Stayed at the Novotel Rotorua Lakeside in september 13 for a conference. Staff there were great, room was large, well equiped and very clean. Breakfast each day was excellent with a vast ammount of items to choose from. Staff in the bar areas were excellent, would not hesitate to reccomend this hotel to those visiting Rotorua.

Thoroughly enjoyed my stay. My room was large with a view of the lake. Very pleasant. I slept well. Room had a safe. There was a fixed shower in the tub, and plenty of room for toiletries. Good breakfast, particularly the croissants - they went fast! Free Wifi in lobby for limited time. Nice staff.

Situated next to the Lake Rotorua, the hotel has easy access to the lake promenade and the restaurant street. The staffs are friendly and helpful. The room is spacious and clean, wifi is fast and stable, and the lake view is splendid. Plenty of parking and it's free, unlike the hotel in Hamilton. Definitely will stay again if we come...
