Rotorua hotels rate among the best in New Zealand on Tripadvisor

Rotorua – 27 January 2017:

Two Rotorua accommodation providers have taken out their categories in the 2017 TripAdvisor Travellers’ Choice Awards, with a number of others ranked amongst the best in the country.

Quest Rotorua Central has been declared the best hotel in New Zealand, with Arista of Rotorua named the best family hotel in the country and Cedarwood Lakeside Motel ranked second in the family category. Sport of Kings Hotel also featured in the top 10 lists as the sixth best hotel in New Zealand for service.

Quest Rotorua Central owners Colin and Lisa MacPhee opened the hotel four years ago after careers working in luxury accommodation providers, including Huka Lodge and Cape Kidnappers.

“The team at Quest Rotorua Central are extremely proud of such a placing on the world’s largest travel site,” says Mr MacPhee. “All staff are dedicated to a customer first approach in all that we do which is recognised by our guests.”

"It is a great honour to attain such an accolade on TripAdvisor and we appreciate the positive feedback received from our guests in recognition for the quality of service and product offering we have at Quest Rotorua Central.”

TripAdvisor, the world’s largest travel planning and booking site, determines its Traveller’s Choice Winners based on millions of reviews and opinions collected in a single year from TripAdvisor travellers worldwide. Remarkable service, quality and value are all hallmarks of these awards.

“Websites like TripAdvisor have become a key tool in the decision making process for modern travellers,” says Destination Rotorua chief executive Michelle Templer. “They provide an open forum where a visitor can share their experience which in turn can have a huge impact for that business.”

“Rotorua is fortunate to have a large number of quality accommodation options and passionate people working in this industry and it is fantastic that these outstanding Rotorua accommodation providers have been recognised for their excellence.”

Other Rotorua accommodation providers to be listed include; Regal Palms 5 Star Resort (24 for Best Hotel), Mokoia Downs Estate (11 for B&Bs), B&B @ the Redwoods (23 for B&Bs), Silver Fern Hotel (13 for Luxury), Treetops Lodge (25 for Luxury) and Accolade Lodge Motel (17 for Bargains).
