    What a find! Absolute silence in downtown Rotorua. Rooms are large and well laid out, beds comfortable, showers hot + strong. Slowing its age in places, but you're not paying $300 a night so who cares? Will recommend to others and would happily stay again.

    Only stayed one night but excellent location within walking distance to city and beautiful museum close by. Hot pool and spa in hotel was lovely. Very friendly staff and helpful with where to go for attractions. Large clean room with a balcony and very quiet.
