Stayed at this little gem for 2 nights and wish it could have been longer. I was made to feel so welcome by the owners Fiz & Chris. As a single traveler they made me so welcome that they invited me to eat with them, what a nice couple. Very convenient for all the attractions and will be back in... More

We really enjoyed our week in Rotorua in July. This lodge was good value, we stayed in the 2 bedroom accommodation, it was warmed with wood fire with wood always available. Full cooking functions. Ideal for a visit with 2 teenagers, ample space and close to Skyline gondola, mountain biking, horse riding, motorbikes, luge etc. Chris and Fiona are warm... More

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
