I only had one night here, but what welcoming hosts Leonie and Paul are - they make you feel right at home . Very comfortable quiet and peaceful accommodation. Sitting out on their deck in the evening with a beer, overlooking a lovely garden and then in the morning a great breakfast in the sun room - excellent. Peter from... More

An excellent and relaxing experience! We had some overseas friends with us who had very little experience of BnB's but they immediately felt at home and loved staying with Leonie and Paul.(we stayed 3 nights.) It also was fun with my French speaking friends being able to have a great conversation with Leonie, who speaks very good French. Breakfasts were... More

Leonie and Paul are a wonderful couple and host. Leonie is a great cook and baker who made delicious and healthy bread and muffin for our breakfast. Despite being full, we simply couldn't resist having another serving of her bake stuffs. She has also shared lots of information on Rotorua, like the town's best restaurant/cafe, secret places to visit that... More

We made a last-minute switch to this B&B after looking at many, many options in and around Rotorua .. and we're super glad we did! We were a little concerned at first by how few people had reviewed Aroden, but please don't let that scare you away ... this is a wonderful place to stay! First, the hosts ... Paul... More

Leonie and Paul were perfect hosts. The house is beautiful and full of character. Set just on the edge of Rotorua in a quiet area - 30 min nice walk into town (see the free hot mud pits on the way!). Lovely garden, good breakfast. Nice bedroom with all facilities and large comfortable bed. On our second night Leonie took... More

My husband and I stayed 6 nights here and loved it. We wanted someplace quiet and this was perfect. Just a block or so from the redwood forest, and though close to the little airport we never heard a plane, and saw one only once. It is a suburban home but with their lovely gardens all you see is lush... More

My husband and I have travelled for over 30 years all over the world. The Aroden B&B is one of our most enjoyable accomodations. The owners, Paul and Leonie, are the main reason for this rave review. They went out of their way to make our stay wonderful. Their recommendations on things to do in the area were invaluable. Their... More
