This was one of our best hotel experiences. Peppers on the Point is magnificently situated on Lake Rotorua and contains a number of guest houses (cottages). We were greeted by Andrew, the facility director, and the welcome was warm. Our cottage was spacious, comfortable and contained all the amenities that one could hope for. The food during our stay was... More

Spent three lovely nights at Peppers on the point. Good spot to base family for touring the area including Hobiton and various others within one hour drive. Peppers is 1920's converted lodge with a lovely aspect over the lake and less smelly (sulphur waft) than Rotorua itself. The rooms are more like mini apartments and are very well presented. Breakfast... More

My family and I stayed in the 2 bedroom cottage near the tennis court. This was classified as fully independent. The accommodation was beautifully appointed although the kitchen was poorly maintained - no full set of anything. We brought it to the attention of management and when they examined the complaint In detail they recognised exactly what we were saying.... More

We visited back in January 2015 and had a wonderful time. The views were great, bed was comfortable and and the food was stellar. It's located in a neighborhood with lots of great running routes in the morning.

Peppers on the point stole money from my husband and me. We stayed there for 4 nights and when we left I noticed I was missing cash out of my wallet! At the airport we took out New Zealand cash from an atm but we also had a few hundred dollars of American cash as well. When we left during... More

Well it's very hard not to get a little upset with this as this is NOT A REVIEW! Sadly these claims are completely unsubstantiated and certainly not true! If this were to happen anywhere why would you not report it to management so the appropriate measures can be taken. We all love Tripadvisor but even they think this is a... More

Our stay at Peppers was fantastic, we arrived later than expected but the staff greeted us by name and treated us as if we were regulars. The views from the grounds were spectacular and the Villa was clean, beautifully decorated and spacious. It was hard dragging ourselves away every day to explore Rotorua and the surrounds. The breakfasts were delicious... More

My husband and I are from Auckland and often come through Rotorua and usually stay at one of the various hotels or motels, which is fine, but we wanted something a little different and a bit more special. Peppers has a lovely tranquility about it. The views are lovely and the surrounds beautiful. But the staff are the best, friendly... More

During a long weekend visit to the North Island, I spent one night here with my wife in early October 2014. Wish it had been for longer. Beautiful little establishment with everything you need and great service. View and facilities are amazing, could not recommend it enough. Cannot wait to come back to New Zealand so we can visit here... More
