This accommodation is of an extremely high standard and is located overlooking the beautiful Lake Okareka which is close to Rotorua and very quiet. we stayed in the suite adjoining the main residence. We had our own entrance and small patio overlooking the lake. The king size bed was extremely comfortable and all furnishings were of a high standard. Having... More

I was brought here as a surprise by my fiancé. As soon as we arrived we were treated by Ken and Patricia made us tea and biscuits (proper tea leaves yay!) the B&B has fantastic views of Lake Okareka - absolutely stunning. The bedrooms have everything you need- tea/coffee, toaster, fridge and a wonderfully comfy bed along with a private... More

The setting, facilities, hospitality and breakfast at Patricia and Kens home B&B are exceptional. Lovely views. Room well appointed and excellent all round. We stayed one night but could happily have stayed longer. Breakfast was superb. Easily accessed from Rotorua and ideal for the local tourist attractions. Don't miss a pre breakfast stroll to the lake.

After spending out first couple of nights of our vacation in a Motel, we decided to shift to B&B accommodation, and we were very happy to find ourselves at Ken and Patricia's. The room was spacious, clean, and well appointed. The view was magnificent. Our hosts gave us excellent advice on how to maximize our stay in Rotorua, and even... More

This B&B is located right next to a lake. It's about 10-15km away from central Rotorua. We chose the place because we wanted to be away from the rotten egg smell that omnipresent inside the city. Being to close to the sulfur made me light headed and I had some vertigo. The small lake is very pretty. The nice sized... More

Couldn't have had better surprise than my stay here. Rotorua was not originally on my list of visiting, but due to the weather condition, I had to change my plan at Tangariro and showed up unprepared at Patricia and Ken's place. Their place is not in Rotorua town center, but that's exactly the kind of location I like. It's located... More

This was the best B&B that we stayed at on our tour of the North Island of New Zealand. The hosts are very friendly and helpful, and the accommodation spacious. Lovely breakfast, but the best thing was the view. Definitely recommended.

This is the place to stay when you want to stay in the thermal region and see all there is to see, but don't want to smell all there is to smell! Patricia and Ken were such warm and welcoming hosts, and our room was very comfortable. We enjoyed the shared breakfast with the other guests as we got to... More
