2 nights at this luxury B&B in Rotorua were wonderful. Guest lounge and bedroom beautifully furnished in the highest quality. Owners Colleen and Murray always on hand for a chat and advice and the double act preparing cooked breakfasts each morning worked extremely well! Cannot recommend highly enough.

The Springs is everything you could expect from a high class B & B. Situated outside the main conurbation of Rotorua it is a little far to walk to the restaurants in the town centre but only 5 minutes drive and there are nearer eateries. One thing you always need to be aware of in Rotorua is that the smell... More

Thank you so much for your kind review. It is much appreciated. We too enjoyed our chats and all the great information about the wine industry.

My husband and I stayed there the last night of our three week trip to Australia and New Zealand. What a lovely place. THe room and bath were comfy, (ditto the bed) and there was a small patio with roses blooming outside our room. Great breakfasts too. The best part was our hosts who were friendly and helpful Top marks!

Our hosts Colleen and Murray give wonderful New Zealand hospitality, and it is just like having a home to stay in. The rooms are very comfortable and everywhere is beautifully appointed. Good recommendations received for places to visit, and restaurants to visit. Excellent breakfast, with nothing too much trouble.

This B and B is so good, the host Colleen and Murray are so friendly and accommodating. The room (Rachel) is very well presented, the bathroom shower is excellent. If you want a quiet relaxing stay in Rotorua I would recommend The Springs. We could leave our car at the Springs and walk to dinner in the city.

After a career in the travel business, Murray designed the building as a B&B, including all the amenities travelers like us would want: extra large closets so we didn't clutter up our room, private access to a lovely garden and a layout that all but eliminates intrusive...
