From the moment we entered and Zam greeted us, we knew we had chosen a great place to stay. Our room was large, clean and comfortable. The location was great too. All the staff were friendly and helpful.

The accommodation and facilities were set to perfection and this had made our stay all the more enjoyable. The fact that the room and facilities were well beyond our expectations, made us regret staying with you for the one night. Definitely worth staying for a longer period. Just blown away by the friendly service and accommodation.

Then there was Paul he was so helpful. He began by showing us to our room. He then explained how the aircon and TV worked. This...

We recently stayed in the Quest Rotorua for 4 days and found the hotel to be the ideal place. The hotel is very clean and modern. The location is very central and in walking distance to restaurants, shops and supermarkets. The staff went above and beyond in helping us to find local attractions that we would enjoy and provided discount...

We booked a Studio King and it was spacious enough for two adults and a child. The room came equipped with a kitchenette, medium size fridge, small dining table, a desk, and two lounging chairs. There was also a washer and dryer in the room which came in handy. We were pleasantly surprised upon checking in. Staff were welcoming, friendly,...

This place is great on so many fronts. The central location makes it very handy and accessible to "eat street" and many other local attractions. The owners and staff here are very friendly and helpful. The apartments were impeccably presented with fresh furnishings and very generous in size.

We were 3 couples (1 executive studio, 1 studio apartment, and 1 1-bedroom apartment) and this is the place to stay while visiting Rotorua. Each apartment is clean, modern, comfortable. They each have a kitchenette and their own washer/dryer (a lifesaver!). Parking is available onsite. This is located in downtown Rotorua within 5-10 minute walk of tons of shopping and...

Our apartment was on the 3rd floor near the back of the building and so was very quiet which suited us well.The apartment is not spacious but has all "mod. cons" and is comfortable, clean and in good condition. The kitchen was more than adequate for our needs and the bathroom has a washer and dryer. All the staff we...

The Quest hotel is amazing. The proximity in the city is great with a cute little french cafe a few doors up. The apartments are beautifully appointed, modern and self contained and we were lucky enough to spend 4 nights in one of the executive suites with outside hot tub! What really sets this place apart is the hosts and...
