Xe stop for 2 nights at Ngongotaha lakeside Lodge. We had such a great and warm welcome from Lyndsay & Graham. The B&B is along the lakeside with a beautiful view and colors, not too far from Rotorua for diners and visiting.They gave us advices of the main things to visit around. We had a really great time there and... More

We stayed two nights at Lakeside Lodge and everything was perfect from start to finish. Lindsey and Graham are delightful, so helpful and friendly. They gave us help with planning our day so that we could see everything we wanted to. The Lakeside Lodge is in a wonderful location overlooking the lake and our room was extremely comfortable. The breakfasts... More

We have just returned from our third visit to Lakeside Lodge. We could not think of visiting New Zealand without going there as we have been made so welcome in the past. Cannot think of anything more Lindsay & Graham could do to make their guests more welcome or comfortable and the situation and setting of the Lodge is so... More

We had a few nights fantastic nights at Lyndsey and Graham's home. They are an extremely friendly couple and really easy to talk to. Lyndsey is a fantastic cook and makes her breakfasts from scratch. Our room had an amazing view of the lake when it was overcast during our stay. Our hosts were also extremely knowledgeable of the area... More

similar to other reviews I would say the same - don't stay in town, stay here! wonderful location and only minutes out of the centre. so peaceful and with wonderful views from the lake view room with a balcony (try and get that room). Lyndsay's breakfasts are wonderful (also the very welcome home made cake with afternoon tea) and they... More

The best place to stay in the Rotorua area... Directly on Lake Rotorua, with sunrises out the bedroom or dining room windows. Hosts Lindsay and Graham were so welcoming and friendly during our stay. Graham is an avid fly fisherman, who can take you stream fishing. We chose to boat fish on the lake, just a short distance from the... More

Short review because I'm doing it on my iPhone and it's very fiddly using those small keys!!! We booked in for two nights and wish it had been more, Lyndsey and Graham are a great couple and looked after us like we were old friends rather than paying guests. Don't plan anywhere for lunch if you stay here, one of... More

Lindsay and Graham were extremely welcoming and genuinely lovely people. The property is well maintained and the cabin it's self was clean spacious and comfortable. The cabin is set apart from the main lodge offering the perfect amount of privacy. We spent 3 nights in the cabin with the majority of our days spent out and about doing an assortment... More

First of all this is not a lodge in the country, which is what you might think from the pictures. It is a house on the lake next to other houses (which, in all fairness, also call themselves lodges.) When we arrived they showed us a bedroom in the house. When we expressed deep disappointment about an ordinary room at... More
