Dirty and Tired

Bad (2.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on January 10, 2012

Stayed here January 2012, Is the most filthiest hotel I have ever stayed in. No Air conditioning in my room, I asked if the delux room had A/C receptionist said no, later I found fujitsu out door units outside these rooms clearly indicating A/c. The bathroom had mould on the taps, in the grout and Filth in the air vents, all documented with Photos. At $150 per night not good!. The Gym, the hottest room in the hotel! A/c was present but did not work, Rower did not work, Exercycle, did not work. Over all tired and in desperate need of re-furb. Embarassed to be a NZder.

I would recommend steering clear

Unique Quality: Staff where attentive, and did their best

Directions: I don't think you will need directions

I have stayed at Rydges Rotorua many times, i find it Rotorua's best hotel. A very nice hotel to stay when spending time in Rotorua. The rooms a very comfortable, with some of them with spa baths and your very own private balcony with very nice views of Rotorua.

the hotel itself was adequate, clean, ok place to stay... but oh the pool. an amazing pool. if it weren't for that I'd likely look for someplace nicer, overall. not that it wasn't OK, it was, but the pool was a huge bonus.

Unique Quality: the pool was on the top floor, inside, but the windows were open... there were two built in large spas which were attached to the pool but separated by a stone wall... the ledge was barely an inch below water surface, so if you were in the HOT side you could dangle your arms into the pool (cooler but by no means cold) or if you were in the cooler side you could dangle your arms into the HOT side... or even rest your chin on the ledge and let the water lap back and forth. utter bliss.

and even better at 630 AM, no one is awake yet, you have it ALL to yourself so, like a seal, I climbed onto the ledge separating the HOT from the cooler... and fell asleep... the warm water lapping gently around me.
