"The hostel is 50m from the intercity bus. Other hostels in Rotorua have outside area ( funky green...) for almost the same price so I prefered staying in those ones, I had to stay in different hostels because one nigth was fully booked in funky green. It is clean, and they give you free pasta and rice if you ask reception. There is no lockers."

"Awesome would stay there again. There is a huge selection of great Restaurants in Rotorua to satisfy all taste sensations. We went to a lovely little Italian Restaurant called Zanellies - the menu had a lot of wonderful choices of Mains & Desserts. Shopping is also great in Rotoura with a wide selection of clothes and Gifts to buy for friends and family. There is lots to see and do - especially the New Rainbow Springs Park has lots of new attractions and the Gondola ride up to the Luge, bungie Swing and Cafe/ Restaurant was great also. We had an awesome time with lots of fun and adventure as well as relaxation and comforts back at the Hotel - the Spa bath was a great end to a couple of busy days. We look forward to our next visit to Rotorua. "

"This has been our best place to stay so far. 24hr Reception made checking in late very easy and stress-free for us. The staff were amazing, everybody always said hello. Such a happy positive vibe throughout the entire establishment from Reception through to the Restaurant and even the floor staff. Rooms were older but very clean and tidy with our room being cleaned daily. The motel was close to all the Rotorua attractions. The only thing we probably would have enjoyed was a more plush bed (our bed was on the harder side) but this has been the theme everywhere we've stayed so far. Thank you Holiday Inn for an exceptionally amazing stay, if/when we come back to Rotorua we will definitely stay again. "

"We recently stayed at the Silver Fern for 2 nights on our trip through the North Island of New Zealand. The Silver Fern was a quality stay with great staff who were happy to assist with knowledge and information for the must-see's around Rotorua. For those considering the Executive with the Spa option, I highly recommend. The spa is not a bathtub but a true spa facility and you can comfortable fit 3-4 people in it. All in all, the Silver Fern is really nice for a stay in Rotorua and we would certainly recommend it to family & friends looking to stay somewhere really comfortable with high quality furnishings..."

"We have stayed in this resort during one of the weekends in October 2016. Our booking was absolutely last minute - as we really didn't plan to stay overnight in Rotorua, but it was getting late and we decided to book a place. So booking was done literally 2-3 hours before we came to check-in & gladly we had no problems with that. The rooms price was about $160 (deluxe studio). The room itself was fairly big and reasonably modern. I would say that the shower was spacious as well, but no bathtub. There were chairs outside of the rooms - sort of like a balcony deck, some of the guests were smoking there, and the smell actually sipped into the room a little. That wasn't that great, but you can live with it. Would be better to have a separate dedicated area for smokers though. The real plus in the hotel for me was hot bathtub and hot mineral pool as well as cold pool as part of the facilities. And of course a central location. We also ordered room service which came quite fast, the presentation of food was great and beef main course was really nice. I wasn't impressed with prawn and scallop started. Overall I would rate this resort 5.5-6 out of 10. But it's definitely so much better than Grand Rotorua hotel. "

"Princes Gate hotel us ideally situated next to the Government Gardens in Rotorua. We booked the cheapest double on offer and whilstvthe room was small, the size is mentioned on the website, so it is what we expected. The shower room appeared to have been newly refurbished and was very nice. We were warned not to open the bedroom windows at night because of insects so we got extremely hot overnight (the room did not have air conditioning) and it may have been that or the soft mattress, but I didn't get a good nights sleep! We were told that there are plans to install air conditioning. We ate dinner in the restaurant, which was excellent. I had the salmon and a chocolate mille feuille and my husband had pork. There is a reasonable wine list. The staff are very helpful and well organised. The hotel communal areas are in the process of being redecorated with new wallpaper and carpets, when the bedroom we were in has air conditioning, I think it will fe worth its 4 stars"
