Hamurana Lodge is a great place to stay at! We spent two nights there during Christmas on our journey through NZ. Probably the nicest staff we've ever experienced. They were genuinely friendly and created a warm and welcoming atmosphere for our family of 6. The breakfast was excellent and the free to play pool table in the bar area was... More

An easy ten minute drive from Rotorua town, the Lodge is artfully hidden from the highway by a wall and thicket hedge. The driveway meanders through a manicured landscape until we reached the Lodge where we were greeted by name by the manager who was awaiting us at the covered entrance. From that moment on we felt as though we... More

The Lodge is a 10 minute drive from downtown Rotorua. So long as you are ok with not being within walking distance of restaurants, this is a great place to stay. It was like a quaint bed and breakfast, but you didn't have to worry about over-socializing with all the guests. My teenage boys got a kick out of feeding... More

Patrick and his team were fantastic and looked after our every need. We had the dinner platter and we would strongly recommend this after a day touring. The breakfast could have had a little better food (no artisan bread, limited fruit and cooked options) but it was sufficient. Surprisingly, few rooms were occupied when we were there presumably as a... More

A wonderful experience through and through. The lodge is located in a beautiful spot by the lake a little outside Rotorua. Loved the decoration and attention to detail. Great service; there are only a few rooms so the staff gives very individual attention to the guests. The dinner platter was impressive and the breakfast showcased some of the best croissants...

Hamurana Lodge was a very quaint lodge. They offered a little continental breakfast and had a small gym that met our needs. It was a little outside Rotorua which we liked. It was a very nice stay overall. Their concierges were very helpful with planning activities as well.

We were greeted and made to feel welcome by Patrick as soon as we pulled up outside. Our luggage was whisked to our room and our car parked. The service and attention was of an extremely high standard. It made our visit special. Our room was large and well appointed and spotlessly clean. Dinner was exceptional - a giant platter... More
