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 in Rotorua...Wingspan National Bird of Prey Centre was definitely a highlight for us and a must visit ...also Waimangu Volcanic Valley was fantastic...need to have a car to get there but only about half an hour from Parkside Boutique Lodge

    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.

    2 or 3 day stay is enough to see the most interesting sights. One of the hot pools is definitely worth a visit, probably Polynesian as they are the staple (or Wai Ariki but that's more expensive). We also loved the gondola and a buffet dinner on top of the hill in the Stratosphere restaurant. One of the maori villages is also a must, we did Whakarewarewa which was informative and the cultural dance was great to see. Waimangu valley is great.

    This beautiful town has a wealth of things to do, sights to see and the people are friendly and engaging. Lots of things to interest most if not everyone. Ranging from adventure activities, to beautiful sights, thermal pools and spas to relax in and cultural/historical enrichment around every corner. A real treat

    So much to do!

    So much to do! It's become the Queenstown of the north island - lots of adventure activities. We did spend a fair bit of money, but we also had a great time, they just need some more good quality restaurants, and better coffee in the township - the best we found was out in the suburbs. I loved our time there, especially the mountain biking - so fun. People were all friendly and helpful too. Def a gret place to visit, esp if you have tweens / bigger kids.

    Rotorua was a great place to visit.

    Rotorua was a great place to visit. Mitai Village, Hot beach, waimangu volcano were all interesting places to visit. If you like to hike, the 9 mile hike to hot beach and the hiking trails in the Mokaihaha Ecological area are both great hikes . Just don't stay at AWA hotel.

    I had a wonderful time at VR Rotorua Lake Resort. The hotel is located on the shores of the beautiful Lake Rotoiti, which offers stunning views and a relaxing atmosphere. The room was spacious, clean, and comfortable, with a private balcony overlooking the lake. I loved the deep bath, the luxury amenities. The staff were friendly and helpful, and the restaurant served delicious food with a variety of options. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone looking for scenic and comfortable accommodation in Rotorua.

    Very nice hotel at honest price. We were very happy. Large room. Strong air con. Good wifi. Everything clean and good repair. Great breakfast buffet with cappuccino machines. Excellent location on the lake. Guest laundry is all free washer, dryer, and soap. Great opportunity to catch up with dirty clothes. Rotorua is an amazing area with lots to see. We had 5 nights here and could have spent a week or more without running out of activities.

    Beautiful property in a gorgeous setting with fantastic staff. The property was quite new and had good intentions but still needed to work out a few kinks. Loved the property, art works and grounds. So beautiful. There is an opportunity for the hotel to offer guests to see the gorgeous stars in the sky but the front area is so brightly lit that it’s hard to see the stars. Perhaps they could set an area for guests to enjoy it comfortably?

    With all of the publicity over Fenton Street I was worried that we might be exposed to what we’d seen on TV being close to Fenton St. There was no need for worry, it was lovely and quiet. This shower had the best water pressure that we’ve come across and we’ve stayed at many hotels and motels. Staff were so accommodating they gave us options to rectify a problem and took their time with our problem despite being very busy

    This place was great... We had a large family room with two beds on a mezzanine level.. It was very clean, spacious, and well equipped. It's in a good location and had free parking for our rental car. The big hot tub in the room was awesome. It was great to relax in after a tiring day out. I preferred this place to most of the 5 star city hotels I've been in recently. I'd certainly go back and am happy to recommend it.

    I stayed at a lot of hotels during my month in New Zealand, but this was the nicest! Cozy, comfortable, quiet! So close to the redwoods and the treewalk, which is utterly wonderful day or night. Super convenient to Rotorua city center, but not close enough to be constantly smelling sulfur :) Vivien was a great host with lots of advice and helpful guidance. Plus she's just a joy to talk to over breakfast.

Shoutout to Chloe and Poppy who helped with early checkin, calling airport for lost water bottle, booking canopy tour, suggesting restaurants for vegetarians… they were so friendly and helpful. 5 stars and beyond!!

    Would like to say that I stayed at this motel because of the spa room located at the back of the room. There are a lot of more expensive/modern/up to date motels/hotels in Rotorua without this facility which means if you want a spa you have to leave your expensive motel and go pay for a soak in a spa down the road. Also within easy walking distance of everything you need at the city centre.
