    Honestly...everything. We had just got married and the Staff were great - really made us feel kind of special :-) We found the resteraunts really good and the food was fantastic - the breakfast being a real highlight! We found it great that the price for the suite had the breakfast and dinner included as we didn't have to worry about meals. Very enjoyable stay and would definately do it again ourselves and recommend the Distinction to others. All the best Karen & Glenn Anderson.

    The staff were very helpful & welcoming. Enjoyed the full buffet breakfast. Family package including the buffet breakfast is a " value for money" deal. Spa,pool and the Gym added to the enjoyment and relaxation. I will certainly stay at Distinction during my next trip to Rotorua. Also I will recommend it to any of my friends/relations.

    We joined the buffet breakfast at 8am, and wished there were more danish pastries/muffins. Our children said this time the hot chocolate sachets were missing??

    The staff were very nice and helpful and good to talk too

    we had a 3 course dinner at the Pavillion. My husband and myself both found that the Garlic bread entree was very dry, and the steak was extremely chewy and not very enjoyable. The dessert was nice although it was not made onsite.

    We like the solid, traditional nature of the hotel - wood panelling etc. It is a change from all the slick, modern hotels.

    We found the breakfast a little too busy with so many Asian bus groups. We would prefer a more relaxed environment without being jostled at every turn.

    Good

    The room 410 was good standard and well serviced.

    Dining at Pavilion Restaurant Sat pm. It was not well supervised The main course food (although good in itself) was served on cold plates and therefore food was cold. The service was inadequate. A new waitress was badly trained and did not give proper attention to us as her customers.She did not know her menu , did not offer wine service and did not approach us for enquiry as to satisfaction,or further orders such as desserts and coffee. The restaurant was not busy at the time so that was not an excuse.

    To follow up on your things, you suppose to. We asked reception for bath towels, this was not sent, until we rang them the next day again. our sons toy fell somewhere on the floor, while searching for this, we moved the beds to find the toy, there was lots of dust and dirt below the beds, they do not vacuum below the beds. The glass cups has lipstick stains from previous guests that used the room One word disgussting
