Good hotel close to the restaurants

Pros: Price
Cons: A heatpump could be installed but that will increase the price per night.
Location: Just around the corner from the main restaurants.
The rooms are comfortable and clean. It was very warm and the fans were not enough to cool the room. We could not open the window as the room was facing the street and it was too noisy.

Maybe cheap but real cost huge

If you want your belongings stolen from your vehicle overnight while parked in the Rotorua Citizens club car park then this is the place to stay. But wait there more. The staff reaction is totally non caring. As if it a regular event. They are only too happy to give you advise after the fact of how you could have avoided the problem!!! Shame they don’t tell you of problems upon arrival There are other delightful features on offer. People vomiting in the street outside your room and large groups congregating in the street holding noisy parties between 1am to 3am. Especially appealing to party goers and those who suffer insomnia In summary this may represent a value accommodation option providing you can accept the high cost of the undesirable extras

No matter where you go if you have something of great value do not leave it visible for Joe blow passer-by to be tempted. We have had many customers with valuables' who take that extra step to come and ask if there are facilities where we can store their belongings.

Cheap accommodation

The room was slightly better than expected for the room rate, although we did have the disabled room which may have contributed to the size. The bedspread despite being well past its best appeared clean. The quilt beneath not so, however it was an extremely warm night, and thankfully a free standing fan was supplied additional to the ceiling fan.

Central location, clean, basic accommodation

Checked in about 6pm Friday night and taken through the bar to get to the lift up to the room. The other option is to walk around to the front door. The room (#3) was very clean but Rotorua was in a heatwave so the room was hot. Ceiling fan is in the corner so doesn't quite reach the bed. Free standing fan didn't work. Opened a window to let the breeze in but the kitchen vent was next to it so smell of fried food came in. Ended up not sleeping there but did leave supplies for a party at the Club the next morning. Positives: central location, price. Negatives: smell, no iron in room (but was a hairdryer).

Cozy experience

We arrived late to this place and we receive a call from the FO. They are friendly and help us to check in right away. The room is clean, totally worth it for the price we pay. Highly recommend

Great location

Pros: Location.
A simple and unpretentious hotel. Was upgraded to a larger room as it was available, which was very much appreciated. A charming experience — karaoke night in the bar below one night, karaoke night at a bar down the road the other night — that may not be to all tastes. I would have no hesitation to staying there next time I'm in Rotorua.

Clean and quiet

Pros: Good value for your money
Cons: Replace stained face cloths and bedding. A little off putting especially because the room was very clean.
Location: Lots of shops and food in walking distance. Central to everything.
Stayed one night. Was very quiet and the beds were comfy. Room was clean but a few stains on towels and covers. Room was a bit hot but there was a window and fan provided. Nice shower and good size Bathroom.
