Overall Property is safe and tidy. 1 thing we did not like is the staff / reception desk at Atlas Cafe. the way she ask question is a bit rude. we did not come there to eat free breakfast, WE PAID FOR IT!. she should ask a bit politely. staff in Reception are all friendly and accommodating.

This property is right in the middle of Rotorua's good side. Next to Eat Street and as a bonus there is free onsite parking. The rooms are fairly spacious if not a little on the old side. One issue, which is unique to Rotorua is that the plumbing looks to need attention, the shower head in our room was pathetic and not being able to remove the shower head to rinse was an issue for my daughter with long thick hair! 1st world problems I know but I think if the minerals could be cleaned from the shower head it would have been better.
