Very nice place, very clean and owners are very accommodating. Vast space for our dog to run around. Location is great, not too close to the hustle and bustle of the city but near enough to the places you need to go. We know where we will be staying next time we are in Rotorua.

Very clean, comfortable and friendly. Located on the main road North out of Rotirua, so really handy if you want to get away up to Tauranga or Hamilton etc., in the morning. Just the ticket. Thanks Chris and Fiona.

If you have kids under 10 and you would like time to yourself - this is the place. As soon as you drive round the back to the accommodation, the two princes saw the playground.. we never really saw them again. Tunnels, trees, slides, flying foxes, a boat, a car, chickens. They played for hours, completely safely. The more kids... More

Pet friendly accomodation is hard to find at the best of times. Discovering Hideaway Lodge was a real bonus. Fiona and Chris have gone out of their way to create a safe, quiet environment for dog lovers, right down to fenced runs, and the complimentary poop bags by the gate to the expansive grassy field which is available for pets...

Stayed here in early March. I am so bad with names but the nice lady who took our reservation also checked us in. I think she said that she and her husband just took over the place and they spent the last 2 weeks getting the place spruced up. And spruced up they did. Our room was very clean and... More

We were only going to stay one night but we enjoyed the tranquility of the place and stayed another. Our grandson loved the swings and the animals and was up playing with them very early in the morning. The owners were very friendly and even gave us a discount when we said we would like to stay another night. Recommend... More

What a little gem of a place! We had a lovely time here. The owners are very friendly and helpful, Fiona in particular was lovely and such a good hostess. We hired two units both of which were well equipped, clean and comfortable. Outside areas are great and the facilities second to none! Would definitely recommend this place. Dog friendly... More

The entrance to this nice place is easy to miss along busy highway 5 and even though the traffic zips by close to the facilities, it doesn't feel at all rushed or noisy. It is a very charming and homey place. The grounds contain a large and wonderful home-made playground, a little golf course, quirky/funny sculptures and a resident flock... More

If your into golf and are a champion this is the place to stay. Many a swing was performed with a great play ground, with tunnel experience and a 20m canopy tour to wind down after a long days golfing. The "carbbq" is a hot thrill and rooms clean and tidy. Everything you need for a successful golfing holiday. Loads... More

We arrived in Rotorua unprepared and after ruling out a few of the more budget accommodation options we were pleasantly surprised to discover this hidden gem located on the main road leading into town. Despite being located right off the main road as soon as you drive in there is a surprising transition into a very private facility which has... More
