Loved Rotorua, the Paddle Boat was great. Food was really nice, well worth the money. And was very happy with Malfroy Motel, Ron the owner couldnt do enough for us, very clean and pretty garden. We will definately be back and stay at Malfroy again. the negative side we could have stayed another week. Would love to go on the Paddle Boat again. Loved Rotorua, was my favourite place.

We took the breakfast cruise and what a great start to our day. The crew were great from welcoming us aboard through to our departure back at the wharf. Breakfast was well prepared and presented and would have catered for any dietary needs. The cruise was very pleasant with a good commentary.

The cruise was lovely and staff were very welcoming and friendly but the food was average....it was cold and it had been sitting for a while. Would still highly recommend it though it was a lovely way to start the day.

Loved the experience, the food was great, my wife is a vegetarian and she had plenty to eat. Perhaps a savoury could be provided but this is not necessary as there was plenty. Was a bit disappointed there was not very much history of the lake given during the sail. Otherwise I would recommend this to all of my friends.

I enjoyed our breakfast cruise. I wouldn't say there was anything to actually see, it was just about cruising on the lake. An hour is really a perfect amount of time. I thought the staff were especially nice.

3 star rating: Worth doing

We enjoyed this trip with lunch but it would have been better if it had gone on for longer. An hour is not long enough to see the lake as you would like to.

What a great idea, such a shame about the food. Breakfast was just awful. With better quality food especially for the price this would have been a fabulous morning.

We travelled to Rotorua from Hamilton as part of a work team day especially to go on the Boat Cruise and have lunch.
We were disappointed that the cruise lasted exactly an hour with very poor commentary on the surrounding landmarks.
The food was below average - an uninviting mix of foods.
Definately not worth the $55 per person (once the booking fee was add) even though the booking was done as a group. Would not be recommending to anyone else.
