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

We stayed at the Hamurana Lodge as part of our honeymoon. From the moment we arrived, Patrick made us feel completely at home, showing us around and telling us all the different things to do in the local area. Our room was huge with a view over the grounds and the lake. The lodge is out of Rotorua which suited... More

Delayed in our review but better late than never! We stayed here for 3 nights in Jan 14 and were blown away by the quiet solitude, the lovely breakfast, and the gorgeous grounds. The Hamurana team could not have been warmer. Upon a simple request of what to do, we recall Joel (?) jumping up to print us off 3-4... More
