Sudima Hotel Lake Rotorua
4.1/574 Reviews

Sudima Hotel Lake Rotorua

Rotorua|0.77km from city centre
I stayed in the Sudima Lake Rotorua Hotel for three nights while attending a conference. The Sudima was selected as it was the cheapest of the four listed by the conference organisers. The accommodation and buffet breakfasts were standard and wouldn’t in themselves warrant a review, either positive or negative. What did warrant a review, however, was the check-in experience. This is the reason for the level-two rating. Having stayed at a range of accommodation – from higher end to backpacker - I cannot recall anything like it, either here in New Zealand or overseas. There was one person at the reception desk and only one other guest checking-in before me. That check-in took a seemingly interminable time, but that can happen for whatever reason. My check-in appeared normal, but thereafter the experience ‘went to custard’. Assigned a room on the third floor I duly went with my bag to the room. Arriving there the magnetic door card wouldn’t open the door. I then returned to the reception desk, explained the situation and was provided with a new set of door cards. I then proceeded back to the third floor and, yes, the door cards this time successfully opened the door. However, upon entering the room I was surprised to find evidence that someone else was using the room. Material around the room showed that this person was also a conference attendee. (Interestingly there was a half drunk bottle of whisky on a table, but alas it was a blend and not a single malt so there was no temptation to take a few swigs.) Using the room’s telephone, I called the reception number but there was no response. Anxious that the room’s inhabitant may return I returned once more to the reception desk to be provided with a new room and corresponding door cards. Another ascent to the third floor finally eventuated with valid room occupancy at the Sudima Lake Rotorua Hotel. The time lapse since first entering the hotel stretched to about 40 minutes.

The positives first: The hotel is not terrible. It was not our first choice, but we ended up booking here, as well as booking our friends we were meeting here and another couple joined us for one night and paid for a room. We alerted the manager and he put us all on the the same floor, with a lake view. The room was clean. A little tight on space, but this is not a negative. Staff were friendly. The negatives: NO HOT WATER!! We stayed for 4 nights. One person out of 6 had a hot shower, as he showered just after we arrived. That was the last hot shower. The water was progressively colder, each day. And it was the whole hotel. This was the topic of conversation with every other hotel guest we happened to meet in the lift. We complained, every day. At each stage, we were told they were... waiting for someone to turn up...the problem was fixed but because everyone kept using the water it could not warm up...the problem was not fixed, they were waiting for someone from somewhere else. I think they had no idea and I did feel sorry for the staff, but a hot shower is absolutely a basic requirement. At no stage was there a note slipped under the door to apologise and ask us to bear with them. It was incredibly frustrating. It seems petty after this to mention the bathrooms also need a bit of care and smell very mildewy, but if it were not for the hot water issue, this would have been my main complaint. The last thing to mention, it rained the whole time we were there and the Ibis has no lounge area. We ended up sitting in one of the rooms, as a group, having a natter, like high schoolers. This is more of a Rotorua problem, though, as Rotorua seemed to shut down early and there was no where to just chat, in the evenings. Ibis Rotorua is not somewhere we will stay again.

The hotel is very nice and I want to come to the second time. Location is close to the lake, downtown, shopping malls are very convenient to eat. The hotel is motel style and the car is conveniently located at the door. The facilities in the room are complete, the tableware is complete, and the stove is full of fire to make Chinese food. The bed is comfortable to sleep, moderately soft and hard. There is a heated swimming pool, and the water temperature is roughly 32 degrees in the summer at 28 degrees. The hot spring pool has a strong smell of sulfur, which is much more authentic than the hot springs in the country. It is just a simple environment, one pool and one room, two in total. The hotel rents bicycles for free and is also very good value. New Zealand bicycles are planned to have a dedicated road, which is another way to visit in addition to hiking. The hotel staff is very nice and welcoming. There are also some shortcomings. Because of the hot springs, the air has a sulphur smell. But it didn't take long to stay, but it was very comfortable to ask, which was good for rhinitis and pharyngitis. The room is a little smaller. There is only one window on the ground floor where we live. The ventilation is slightly worse. The actual stay for three days is not serious. It is still under the premise of cooking in the room. In short, the hotel feels the owner's intentions and intimacy everywhere, even if it is in the hotel, it will not be boring. I also forgot that one important thing is that TV provides Netfix, and foreign hotels that have lived in the past few years have not provided it for free. More than 700 prices are very good value.

Cosy Cottage Thermal Holiday Park
3.8/558 Reviews
Just left staying at this campground in 2 units, one with bathroom 1 without with 3 kids 2 adults. Very happy all round. Clean, tidy units beds comfy. The pool was exceptionally good on hot days for all. I looked around at the camping kitchen and toilet facility's all very clean tidy and well equipped for tenting and camper vans (I will be back for camping for sure for any of their options to stay). Walk to Lake very close, very handy to the township and other tourist Hotspot. Very friendly receptionist. ... felt definately a cozy camp ground with people coming and going. Will be back thank you
Lakes Lodge Okataina
4.1/515 Reviews
The lake view room is very good, the sparsely populated water is very clear, suitable for emptying. When it rains, the lake is dark, and the sky is blue without filters when the sun is out.
Kuirau Park Motor Lodge
3/566 Reviews
The motel is located in the city center and is convenient for travel. The boss was very enthusiastic and introduced a lot of useful information. Thank you again!
Astray Motel
3.8/513 Reviews
When I went there was a Chinese receptionist. I don’t know if the boss is Chinese, so the communication is very smooth. A typical motel, the room is simple but enough, it is very close to the parking lot, and the sound insulation is average. If you don’t sleep well, please think twice or prepare earplugs. The location is very good on the main street of Rotorua, not far from the government garden and Polynesian hot springs. If you drive, the parking spaces in the courtyard are limited and you may not be able to park. The parking spaces are full and you can stop on the street. It is recommended that the boss prepare a check-out key box. This can be checked out quickly without ringing the bell every time you go to the front desk
Blue Lake Top 10 Holiday Park
4.3/551 Reviews
Many people come to the Blue Lake in RVs and yachts. Needless to say, the scenery of the Blue Lake is so beautiful. Sitting by the lake relaxes your teeth and scalp. The resort has separate toilets and shared toilets/bathrooms. Mostly locals come for water sports and swimming/camping, very few Chinese tourists. It is recommended to bring a swimming ring or surfboard from January to March. There are no restaurants around, so we brought instant noodles and tomatoes on our backs. After eating a few days later, we took a 10-minute taxi to the Landing Cafe next to Terawera Lake to eat. The beach was very lively on a sunny day, filled with children and adults with dogs🐶 Come and play in the water. The lake is crystal clear and opposite is a volcano. You can talk to local people with yachts and let them drive to the hot water beach at the foot of the volcano for a hot spring♨️.
Rotorua Thermal Holiday Park
3.9/5104 Reviews
It is a motorhome and campground. It seems to be very popular in New Zealand. When you arrive at a holiday, the family rents a RV and runs around. The scattered spots are few people, so you can only play like this. There is a public kitchen with tableware, but it is less than the seasonings. Bathing is going to go all the way to the open air, and the hot springs are also. The hot springs are not bad, it feels like the door to hell, but of course there is no such landscape. In fact, the door to hell is just a good place to go shopping, so the meaning of the bubble is not so big.
