We enjoyed two days at Clover Downs while on a motorcycle tour of New Zealand, and only regret we couldn't stay longer. The location is perfect, away from the bustle of Rotorua, but close enough for easy access when you want it. The setting was marvelous, and the hosts were completely engaging.

Just spent two nights here and now we are homesick, Sharon and Mike were perfect hosts for us--knowledgeable of the area and attractions, totally available and willing to leave us on our own.

We returned to the Clover Downs Estate after two years and happy to say although few things changed we still loved it. New owners Mike and Sharon changed the decoration and gave it a new touch which is very modern. They were very welcoming. This time we did not take the farm tour but enjoyed a longer sleep which is... More

We had a wonderful 3 night stay with our wonderful hosts.As a family of 4, we were allocated 2 of the 4 suites at Clover Downs - both of which were separated from the main part of the house by a dividing door (which gave everyone privacy, but the ability to go in and have a chat if you wanted)...

We stayed at Clover Downs Estate during our quick trip to New Zealand in February, 2012. We couldn't have received a warmer welcome. Our room, the Governor's room was wonderfully spacious and comfortable. It included a very comfortable bed and pillows, a double couch seating area with large t.v. and a very handy desk looking out at the beautiful countryside... More
