Ibis Rotorua! Had a great stay. Best part was the location of the hotel. Scenic rooms, comfortable checkin and good service. You can roam around the hotel where you can find everything. Many options of restaurants with almost every type of cuisine. Ample space for parking too.

Perfectly in the city center.good breakfast buffet, nice staff. The museums are a couple blocks away. Lots of close restaurants and the cable car was fun! Go up to the top and visit Zealandia. Also, if you’re there on a Thursday night, the street market food was fantastic!

Is there a washing machine/ dryer at hotel? Thankyou
There absolutely is. $4 per wash and $4 per dry using two dollar coins only which you can get from reception at any time. Washing powder is dispensed automatically in the machines so no need to buy your own. Each cycle takes 30-40 minutes. Sorry for the late reply.
