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

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

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
