lynda w 19/01/2021 TripAdvisor review

Lovely hotel, ideally located, pools were wonderful (though natural spa pools very hot - but relaxing) Buffett brilliant, beds really comfortable, free parking is always a bonus at a hotel, rooms clean and tidy

Dear Lynda w, Thank you for taking the time to tell us about your experience at the Novotel Rotorua Lakeside. It was a pleasure to welcome you to our hotel. We hope to see you again soon

Well located but clear lack of maintenance

Customer review rating 4.2/5

Jose A. Families - 18/01/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

Location is perfect. Breakfast however is very low quality, mostly canned fruit available nothing fresh, cheap sausages, restaurant is messy at peak time. Facilities are very old, lack of maintenance is pretty evident, our bathroom was mouldy, extract fan not working. Swimming pool not as shown in the photos, it was very tiny and urgently needs an upgrade.

Great location

Hera W. Friends - 18/01/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

Receptionist warm and friendly, no delays and smooth with pre booking via internet. Room comfortable with fantastic towels and facilities. We loved the dinner banquet and variety of selections as well as the breakfast buffet. Having music while dining was an added bonus. Location - access to massage facilities, cafe and walks. So handy.

Phil H. Couples - 18/01/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

Check in prompt efficient and friendly. Opted for buffet meal in evening, well supplied with everything, nice soup, nice seafood and meats. Dessert was an over indulgence. Temperature of some of the buffet dishes could have been slightly warmer, however this didn't detract from the flavour. Comfortable sleep that night. Buffet breakfast, good coffee, great fruit, good hot foods. Day out wandering around Rotorua then back for a swim and then dinner, similar to night one but different foods tried. Another good nights sleep. Breakfast again, lovely poached eggs. Check slightly mucked up, but in general a great time. The really great thing were the young team members were great to interact with, friendly, polite, ready to have a laugh but stay professional

Customer review rating 4.2/5

Janet M. Families - 18/01/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

Helen W. Solo - 18/01/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

Locality was great, food usual for this type of hotel (hot and cold options), employees were helpful and friendly, live music was lovely. HOWEVER, the room I was allocated was dirty - stains on the carpet, stains in the toilets, marks on the wall, stains in the draws, cobwebs on the windows. The only place I felt safe on was the bed! I think it was given the worst room in the hotel. I have stayed before and my experience was very different.
