The Princes Gate Hotel is a very unique property built in 1897, combining luxury and excellent value in one of Rotorua's finest central locations overlooking the world famous Government Gardens.

This Rotorua boutique hotel was purchased in 1986 with one goal and objective in mind. That was to establish the Princes Gate Hotel as 'New Zealand's Leading Boutique Hotel' offering facilities and a style that would make the Hotel not only an accommodation house excelling in hospitality, but a property that would become an attraction and identity of its own.

The Princes Gate Hotel stands for personalised service, creativity with a high emphasis on style, professional service and personality.

When other Hotels are becoming more and more alike, there is one Hotel that is maintaining its distinctiveness. The most important room in any Hotel is the one you sleep in. The Princes Gate Hotel is proud of its accomodation of 50 tastefully furnished rooms.

Whichever room you choose, it will be beautifully appointed, with remote-controlled television, radio, hairdryer and direct dial telephone. The sumptuous ensuite bathrooms have baths, showers, and a range of personal toiletries.

This is a beautifully appointed property and the ultimate for the discerning traveller, both international and domestic, who enjoy luxury facilities and personalised service.

We offer:
-Restaurant and Bar
-Street café
-Plunge pool
-Thermally heated pool
-Sauna
-Wireless internet is now also available free in the lobby and bar areas.
-Secured parking for $10.00 per day.


This Rotorua boutique hotel is ideally situated only 500 metres from the city centre and just 10 minutes drive from the airport.

  • Although i haven't yet stayed in this hotel, i can tell that the staff are wonderful and sensitive already. After booking this we had a sudden death in the family which meant that we could not stay on the date arranged, i rang the hotel as a courtesy to say we could not make it, and the very next day the manager/owner kindly offered us another date to stay. Considering the circumstances, he need not have offered this at all, but because of his kindness we will still get to experience this wonderful place. Thank you jan bedford. 5

  • Good location. Grand old victorian building. Staff at desk varied in welcome with what i suspect is the male owner showing least interest. Rooms decorated old style. Shower poor toilet flush part-broken. Facilities generally run down and old. Bed bouncy. No free internet in bedrooms!!!! access to roms via balcony is quaint. Breakfast 'ok' ; cooked food a bit greasy and terrible piazza d'oro coffee favoured by large hotel chains (excellent rotorua roasteries bypassed) hotpools are not mineral and changing areas very basic but free towels. Overpriced and i think living on its past but still romantic and main halls etc attractive but this is not a luxury hotel. 5

  • Dear guest, I would like to apologise that we did not meet your expectations. Our genuine motivation comes from our guests satisfaction. We have been back to the room you stayed in and yes the toilet button was not working properly and has now been fixed. The shower also, while having excellent pressure, did need a cleaning of the jets for better flow which has also now been done. We would like to thank-you for your positive comments on our great location and the hotel being a charming character building. In regard to the pools, like with all hotel pools they are thermally heated water which is dark green giving the impression that they are dirty. Our internet is free throughout our lobby, bar and restaurant areas while there is a small fee for room use. This is fairly standard among most hotels. Coffee is of course very much a personal preference and the product we use is of high quality and gets much complimentary feedback from most guests. Our mattresses throughout are all new and again comes down to personal preference in regard to how firm/soft guests like their beds. In regard to our facilities being run down, we do not accept this at all. All our furnishings, building and outdoor areas are all brand new, or recently refurbished. In fact we have spent close to $200k over the last few months on property renovations including around $50k on the pool area alone. We have a fantastic property, it looks great and is of the hoghest standard. Once again, thank-you for your feedback. Kind regards, Brett Marvelly - Owner
