    Novotel Rotorua
    Nice two night stay here. Very clean and modern hotel. Lake front location next to the top of the city. Easy to walk to restaurants and shops. Simple check-in with friendly and helpful staff. We had a city view room with two doubles for the three of us. Room was immaculate with comfy beds. Nice pool area with pool, jacuzzi and thermal pools. Pool not massive but fine for our stay. Good sized gym area with ample equipment. Great breakfast with loads of choice. Friendly staff yet again. Checkout was easy and we given a jar of sweets for our onward journey. Would book again.
