Rotorua accommodation

Rotorua has a wide range of accommodation options to suit all budgets and travel styles.

Accommodation in and around Rotorua does fill up over race week so please book and confirm your accommodation prior to arriving.

The event hub is located at the Village Green (Lakeside Drive) in the heart of Rotorua, so most central hotels and motels will be within walking distance of all of the action.

Our preferred accommodation provider is the Novotel Rotorua Lakeside Hotel, which is located directly opposite the event hub.
