Great Places To Stay In Rotorua
With the sheer variety of places to stay in Rotorua, how do you choose? Tends to be like a lottery, doesn't it? Let's lessen the odds of you bombing out.
Along with the help of family and friends I've tried to make it painless
as possible by scoping out tips for Rotorua's accommodation sectors. I've researched too by hound-dog sniffing around
websites like TripAdvisor, Bookit, Hostelworld etc. and you might just
find me lurking in the forums chiming in with my two cents worth.
Tell you what, I feel quite a heavy-duty sense of responsibility writing these pages about places to stay in Rotorua. For sure it can totally make or break a trip if the accommodation doesn't live up to expectations and I would so hate to steer you wrong. You know what to do, let me know if that happens (cringe).
If you need any advice about a particular place or want a sounding board, drop me a line. I don't mind at all.

your website is the best resource for planning a trip there that I have
encountered! It answers all of the questions you end up having after
reading other sites, and presents information in such a clear and
concise way. ... wish I'd encountered your site before printing off reams of info that will probably be whittled down to one page. ... hope the local government and tourism people realise what a great asset and ambassador they have in you! :P" Vicky Fairchild - Auckland, New Zealand
