Great tasting vegetarian food. Choice of cream of tomato soup or Veg. Manchow. Both are very tasty, veg.Manchow is a bit spicy. Honey Chilly potato, dal fry and plain rice to share. Naan bread + main course each. Palak paneer (main) was a winner, even my 7year old daughter loved it. Vegetable fried rice that we ordered as an extra for my son was very nice. Banquette dishes are smaller size, but it should be expected with so many for 2 people. Don't forget a desert each! Great service! Relaxing atmosphere

Great ride through the Redwood forest. The high quality Focus eMTB’s are the best way to experience as many trails as possible. The ride is tailored to your riding ability. Thijs proved a great guide and also provided us with photos of our ride. I would definitely recommend this tour

Joe took us out to the Redwoods with a couple of E-Mountain Bikes and it was wonderful. We're both beginner mountainbikers and we were guided through the different trails, levelling up as we progressed. We covered so many trails, it was amazing. I had a small accident, leaving me with a bruise and torn pants. Our guide was with me within one minute with a first aid kit, and even drove us to the nearby mall to get some new pants so we could continue. Epic service!

Good fun and some very interesting facts on the area. The lakes are beautiful such a shame Lake Rotorua is closed but its good for the lake to get healthy again. Matt was full of jokes and laughs. Highly recommend for NZders to do things while we can enjoy our country and not have the hustle and bussle of overseas tourists and most importantly help nz companies survive for when the world comes knocking!

We had the pleasure of stopping off here for dinner on the way home from Taupo and was amazed when we walked inside and was shown to an upstairs treehouse type setting! We had it all to ourselves which was even better. The lady who served us was very nice, it was refreshing. The food was divine... A restaurant you have to visit if you are ever in rotorua. The menu is all reasonably priced too which I loved. Will definitely be back. There's more off the menu I want to try! :)

It was our 3rd wedding anniversary and we chose to celebrate it at Pullman Rotorua. Emailed them about it and they gave us a simple sweet treat! That’s awesome! Our hotel package includes 2N Hotel Accommodations, 2 nights Valet Parking and a $100 Voucher for their Resto at the hotel. What a great deal! The staff’s hotel were very accommodating with our requests, the receptionists were very kind and polite. The room’s very clean and the bed and pillows were comfortable as well. We had breakfast and dinner at the Barrel & Co. (which is their resto) and they offered very good and tasty meals. We enjoyed their food so much especially the T-bone steak that we had for dinner. Will definitely stay with Pullman Rotorua again in the future!

Very lovely establishment, friendly, helpful staff. We felt comfortable and the room service was delivered very quickly. Our room was a superior suite which we upgraded to on arrival and offered a lovely in-room double bathtub. Very relaxing and over looked their lovely city and far off landscape. The small fridge did not work in half of the capacity and so our drinks were warm and some cold. Not a big issue for us. The gym had 2 treadmills but one was out of service. No swimming pool here. We had a dining voucher also which was of $200 value. We had to use this in one sitting which at first we thought would be near impossible but decided dinner would be fitting. The Restaurant is bright, servings small and boutique. The cleaners were friendly and concierge service flawless. Overall very happy with our stay. Thank you
