A prominent showpiece in the heart of Rotorua. Originally built in the gold mining town of Waihi, in 1917 nail by nail and board by board, the hotel was dismantled and transferred by horse-drawn wagon to the Waihi Railway Station and the timber and fittings were duly taken by rail to Rotorua. It is now sited opposite the entrance to the stunning Government Gardens. A visit to the Princes Gate Hotel is an exciting escape back in time.
The hotel has fifty rooms of various sizes and each room has an ensuite bathroom with a traditional selection of toiletries, a mini bar, refrigerator, tea and coffee making facilities and Sky television on a flat screen, luxurious bathrobes, iron and ironing board, telephone and Wi-Fi. All guests have access to the three thermally heated pools, a private hot pool and sauna. Guest laundry facilities are also available.
Eat in the hotel restaurant or alfresco in the Inner Courtyard or on the street-side Veranda.
What our travellers love about staying here:
- Eating or enjoying a glass of wine, taking in the view from the hotel veranda
- The hotel interiors redolent of another age with stylish works of art on most of the feature walls
- Pleasant walks through the nearby Government Gardens
