In-room private spa is the one attracting us. But if you fill hot water into spa, you could not have shower, it seems hot water was limited supplied :( Daily room service and bed setting service made us satisfied. Very good location you could walk to everywhere!

Comfortable stay walking distance to town
Welcomed to the hotel by the manager, who couldn’t do any more to help if needed. The room was spacious and comfortable, although only used the spa on my last morning. Lots of opportunities to walk to the town centre and Government Gardens from the hotel, whether for a beer, shop or food. 2 supermarkets nearby to help use the cooking facilities in room

4/10 Fair

On arrival the man in the office was abrupt and seemed to be in a big hurry to show us our room and wasn’t at all welcoming. The room’s windows and doors were shut so it wasn’t aired out and it was extremely hot inside with no aircon. There was a pedestal fan in a cupboard that he did find time to show us! We did arrive on a summers evening and it was a hot day.

Great Value
Went to ROTORUA for a funeral on New Years Eve. Was lucky to find any accommodation. Golden Glow was quiet and good value.
