    We loved everything about the Hotel, service and staff were great, we ate in the dinning room at night and food was great everyone was so friendly and will definitley stay there next time we are in Rotorua. We had booked in a hurry as we bought someone down for a funeral and were so pleased we stayed there.

    Booked Princes Gate as we had stayed there before. Reason for booking, to hear Elizabeth Marvelly sing at Rotorua Civic Theatre. Hotel run by family, excellent service and decor in keeping with age and period of hotel. Can fault nothing.

    whole friendly atmosphere.

    Very good

    we used the self catering suite rather than hotel bedroom and it provided all that we needed.

    Some traffic noise as our room adjacent to the road

    The location is perfect

    The bed was only a double and exteremely lumpy and there were not fans in the rooms. The windows only opened outwards so this didn't let much air or breeze in.

    Fabulous

    Convenience to town & restaurants; free parking; spacious suite

    Would have liked to have washing machine in the suite instead of at communal area. The apartment is a little dated (70s-80s).

    Loved the contemporary feeling in a very old hotel.

    Would be nice to have had bathrobes and full house wifi.

    I loved how they've kept everything 'original'. I love historical buildings like this and so it was an amazing experience to stay here.

    Fabulous

    We liked the comfort of the facilities and also the dinner and show at night

    Having to get luggage up and down the stairs

  • 7.4
    Very good

    close to the centre of Rororua

    The block we stayed in was disjointed from the hotel making it feel more like a motel

    Fabulous

    Freindly front desk staff who noticed I had a walking stick and change my apartment so I did not have to negotiate stairs.

    I was in apartment 42 and I found it very hot, even with the lounge and bathroom heaters turned off I needed windows open all night and no blankets on.

    Superb

    I found the staff to be friendly and highly professional as well as welcoming. I enjoyed the location of the hotle, the comfort of the rooms, breakfast in the restaurant and the easy welcoming atmosphere. Thankyou for adding to an already enjoyable time in Rotorua.

    My only gripe was that my bed0head banged against the wall everytime I rolled over or moved in bed. Made me think I would not enjoy the bed on honeymoon!!
