Our room was spacious, with a separate space for cases and hanging. Each room has a little garden area- it is delightful. Home cooked breakfasts are cooked to... More

We were delighted with our welcome by Colleen and Murray when we arrived at the Springs. It is a lovely home in a residential neighborhood that was originally built as a B&B. Thus the common rooms and bedrooms are nicely placed and extremely well furnished. It was like coming to a friend's house for a visit. Our hosts greeted us... More

Rotorua is not best known for it's hotels so when you next visit don't go past The Springs Luxury B&B. Murray and Colleen Ward exemplify what this country is so good at; genuine hospitality. The rooms are very comfortable. I was attending a conference in Rotorua, Murray dropped me into town each day after one of Colleen's divine breakfasts. In... More

Only two nights but we will always remember them. It was the end of the season and the only other "guests" were Colleen and Murray's daughter and her partner. We were made to feel part of the family and had a wonderful time. Colleen's buttermilk pancakes have to be experienced - they are exquisite! There were no tea and coffee... More

I wish all B&Bs were this lovely. Colleen and Murray are complete professionals, and the attention they give to every aspect of running the B&B makes staying there a pleasure. I would return without hesitation. Colleen's recommendations about restaurants and local attractions were spot on. Thanks for a wonderful stay!
