered by breakfast from the day prior. Seriously faultless stay. If you are remotely undecided of your accomm choice, make it easy and book this hotel.

A relaxing stay, comfortable beds, friendly and efficient staff. Hot pools were great at the end of the day. An easy stroll to the shops, cafes, restaurants and gardens. Loved the historic atmosphere throughout the buildings. Recommended.

We stopped here for a drink after exploring the CBD, Government Gardens and Sulphur Point. The old building is fabulous and beautifully restored. I have decided, next time I'm in Rotorua, I will stay here - so worth the treat!

We had a room on the first floor balcony. This is an historic and picturesque building with more character than most modern hotels, but also clean and comfortable. Booking and check in were smooth and professional. We used the bar, dined at Dukes Restaurant and enjoyed the breakfast buffet next morning. Service was excellent and the food quality also very good. Location is ideal, in the heart of the city, just across the road from the Government Gardens and within easy walking distance of the Polynesian pools, restaurants and the lake. Happy to stay here again when next in Rotorua.
