              Very poor in all ways

              The friendliness of the staff.

              I was attending the Lions Convention and the hotel catered for the food. I was not impressed. I had buffet dinner on Friday, lunch on Saturday and "Banquet Dinner" on Saturday night and I have to say that the quality of the food was very poor. For a convention of this type I would not recommend this hotel. However I did not experience the food in the restaurant, which could have been a lot better.

              Staff were pleasant & helpful. On site Japanese restaurant was very authentic and tasty food! Breakfast buffet was well stocked for European and Asian tastebuds. Room was of a comfortable size and was probably last refurbished 5-7yrs ago. Little to nil road noise in our room.

            • Couple
              7.8

              Spa Pools, good Service (light bulb broken in room, fixed in 30 min. ), good food options in hotel, very good explained

              silikon joints in bathroom looked moldy, lighting around pool area filled with flies (guess thats normal around that time of the year in rotorua)

            • Couple
              7.8

              We stayed at the Distinction Hotel Rotorua almost 2 years ago and it was so nice to see Victor still working there. It goes to show how much the good quality staff enjoy working at the Distinction. I love the entry, the room (marble bath, 2 luxurious Queen sized beds and comfy pillows, This place is full of suprises and I just love wondering around not knowing what you will find next (Kowhai Restaurant, Pavilion Restaurant, Mr Yakitoris Bar, Cave Spa - best facilities by far). The Maori Staff there are super-friendly and helpful. We felt we were being looked after (not ignored or harassed) and that the staff are genuinely pleased to see us. They go out of their way to help and made me feel at home :)

              Maybe better air-conditioning was a bit too hot for us?? This place is Rotorua's best kept luxury accommodation secret. I am reluctant to spread the word in case it becomes so popular, I miss out on a room next time! Overall, I am still very impressed with value for money your hotel offers and we definitely look forward to seeing you on our next visit to Rotorua :)

            • Couple
              9.6

              We loved everything, gym, spa, pool, breakfast. It was one of the most luxurious hotels i have ever stayed in

              It was a little hot in our room with the windows open and the fan on but we still enjoyed it soooo much.

            • Family with children
              6.6

              size of the room - big enough for a family of 4

              the room was too hot. Second time room was next to road - too noisy

            • Family with children
              8.2

              We loved Mr Yakatori Restaurant. The beds and pillows were extremely confortable, probably the best I have ever slept in in a Hotel. The rooms warm & quiet and no air conditioner going. The Front Desk staff vwere very polite and friendly.

              The Housekeeping staff were a little under par. We had to ask three times for extra pillows to be brought to our room. We had very noisy "Netball" girls on our 3rd Floor, noise up until 3.30am. The Sauna was not working properly, only half the bars heat up. We also asked for Bath Robes, but there were not any available. Maybe you need to purchase more?

              I like the food it was soo soo good

              No one actually informed me of my package messed it all up and then told me I wasn't suppose to drink the wine as my complimentary bottle as it was the wrong one all so the spa could do with some for of ventilation and the locks to be working

              1.The cleaning need to be improved, we saw a rubbish beside the chair when we get into the room. 2. The breakfast is same as 3 years ago, we want to see some differences next time :) Thanks Jerry

              We enjoyed ourselves incalculably. Distinction customer service was superb. The whole staff from reception, room service to the dining area staff were amicably cheerful and respectful. The facilities were excellent and the family room was even better.

            • Family with children
              6.2

              The breakfast buffet was horrible. My family members are curious about the origin of the food. All the food seemed over the expiry date. Almost nothing to eat except fried eggs. I should have chosen other hotel.
