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

Dear Philip J. Thanks for the stunning review. It was a delight to know you had a great time here in Rotorua for your conference. The town was very busy, but was looking beautiful for the occasion.

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!

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

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.
