Rotorua Lakeside

At a Glance


  • on the lake you might snag a room with a view
  • the Matariki Concert Hall is right alongside


  • they're a bit aloof and you won't get the same friendly service as at a B&B

Rotorua Lakeside Review

This snazzy spot has the handiest position of any of the large downtown hotels—it overlooks the lake and is a two-minute walk from the restaurants and shops. Guest rooms have sleek furnishings and are decently sized, though you should specify a lake view when booking. At the Atlas Restaurant ($$$–$$$$)the menu is built around fresh local produce.
