Rooms are nice and fairly recently refurbished. Standard facilities as you would expect from Holiday Inn. Has an in house guest laundry with free power which was a nice surprise. After a few days traveling we cleaned up nicely. Hotel is easy to find but is a bit away from the main strip where the restaurants are. Would stay there...

Nothing exciting but all you need for a couple nights sleep. Friendly service. Nice bar and restaurant. Reasonably priced for the location. Close to shops and tourist activities. Just be prepared for the interesting smell due to the Geothermal activity.

Thanks for taking the time to share your Holiday Inn Rotorua experience. Unfortunately the smell is the price we pay for being so close to the geothermal activity in the Whakarewarewa Thermal Reserve.

A quick visit as we stopped for a night in Rotorua and Holiday Inn was a great choice. We were upgraded on check-in to a deluxe room which had a balcony and views over the Te Puia park which was amazing. I have to say, the bed was really comfy, definitely one of the best beds I slept in this...

Nice, reasonably priced hotel - good option for families staying in Rotorua area. Conveniently located: around the corner from Whakarewarewa and within walking distance (or a short drive) to a number of local attractions. Well maintained/clean rooms. Breakfast that offers more options than your average hotel breakfast. Friendly and helpful reception staff. Good pool area. No major downsides, in case...

This hotel is a gem. Modern facility with everything for a cheap and cheerful stay. Rooms super clean and modern. Fantastic swimming pool and spas x 2. Good family restaurant and helpful staff. Loved the log fire at end of bar area. Good parking. Restrooms were immaculately clean and tidy by pool. Only issue would be distance to downtown. No...

The hotel was fine as far as the room . It has a problem with its fire alarm system. We were on a tour bus that has chosen this hotel. It is near the town which is good. There are many choices of places to eat other than the hotel. The staff was fine. BUT first night there a fire...

The room was spacious and seemed to be little aged, cleanliness can be improve. The dinner staff crew were fantastic and went extra mild to offer my young toddler with activity pack and try to cheer her when she was getting cranky. Staff were very attentive and helpful. Kids also get to dine for free with a lovely generous meal....

Hi AshyC, thank you for your review, You are correct in saying that we do not offer microwaves in rooms, they are more of Motel amenity, We are extremely reluctant to heat externally created foods, as it is a significant food safety risk to do so, and the overall health and well being of all of our guests is of...
