After a 10 hour flight +3.5 hours drive, Georgina greeted us with a warm welcome and showed us into the room. Despite the tiredness and the oh-so-comfy bed, Georgina and Alan invited us to go with them to feed the animals (goats,sheeps,chickens,alpacas,pigs) which was one of the highlights of our trip. They also provided boots which were thoughtful of them.... More

They have goats, sheeps and many other animals, the two black dogs are very lovely and friendly, children will love there very much, and i'm sure travellers from China such as me will not miss this chance to take a photo with...

A wonderful stay, in early March. Beautifully situated with glorious views of the lake, very comfortable room and wonderful hosts in Alan and Georgina, who gave us some great tips for things to see and do locally and couldn't have been more helpful or welcoming. And who could resist Bess and Tui, their superb dogs? Our rooms were spacious and... More

I have always wanted to stay at a B&B farmstay and this made all my dreams come true. Not only is the farm itself absolutely wonderful, but the hosts, George and Alan (and Bess and Turi (spelling?) made our stay even more perfect.

Lakeview Heights was a great B&B to spend our time in when at Rotorua. The breakfast was wonderful! Before breakfast we went out with Alan and Georgina to watch and help feed all their animals, like sheep, pigs, alpaca, cows, chickens and goats. Their dogs are very friendly too! Their farm is up on top of a hill just north... More

This is a farmstay - a homestay with a difference - quality, comfort and a warm welcome, not only by hosts George and Alan, but by their delightful animals: sheep, alpacas, goats, pigs, cows, hens and dogs. 'Crafty' George uses the wool from the sheep and alpacas to make her own garments and I was lucky to spot a woollen... More
