Rydges Rotorua formerly known as Holiday Inn Rotorua 4 stars

Hotel in Rotorua

Located on the edge of Redwoods forest and overlooking the famous Whakarewarewa Geothermal Reserve and Historical Village, Rydges Rotorua features a purpose-built mountain bike and adventure equipment... Amazing views of geothermal springs and redwood forests from room. Lovely warm swimming pool and hot jacuzzis. Friendly helpful staff and a nice bar area to relax in. Room was spacious and extremely comfortable, my best sleep in weeks. Located very near springs and hiking trails, a bit far out of town but loved being near the trails.

Novotel Rotorua Lakeside 4 stars

Hotel in Rotorua

Centrally located on the shores of Lake Rotorua, Novotel Rotorua Lakeside features a restaurant, a fitness centre, a geothermal spa and hot pools. We had a very enjoyable stay and found the private pools very relaxing. I had a faint at our table during our dinner in the dining room on Tuesday night (must have been related to migraine) and the staff were outstanding calling the ambulance and suppling an icepack and checking in the morning. Grateful thanks for their kindness.

Distinction Hotel Rotorua 4 stars

Hotel in Rotorua

The Distinction Hotel in Rotorua is only 500 metres from to the famous Whakarewarewa Thermal Reserve. This 4-star hotel offers 3 restaurants, a bar, heated spa pools and a fitness centre. I asked the front desk staff for help several times and they were great, very helpful. My friends who were were also staying booked their room for the following month accidentally :) and the staff worked really hard and quickly to get a room that had to have air con repaired, fixed and available - they went above and beyond. Myself and a friend ran the Tarawera Ultramarathon so comfort was needed, and the rooms were extremely comfortable.

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.
