Disappointed in the quality. The 4-star rating was misleading. After staying at the Distinction Hotel in Rotorua, this one was by far the poorer cousin. The rate was to include breakfast, but when we got there, only two of us were allowed to eat and I had to pay for two more. Why would you book for four people and only allow two to eat??? Then they tried to charge me for breakfast again the following day. Won’t be staying again! It put me off the Distinction chain.
