Hotel Ibis + Novotel locations

by mscrabtree

What I'm wondering is, how close (or far) are those two hotels from the Intercity/Newmans coach stop - in terms of walking distance?

I've seen some location maps but they all seem different, which is basically confusing me.

An answer would be greatly appreciated.

Heya...I can't find Newman coaches on the net, but the Ibis/Novotel that are right next to one another are in Darling Harbour...very central in the city, so you'd have a short walk/cab ride to anywhere these coaches are located. Many pick up at the casino - 100metres from your hotel if they are.

Happy travels!

Rotorua City Centre is very small, these two hotels are very central, and to be honest, maybe 5 mins from the bus station.

The Novotel is especially close.

I hope you enjoy Rotorua. I just came back from 4 days of Spas.

Travel Tips for Rotorua

Information Centre

by Kate-Me

By night, the Visitor Information Centre lights up beautifully, and by day of course you can go there to find out about all the activities and places to visit in the region...the extreme sports, all the geothermal's an extremely well equipped Information Centre with good facilities. It's also quite an interesting building and decorative on the inside too.

Waitomo Glowworm Caves

by keeweechic

The caves have been in existence for more than 100 years and attracting people from all over the world. You can take a guided tour through the limestone cave and a boat ride through the Glowworm Grotto where these tiny insects glow in the dark and reflect off the water deep under the ground. The acoustics in the Cathedral cave is astounding. Stalactites, stalagmites and sculptures have formed as a result of water dripping from the roof of the caves or flowing over the exposed limestone walls. There are well laid out tracks through the native bush that surround the caves as well.

The caves are east of Rotorua - about 153kms (93 miles).

Fantastic evening's entertainment

by J_P_B

We had a top night doing this - an amusing bus ride being given the meaning of Kia Ora in 40 odd languages, with the coy picking of a tribal chief for our bus (it's not as bad as it sounds... quite a straight forward thing to do and they give you a gift as a momento of the evening, if you are not too shy, do volunteer) preceeded the traditional tribal greeting. This was followed by a demonstration of pre-European Maori village life, then a show of Maori song, dance and instruments. We then had a hangi (traditional Maori BBQ), which was delicious. After a final farewell we were bus-ed back to our hotels. It may seem a little commercial, but I have to say, at times I was quite moved and it definitely gave me a good insight into Mauri culture. I can strongly recommend it.

Some waterfall !

by 36waterfalls

There are some lovely pathways from the Buried Village valley upwards into the mountain. Some stairs to climb, but after enjoying Te Wairere Falls and the cool of the native bush, you end up on a look-out overseeing the whole area, including Lake Tarawera and the Mount inself. Put on your hiking shoes and have a great time!

The Buried Village

by allikat

In 1886, Mount Tarawera erupted, and in doing so completely obliterated the village of Te Wairoa and the "Eighth Wonder of the World" ~ the Pink and White Terraces.

Nothing remains of the Terraces, tiers of natural hot springs, but the remnants of the village and hotel now form one of Rotoruas most famous attractions.

The story of this catastrophic eruption, in which over 150 Maori and Pakeha (Europeans) were killed, is told in the museum and by the tour guides - several of whom are direct descendants of the original Maori guides of the Terraces. As you wander through what is now a really tranquil place, you can see the excavations and reconstructions of several 'whares' (dwellings), a stone storehouse and a blacksmiths workshop, as well as the old hotel (including its cellar where full bottles of whiskey were excavated!).
