Customer review rating 2.0/5

Ian G. Couples - 13/10/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

We found the room design very confronting. Even after 23 years of marriage we found the experience spoiled by the room design. Having the shower and toilet in the room without another door was very awkward and made using these facilities unpleasant. Having to listen to someone using the toilet is unacceptable in any hotel. There was nowhere to hang your towel. The table and chairs were far too close to the TV. Design over practicality is a bad design. The staff were lovely and very professional, but we would not return again. We would go to a motel with a separate bedroom and bathroom

Dear Mr G., Thank you for taking the time to tell us about your experience at the Pullman Rotorua.

Great short break

Customer review rating 4.5/5

Jonathan Families - 03/10/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

Nice return to the Pullman, with an awesome location and lovely rooms. The two bugbears remain - $25/night for valet parking is a bit on the nose when it is for an outside park beside the hotel (parking seems to have been something not thought about at all in the hotel design) and no towel rails when accor encourages reuse of towels is a bit incongruous. Friendly and helpful staff, great dining.

Nicky Families - 29/09/2021 Confirmed reviews ALL

Thoroughly enjoyed my stay, but I have to say that I wouldn't come again based purely on the bathroom setup. A complete lack of privacy which I found disconcerting. I mentioned this at the time to the receptionist. Bed was fabulous Coffee maker was fabulous Service was fabulous It seems a real pity that I wouldn't come back based on a bathroom layout, but I prefer doing my ablutions in private.

Dear Nicky R., Thank you for taking the time to tell us about your experience at the Pullman Rotorua. We appreciate you sharing your concerns regarding the bathroom layout and have passed this on to our management team. We thank you for your positive remarks though and will also pass them on to our team. Kind regards, Emily Lakin-Grant Guest Service Agent

We had a good stay at Pullman. Service was great, and the room was great s had everything you needed. The only thing I would consider for next time would be extra or firmer pillows. The restaurant food was decent, I think we expected a bit more. Service made up for that though, staff were great.

Our 2nd stay at the Pullman. Very comfortable and very welcoming and helpful staff. Our only concern was that the "background" music was not and could make conversations sometime difficult to hear!

MGA1600 Business - 19/08/2021 TripAdvisor review

This Pullman has a high standard of service, well appointed rooms and extremely well located (with excellent lake views from my room 509). The only disappointment was the lack of an executive lounge or cocktail service (which I enjoyed greatly on my previous visit)

We love staying at this hotel as it well presented, The staff are absolutely fabulous from housekeeping to waitress and the front desk, they always make us feel so welcome. It is so close to most attractions and walking distance to the polynesian pools. We have another booking for latter this month.
