First choice of accommodation for the 50th Rotorua Marathon

Central location and spacious rooms make Union Victoria Motel the first choice of accommodation for the 50th Rotorua Marathon.

By Kimberley Gilbert

The prestigious marathon around the picturesque Lake Rotorua returns on May 3 2014 for its special 50th Anniversary and Union Victoria Motel is the ideal accommodation.

The Marathon will start at Government Gardens and heads out through the city, around the back of the lake over the Hamurana hills and see participants wind their way back towards Rotorua.

Union Victoria Motel’s central location means that you will not have to travel far for the race. And a supermarket next door means that you will never run low on supplies.

Union Victoria Motel is off the main road with a quiet location for a peaceful night’s sleep before the big race.

Continental and cooked breakfasts are available on request and delivered to your room, so you can get a great start to the day.

For those looking to unwind after the big race Union Victoria Motel has two mineral pools, an indoor spa pool and a heated outdoor swimming pool, to help ease the aches and pains.

Make sure you book early for this event as it is expected to break the record of the most entries for a marathon in New Zealand.

For the best after marathon entertainment Rotorua Racecourse and Rotorua’s Golf course are close by, as is Rotorua’s Lakefront and boardwalk, with many cafés and restaurants in surrounding areas.

Sky City : Auckland Convention Centre Cost Jumps By A Fifth

SkyCity Entertainment Group, the casino and hotel operator, is in talks with the government on how to fund the increased cost of as much as $130 million to build an international convention centre in downtown Auckland, with further gambling concessions ruled out. The Auckland-based company has increased its estimate to build the centre to between $470 million and $530 million as the construction boom across the country drives up building costs and design changes add to the bill.
