Summer is nearly over or is it? The drought has given us all the opportunity to be outdoors swimming, riding, walking and having barbecues. We like everyone feel for the farmers, the lawn mowing people and everyone else who have their businesses affected. In Rotorua we have recently felt a few drops of H2O on the roof and would like to see more.
Fortunately for us in Rotorua we have a great water supply coming from underground springs. The lack of water has decreased the bubbling mud and geyser activity and we need more precipitation to fill the ground water table for these Rotorua attractions to perform at their best again.
A great February in Rotorua with many events being held, the best and biggest being Te Matatini the Kapa Haka National competition hotly contested by groups from across New Zealand. Translated 'Kapa' means 'to stand in a line' and 'Haka' means 'to dance'.
Road works continue on Lake Road, the main arterial into Rotorua City centre from Auckland. There is a new shopping centre near to the Redwoods on the corner of Te Ngae and Tarawera Roads. The Police Station seems to be making slow progress but no doubt will be finished by next summer.
At Palm Court we have recently had a Qualmark assessment and are now rated 4 Plus up from the 4 Star rating we have been for the past 13 years. This is an excellent result for us and we intend to keep the standard up.
Feed back on trip Advisor is increasingly an important item for business success. People do like to shop after reading other peoples comments. We ask politely that if you haven't already done so, and have stayed at Palm Court, would you please bounce on the Trip advisor icon on the Home page and tell the world about us.
