This was the perfect position for what we as a family were doing on our short visit to Rotorua. It was handy to our favourite fish and chip place and the shopping. The room was perfect for what we required, although perhaps the bedrooms were slightly on the small side. We were in a two bedroom unit which slept 5... More

Our room had brown on brown deco with very heavy bedding,not like the advertising photos the but clean and basic. The bathroom was very poor, using the shower covered the majority of the bathroom with water, all the cabinetry was water swollen, grotty grout around very slippery tiles. Location good. Asked for tax invoice, twice, none supplied.

Stayed here for 2 nights with the family. Very central as is over the road from the Central hub of Warehouse, Briscoes, Farmers etc. Accommodated our family of 5 (3 kids, 2 adults) well upstairs. Very clean. Lovely staff. TVs in both bedrooms, and another downstairs. Full kitchen. However, the decor was in need of some serious updating. Downstairs had... More

Victoria Lodge, Rotorua was tops. Nothing was too much trouble.

Our bed was comfortable and all the necessary room essentials were available. A cooked breakfast is offered ($19.00) and was ample and tasty. Off street parking is available... More

We had a nice stay in room 1 which was small but cozy. Julia and Ryan, the owners, were very helpful in making our stay comfortable, and also they were so kind to make some reservations for us. It was nice to be off the main drag (Fenton) and have a quiet night.
