At an average price of around $185 per night, this hotel is very well fitted out. The room, although not very big, is ideal for a couple of nights stay. The bed is comfortable, the bathroom is well supplied and kept very clean. The coffee/tea/milk are adequate and refilled daily. Internet was good. Rotorua, of course, is a beautiful little...

This is exactly what I wanted in Rotorua. A cheap, clean, dependable, well located hotel, and this was all of those things. You wouldn't want to pay for a luxury hotel in a town that smells like Sulfur, would you? Heck, I even got a view of a natural hot spring out of window. You could see steam rising from...

I have stayed in alot of Holiday Inn's around the world and this has to be the worse. The room was extremely small and tired looking. Despite the notices saying it is the air quality.. this does not account for the bed linen and general room furniture. As previous reviewers have said, don't bother to pay for a balcony, it...

I visited this hotel during a business tour. First of all this hotel is a bit away from the Rotorua city centre. Well nearby the hotel there is absolutely nothing to do in regards to pubbing, shopping, hanging around etc. No shops nearby. So stay here if you are sure that do not want do any of the above activity....

The room was small but adequate for what we needed. The food was great, good selection. The double beds really need to be replaced with Queens. They weren't comfortable at all. Housekeeping was very slack: while we were out during the day you would expect to come back and find a tidy made up room....this didn't happen all the time...

Stayed at the Holiday Inn for 3 nights. Fair rates, good facilities, great service. The heated pool is amazing, warm like a spa. Apparently it is heated by the local hot springs, so it is environmentally friendly. Heaps of towels available, great facility. The staff are friendly and accommodating. Rooms are nice. Very clean. Would stay there again
