Ambivalent impression
We stayed here for one night. I had been to Rotorua before, and had noticed this hotel due to its charming exterior. In a town where the construction of eye-wateringly ugly modern buildings is apparently a popular sport, Prince's Gate is a lovely relic from a bygone era. Positive: - The general ambience of the hotel is lovely, outside and inside. I do not regret having experienced this. Ambivalent to Negative: - Room sizes are constrained due to the age of the hotel: they are rather small by modern standards. But they are ok for a short stay, and the furnishings are mostly period authentic. - Staff are not particularly friendly. They are professional and courteous enough: but if you are trying to be decidedly upmarket, you do need to have that little extra when engaging with your guests. - We had breakfast at the hotel. The buffet was ok: but again not up to the standards of the sort place this pretends to be. And it was not value for money. - General cleanliness is all right, at least in the room and in public spaces. However, the hygiene of the hotel spa was an outright disaster, and actually disgusting. Given all the above points, the hotel in its current form is not really value for money. In Rotorua, you can pay less than half as much per night, and get a larger, cleaner room with a hygienic pool. But as the building itself has enormous charm, I do hope that they improve in the future: it would be a crying shame if this place were to disappear.

Full of character
It is a beautiful hotel with great character. Our room had a pleasant decor, very clean and tidy. Just let down a little with drapes that were not block out, and as our room had a large window and faced the street the room was not dark during the night. Also we found the bar and breakfast staff rather cool and were kind of going through the momtions. Nothing unpleasant but just cool.

Beautifully kept place - would stay again
Lovely, clean room in a great location. Stayed with a group of friends and we booked 4 rooms between us. All were beautifully presented and unique. Ours was one of the smaller ones but had everything we needed
