Thank you so much Leonie & Paul, for being the perfect B&B hosts that you are. You truly made us feel totally at home, like visiting long lost relatives! Our room was perfect, and, of course, the breakfast was fantastic. The location of the property is great, within walking distance to the beautiful Redwood forest, and an easy 5 min... More

Leonie and Paul have a nice and warm place. They made us feel comfortable from the very beginning. The location is excellent as it is quiet and 5 minutes driving from the city centre. The breakfast is amazing. Leonie offered us so many tasty options of warm dishes (i.e. pancakes, french toast, scrambled eggs, ...), pâtisserie, fruit, breads and muesli.... More

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 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
