We stayed here for 2 nights during the Labour weekend. Nice place and helpful staff. Downside about this place is the carpets need a change, very limited parking and wish there's a roof top over the pool as we were getting sun burn sitting in the hot poo.

If you have a camper van and you want to stay in a motel for the night, this is the place to stay, a bit out of town, and very noisy. No where to get food or breakfast. The rooms are large, spacious and lovely. The beds are very comfortable.

Within walking distance of the centre, rooms had separate shower room and lounge with 'hallway' incorporating a kitchenette area.

The Lake Rotorua Hotel is ideal for travelling tourists. Rooms are spacious with all the facilities you need. Although on a main road, the room we stayed in was very quiet. The heated pool & spa are clean and inviting even on bleak cold days. From Andre at reception to the cleaning staff, all are helpful and friendly.
