We visited in the off season (August) but the staff could not have been nicer or more attentive. It a great base if you want something more upscale than the motels and chain hotels in Rotorua. And the property offers beautiful views of the lake and a tranquil hideout

Whenever I travel, I always check out hotels on Tripadvisor. This place was #1, and now that I have stayed here 2 nights, I can see why it is so highly ranked. The staff bent over backward to do whatever was asked of them. They provided great service with a big smile. Our room had a nice view of the... More

Hamurana Lodge is a wonderful place. We stayed for 2 nights in June and truly enjoyed our stay. The breakfast is excellent and the staff welcoming. There were only 2 couples on the night's that we stayed and it was very private. It is located a bit out of town and away from restaurants. They have a cold plate option... More

Kia Ora and thank you very much for your review and suggestions. We are happy to hear that you loved the breakfast, the smell of freshly baked croissants lingers in the breakfast room every morning. Many guests like to appreciate our distance from town as the sulfur smells never travels this far, yet we are still pretty handy to a... More

My Partner and I spent Queens Birthday weekend at Hamurana Lodge and loved every minute of it. The grounds were amazing, the lodge itself was grand, and our room was fantastic. I applaud Patrick and his staff for their warm welcoming manner which added the final finesse to a lovely weekend.

Grounds are amazing, rooms are beautiful with character and yet modern comforts. Clean, comfortable. Feels like you are staying at a friend's beautiful home. The BEST part of all was the amazing staff. Everyone was kind, helpful and friendly. Patrick gave us fantastic suggestions about ways to plan our time there. Breakfast was outstanding. Fabulous experience.

Hamurana Lodge is a lovely boutique hotel slightly removed from town. We arrived after our long flight from the U.S. and subsequent 2 hour drive to find a very welcoming manager in Patrick. He met us outside on the stairs, carried our luggage, offered us a cool drink and showed us to our well-appointed room and had a lovely view... More

Kia Ora Lisa, it's great to hear from you! Rotorua has a lot to offer, from geothermal landscapes, Maori culture, to adrenaline activities, the list goes on and on. However this city is often overlooked by many travelers. My goal is to find the right sights and the right activities for our guests and I'm very happy to hear that... More

What a lovely stay for just one night at this beautiful lodge - greeted at the drive, had bags carried to my room, a beautiful share mezze platter, lovely room, heated floors - can't wait to stay here again for leisure rather than business.
