Quick overnight in Rotorua

Verified Expedia guest review

8/10 Very good

Ideally situated for hospital or town in a quiet area with stunning view of the lake; just 5 mins walk to town centre. Small room and en-suite, but spotlessly clean with comfortable beds and quality bedding. The only drawback for us was the creaky floorboards above when occupants walked around - but their bedtime was similar to ours! Highly recommended and very good value- we’ll be back
