A point to consider when you decide to visit is that the average per night stay in Rotorua is two. Having read a number of reviews by visitors, the main complaint is that
they didn't take into account just how much there is to see and do and subsequently ran out of time.
So how many nights are you planning on spending here? I know how hard it is to juggle this when your time in New Zealand is limited but seriously consider at least three nights in Rotorua.
You can easily spend a whole day visiting and learning about the geothermal attractions alone. This is before you even touch on the māori culture and everything else on offer. Hmmm, what to do huh?

"Thank you Karen! I think you site is wonderful. We followed your ideas today for blue lake and green lake, and went to the Landing Cafe first, brilliant we would have missed Lake Tarawera otherwise and it is so beautiful and peaceful." Rosie

"Awesome website all about Rotorua. Well done Karen Shelford." Amiria Tomoana - Global Traveller
"Yes, really worthwile information for those visiting Rotorua. Take it from someone who used it. Thank you, so much easier." Karen Hubbard - Sydney, Australia
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
