Spent three nights at this wonderful B & B in late February this year. Mick and Theresa are fantastic hosts and made us feel so welcome. Freshly baked cakes on arrival, baked goodies left in our room for a yummy treat on returning from sightseeing and the most wonderful breakfasts with so many good things on offer. The accommodation is... More

Mick and Teresa know hospitality. These people are as sweet, kind, and thoughtful as you can get. Oh, and amazing chefs! Upon arrival, we were served a plateful of freshly baked treats. This was just the beginning. Then, there were freshly baked scones left in our room. And don't even get me started on breakfast! Oh the breakfast. Teresa and... More

We stayed two nights during our honeymoon. The place is the best of both worlds: farm-like setting and peaceful while also within easy reach of the town. They have donkeys, sheep, a dance room, a playroom for kids, GREAT breakfast, etc. The best part however is the hospitality. Mick and Teresa are the most helpful B&B hosts that we have... More

After reading all the great reviews, I was excited for our stay at the B&B and Mick and Theresa did not disappoint. There were freshly baked cookies waiting for us upon arrival and then a tour of the (gorgeous) grounds. While the room itself (we stayed in the two-bedroom "suite") was nothing spectacular, it was clean, tastefully appointed and served... More

This B & B was a welcome surprise for three weary travellers. We arrived quite late in the evening and after a warm welcome were directed to a very nice restaurant for dinner in Rotorua, a 15 minute drive. The accommodations were impeccably clean, spacious, tastefully decorated and the beds were super comfortable. Breakfast was a veritable feast comprised of... More

My parents and I stayed in the two-bedroom suite for 3 nights. Our experience was comfortable and pleasant. When we arrived, the house was well-prepared with everything in the rooms clean and tidy. There are plenty of things to explore around the beautiful house including a small movie theatre (party room), a pool, a sunlight room (might be more enjoyable... More

Set in a tranquil rural area just minutes away from Rotorua, this B & B offers cosy and comfortable accommodation with a casually luxurious feel. The additional attraction of two donkeys, some ducks, some chickens, and two cute little guinea pigs guarantees its appeal to children. There's a swimming pool, a children's playroom, and a pond. The spacious grounds surround... More

In February 2014 we flew from England and spent the most delightful time in one of the most friendly and hospitable B and Bs's that we have ever stayed in. From the very first contact with Mick and Teresa they went out of there way to make sure that we had the holiday of our lifetime . They were extremely... More

Imagine designing the perfect B & B - what would you include? It almost goes without saying that it should be comfortable, tastefully decorated, and located in, or near, somewhere interesting and beautiful. Similarly, your hosts would obviously have the right level of friendliness - affable and relaxed but able to judge when to give guests a bit of space.... More

We visited Mokoia Downs early in January. What a special spot and it is made even better by Mick and Teresa who welcomed us into their home. I was a bit nervous taking my teenage sons (17 & 14) to stay in a B&B for the first time. I needn't have worried. Right from the start when we were given... More
