One bedroom - looking over commercial properties. Checked in and they wanted another $50 for my 4 year old to stay in a bed. The booking clearly showed that I had selected two adults and one child in the one bedroom - plus the booking had 3 people showing when I selected. I do not expect to be charged on...

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...

First impressions count and we were not disappointed. Check in was inviting and professional with our host Zam personally showing us to our carpark, our room and recommending local attractions and key areas of interest. Our room had everything we needed from the well equipped kitchen, super comfortable king bed, great bathroom and even a washer and dryer. We found...

We stayed at Quest for three nights and had an excellent stay. Zam at the front desk is charming, helped us with our luggage and explained the workings of the room. We pre-ordered breakfast packs for the room which was a great convenience. Also pre-reserved a covered parking space. The room was immaculately clean and housekeeping very responsive when I...

We stayed in Rotorua one night during our road trip through the North Island and would definitely recommend it for its accommodation and location.

Well informed staff member. Very impressed with her knowledge and enthusiasm. The room was spacious and well stocked with all the necessities. Cleaned beautifully and most comfortable. Location was brilliant and central to every thing. Every one showed that they CARED and it reflected in the high standard of service. Compliments to management for their well trained staff.
