My tour operator offered me a hotel right in the center of Rotorua. I asked, as it would be summer, if it had a pool. No was the answer. So I chose the Holiday Inn. AWESOME decision! I cannot recommend this place enough. It is away from traffic, people and the smelly lake. It is quiet, you are treated like a true guest and they have the best swimming pool in the entire world. OK, maybe not in the entire world, but one of the 2 best I have ever swum in. The hotel actually borders the Whakarewarewa Geothermal Reserve and this amazing place heat the swimming pool and 2 spa pools (Jacuzzis). Ste in some gardens with good sun loungers, you can swim in the very warm swimming pool 24 hours a day. I mean warm like bathtub warm! And the spa pools are very hot and wonderful. Just go to the bar and they will pour your beer of cocktail into a plastic glass so you can sip and soak. AWESOME.

The rooms are not the biggest in the world, but they are modern and functional. The important thing is that the beds are very comfortable, the hotel is quiet and the mini-bar is cold. You can also make a coffee or tea in your room to get your mornings started.

Another awesome plus is the 2 guest laundries. With American sized washers and dryers you can do you laundry cheaply. Just $2 NZ per load and free detergent. I dried my clothes in the room and by the pool!

The bar is good, the buffet is ok and the à la carte menu is award winning. You can walk next door to a geothermal village and get close up to the boiling springs. There is a petrol garage around the corner so you can go and explore the region. If you want to have a meal and drink(s) in town, the shuttle will take you there and/or bring you back.

A superior choice. You can have as little or as much of ‘Rota-Vegas’ as you want!
