Romance in Rotorua

Prince's Gate Hotel

Built in 1897 and beautifully restored, Prince’s Gate – located just a stone’s throw from the famous Government Gardens and the lakeside – offers a variety of indoor and outdoor areas for both ceremony and celebration.

The hotel offers its 50 bedrooms and suites, guest lounge, function rooms and poolside courtyard for any kind of wedding, while the breathtaking kauri staircase complete with sparkling chandelier is the perfect spot for brides to make their dream descent or as the backdrop to photos.

A Rotorua experience wouldn’t be complete without some time soaking in a hot pool, and all hotel guests also have access to Prince’s Gate’s three thermally heated pools, as well as a private hot pool and sauna – whether it’s to soothe those pre-wedding nerves or ease away aches after a night of dancing.

Dining is a delight with menu options to cater for all budgets, from buffets and canapes to set menus, all freshly made and using the best locally sourced ingredients.

Prince’s Gate also offers a dedicated wedding coordinator and can also organise everything from flowers and photographers to celebrants, sound equipment and live entertainment.
