FAQs about hotels in Rotorua








A Volcanic Land of Wonders

Rotorua is living proof of the magnificent, and sometimes mind-boggling, might of nature. Smoking hot springs, bubbling mud pools and fast-spouting geysers give the surrounding landscape an almost other-worldly feel.

This New Zealand city sits in the Waimangu Volcanic Valley, the world’s newest geothermal hotspot. It was created after the 1886 eruption that covered Te Wairoa Buried Village, between 2 of many lakes gracing this fertile terrain. By Lake Rotorua’s shores is the luxurious Polynesian Spa with its thermal pools. Just behind in Government Gardens are the city’s best cultural offerings: the Arts Village, Tamaki Maori Village and Rotorua Museum, in an elegant former bath house.

Native animals roam in Rainbow Springs Kiwi Wildlife Park below Mount Ngongotaha, accessible via the Skyline cable car. The views while ascending make it obvious why this is called the Bay of Plenty. Tikitere Thermal Park on the opposite side of the lake is known as Hell’s Gate, but as long as you can ignore the sulphuric smell, the spas are simply heavenly.

More springs are in Whakarewarewa Thermal Reserve, whose surrounding forest is popular for mountain biking, and Wai-O-Tapu where the Champagne Pool is a striking mix of green and orange. 

Booking.com’s accommodation range is as diverse as the scenery, encompassing luxury hotels, cheap hostels and motels near Rotorua Airport.

    So much to do.

    So much to do. Something for everyone and options for all ages and abilities. The scenery is beautiful. I loved walking through the redwoods. The tourist attractions are expensive and that is a shame as you need to choose and cannot do as much as you would like if you are on a budget. However, it is a beautiful city and I will definitely return.

    Rotorua is a great place to stay with plenty to see and do...

    Rotorua is a great place to stay with plenty to see and do as long as the weather is fine. When wet there are not a lot of indoor activities to do other the Polynesian Pools, Government Gardens, and the Maori Village with the carving displays. Many restaurants are available with a great variety of cuisines. Accommodation is many and varied but it can be difficult to find one that meets all expectations as some of the advertising is not that clear.

    This house is large and has everything needed but furniture...

    This house is large and has everything needed but furniture and bedding are old. House could be cleaned a bit better as the room I stayed in had cobwebs in the corners. The furniture is old and stained from use. The sheets on my bed were stained and the bedding was old. All bedding was clean. This house is on the edge of Rotorua and takes about 7 minutes to drive to the CBD. It rates quite a bit above where it should but houses of this size are not that common. We only used two of the four bedrooms. Kitchen was well equipped, but we did not do any cooking. Both bathrooms were fully functional. Outside under the carport there are drying lines for clothing. There were towels and blankets hanging on the clotheslines the entire two days we stayed here.

    This is a fantastic family friendly hotel in close proximity to all the attractions in particular Redwoods Forest and the MTB trails. The heated pool and spas are always a hit and the kids love the play room. The bike storage locker is a definite draw. The food is fresh and tasty - we treated ourselves to room service and the service was very timely.

    Nice clean spacious room. We booked this room specifically for the balcony which a lot of other Hotels do not have in Rotorua. The Spa was great and cleaned after every use.Great location within walking distance to a lot of great cafe's and restaurants. Lots of parking outside with a long stay carpark a couple of minutes away.

    My favourite aspects of the Novotel Rotorua are the location and breakfast. Both are ideal I think. The room is good - nothing unusually good for a nice hotel, but good. Everything was there, it all worked and it was clean and tidy.
