Looking for a place to stay in Rotorua?
Looking for visitor only accommodation? Rotorua has many top-quality accommodation options for our visitors. All accommodation providers listed within this site accept visitor bookings only; they do not take any type of emergency housing or mixed-use bookings. We welcome you to book directly with these preferred accommodation providers.
Alternatively, you're welcome to seek advice and book your Rotorua accommodation through our friendly travel experts at either of our Rotorua i-SITE Visitor Information Centres who provide a 100% money back guarantee if your accommodation is not as they promise.
Nature lovers, base yourself in luxury lodges nestled alongside one of Rotorua’s 18 lakes or within a 2,500-hectare native forest. There are also numerous holiday homes that take advantage of amazing locations and views and can accommodate two to 20 guests.
Experience genuine Kiwi manaakitanga (hospitality) during your stay at a bed and breakfast or boutique retreat where your hosts are always happy to divulge the location of their secret fishing spots and recommend their favourite eating and drinking establishments. For something more secluded, try glamping in a 1930s shepherd’s hut; in countryside yurts overlooking lush forests and rolling hills; near a natural hot water beach; or in a unique off-grid escape for two consisting of three pods connected by a walkway with no signs of civilisation in sight.
If you prefer to base yourself within walking distance of Rotorua attractions, shopping and eateries, make your home-away-from-home in a self-contained city apartment, a 5-star hotel, boutique hotel, Rotorua’s only dog-friendly hotel, or family-friendly accommodation with space for kids to play and swim. From these locations, leave the car behind and grab your walking shoes or bikes to visit the geothermal Kuirau Park and Sulphur Bay Wildlife Refuge, the historic Rotorua Museum and Government Gardens, as well as cafés, restaurants and the famous dining precinct Eat Streat.
Of course, if you enjoy getting back to basics, holiday parks and campgrounds – some with their own hot pools – and a Qualmark Bronze backpackers hostel are located in and around the city and known for their excellent amenities and playgrounds. If you’re looking for family-size accommodation, or wanting to find the ideal base for a reunion, Rotorua has many accommodation options that cater for all ages and accessibility requirements. Opt for family suites, separate or adjoining rooms at a hotel with a pool, gym and other amenities.
Maximise your stay in Rotorua by enjoying a soothing soak in Rotorua’s famous healing thermal waters or a rejuvenating spa treatment or two. You never have to go far for these, and in some instances, you don’t even have to leave your accommodation as a number of providers offer hot pools and spas onsite.
