There is no doubt in my mind that Rotorua is one of the very top New Zealand Vacation Spots, not least because of the Geysers, but if you visit, then there is only one place to stay, and that is Peppers on the Point, the highest quality accommodation available in Rotorua.
You come upon it quite unexpectedly at the end of a quiet cul de sac, and you suddenly realise as the view opens up to you, quite what a beautiful place it is to be. Staying here at peppers is such a pleasure, and it is so convenient for Rotorua, and just far enough away from the pervading smell of sulphur!!
It is surrounded on three sides by Lake Rotorua, quite the most stunning location, with wonderful panoramic views from almost every room in the hotel.
The food in the restaurant is quite superb in a country not noted for its cuisine!!
It really is one of the very top New Zealand vacation spots, because not only has the restaurant a very good reputation, but also the wine cellar!. If you want to fish then the hotel has its own private beach so you can fly fish to your heart's content.
If you want pampering then you can have a spa, and massage in quite the nicest facility. Rotorua is certainly spa country, and if you are energetic, and it is summer time, then there are also water sports off the beach, tennis, and boating. All this is only 10 minutes from the geysers of Rotorua.
The whole experience is more like staying in someone's home than an hotel. If you are taking a New Zealand vacation, and you want to find the best quality Rotorua accommodation, then don't look beyond Peppers on the Point
