A warm welcome has always been guaranteed at Distinction Rotorua Hotel, but that welcome just became more distinguished with the recent transformation of the 4 star hotel’s reception and lobby.

Rich, diamond buttoned velvet sofas and ottomans with a botanical vibe envelop the lobby and are an inviting treat for arriving guests after a long day of travelling.

The elegant lobby adorned with opulent chairs, accompanied by granite and oak tables finished in aged brass and decorative accents is the perfect informal area to meet up with friends and colleagues, before heading to the any of the hotel’s three popular restaurants or bar.

A walkway from the lobby flanked by native NZ pongas and ferns leads guests to the hotel’s heated outdoor swimming pool, Jacuzzi and recently upgraded private underground grotto spas.

In addition to this lobby transformation, work continues on refurbishments to the tower block wing of hotel rooms. With 32 completed to date, guests will be treated to luxury beds synonymous with those highly rated at Distinction Dunedin Hotel, plush carpet, comfortable armchairs and a work desk, flat screen televisions with SKY channels and free unlimited WiFi. Individually controlled heat pumps/air conditioning will also be installed for the comfort of guests.
