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.

Colleen and Murray Ward made our stay at The Springs B&B a delight. 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...

The Springs B&B was a fantastic place to stay in a unique thermal area, and we thoroughly enjoyed our time there, which was made even better by our hosts, Colleen and Murray.

Colleen and Murray are very welcoming and enthusiastic hosts - the B&B is very comfortable and we enjoyed our stay there very much. They gave us valuable advice about places to visit and places to eat - local knowledge is always welcome. At one stage we were sat outside in the sun on the patio - another rare thing as... More

We arrived at The Springs after a 7 hour drive from Russell, but Colleen and Murray welcomed us with a glass of wine to revive us. The room was wonderful with a private patio and awning to shield from the hot sun. The Springs is beautifully decorated and the photographs on the wall as you walk down the hall are... More

Thank you so much for a really kind review. It is a long drive from the Bay of Islands so a quiet moment or two in the garden with refreshments does soothe the soul! We love to hear you enjoyed your stay and we certainly hope we get to do it all again. More

Colleen and Murray were the perfect engaging hosts. Despite us arriving at 6pm, they both made us feel immediately at home as we walked from the car and they helped us with our bags. Even though it was at short notice, Colleen kindly booked us in at the local popular Urbano Bistro restaurant, just in time as it was full... More

The Springs really is THE place to stay in Rotorua. We have stayed with Colleen and Murray three times, and every time has been so very special. We are planning trip #4 now; visiting NZ without spending time with Colleen and Murray just doesn’t seem right! The rooms are spotlessly clean and luxurious, as is the whole b&b. The breakfasts...
