Very impressed with our accomodation. Our room was clean, warm and spacious for 2 of us. Very reasonable cost and the choice of restaurants was excellent I would definitely recommend and stay again.

My family, consisting of 2 adults and 2 children thoroughly enjoyed our first stay at Hotel Distinction. Staff were top class and facilities were amazing. We enjoyed the heated pools outside and the close proximity of Rotorua's many attractions. We also enjoyed the fact that we could relax at the bar with a meal while our kids enjoyed themselves in the activity room which was close by. Also the Hotel's buffet breakfast was truly amazing! This will be our place to stay now when we come to discover Rotorua again!

We would have enjoyed our stay fine however we unfortunately had a young family with 2 children in the next room. One child woke twice in the night screaming & woke us up. The next morning very early they were running up & down the corridor yelling at the top of their voices. Too bad if anyone else required peace & quiet. As we'd had a disturbed night anyway we were less than impressed by their inconsiderate behaviour. They were also in the pool very early with their father also yelling at the top of their voices. What's up with that? Do they not care that there are others around who might not appreciate their very loud children
