Lyndsay and Graham are very pleasant hosts. Our room was spacious and very comfortable, with a balcony facing the lake. They were helpful (and accurate) with suggestions and evaluations of places to dine and visit. Lyndsay's cooked breakfasts are a real treat, but don't miss her homemade yogurt and granola! The Lodge is located on a pretty lake and morning... More

We enjoyed our 2 nights stay very much and would have liked to stay longer! Lindsay and Graham not only provided a very nice breakfast, but also gave very good advice about restaurants and sightseeing. They even helped to book a helicopter tour to White Island, where the helicopter came to the Lodge to pick the husband up.

We can't say enough about the gracious hospitality extended by Lindsay and Graham.They make you feel at home from the moment you walk in the door. They are a great source of information on what to see, where to eat, etc. They know the area very well and take great pride in making sure you enjoy your stay in Rotorua.... More

We enjoyed our 3 nights stay in The Lakeside Lodge Rotarua very much. Lyndsay and Graham are very hospitable people and made for us every day a beautiful breakfast. The views on the lake were every time surprising and Lyndsay was very helpful to give all the information where to go for interesting and wonderful places.

Staying here was 1 of our favourite places after Taupo. The Views of the trout fishers and Rotorua was fabulous. We stayed 1 night at this lovely lodge, with a helpful family couple. They went above and beyond with refreshments and breakfast, cooking my partner a bacon sandwich (typical Yorkshire man). Spent ages talking over coffee and homemade Carrott cake... More
