Staying at Distinction Rotorua Hotel
The hotel was presented to us as a 4 star by and is was priced as a 4 star. The room did not have air condition. There was a ceiling fan. At night it was so hot that we had a choice to deal with it or open a balcony door. Opening a balcony door came with strret noises of passing traffic at night. On our last morning the room service just opened the door with their key and entered the room hours before our checkout time. The hotel and the room feel dated, assuming this the look they are going for. The room appeared clean. The bathroom could do with a renovation. Comparing to other 4 star hotels we have stayed in we would choose other.

First time stay in this hotel
This hotel has European design for its interior. Breakfast was typical western food with additional plain congee and miso soup. A bonus is the outdoor heated pool which size is quite big. Reception only has 1 staff at all times so if you check in like me, just behind a group of people from the tour, the reception won't give priority unlike other hotels. The tour agent was waiting for payment confirmation with his manager on the phone and the hotel reception could have asked him to stay aside and attended to me - thats not the case! Extended check out was given only for 30 mins. The hotel is located 10mins drive to Te Puia which is a tourist spot. Not much eateries within walking distance.

Good 6.0
It was plesant enough. Staff were not the most helpful and possibly a little direct with accommodation advice. The hitel 215, was rather dusty under the seat of chair and its clear the vacuum cleaner doesn't go inder furniture. With the hotel having such great character to it which is why we booked. It looks a bit and in need of a tidy up. This is a great location, pool was amazing and staff wete great round pool area. Thanks for the experience Gail
