My wife and I very much enjoyed our stay at the Robertson House. John is the perfect host and was a joy to get to know. He did a spectacular job restoring this historical home. Our room and huge bathroom was very comfortable. All the intricate details of the period were very well done and a treat. Can't say enough... More

My family of three (two adults and college student) recently had the pleasure of staying at Robertson House on a trip from the US. With beautiful rooms and lots of attention to detail, it was a wonderful experience - we just wish we had more time to stay longer. John is an incredible host who goes above and beyond to... More

This is a charming place, full of character. The rooms are lovely and spacious and clean. Nice quiet location, only a 10 to 15 minute walk into the centre. Our host John was really welcoming and friend lolly and gave us lots of suggestions for things to do. Breakfast was great too - lovely choice of sliced breads.

The moment we arrived we loved the look and feel of the Colonial house oozing with character - it is very welcoming and picturesque and has been lovingly restored retaining many original features. Our room was clean, big and airy and the large bathroom was the original conservatory with stained glass windows. It is a good place to relax. John... More

Robertson House has a genuine colonial feel to it with original wooden floors and ceilings but excellent decor gives it a light and airy feel. 5 mins driveand 30 mins walk from centre of Rotorua. Very helpful and informative host.

We were given a great welcome by John who made us a cup of tea with cake which we enjoyed on our veranda and then John asked what we liked to do, which was walking, he made some great recommendations to us based on this. The house is a beautiful period building which has been wonderfully restored and we felt... More

Robertson House is a charming house in Rotorua. It is really close to the main attractions of the city and our room and bathroom were huge and confortable. But the best part of it, as most of the reviews have told, was John, the host. He is one of the nicest people we have met in NZ. He gave us... More

Robertson house is a property of real character which happens to be run by a real character too! John is a charming, helpful host who makes his guests feel really welcome. The house dates back to about 1880 and is the New Zealand equivalent of a listed building. Our room opened on to a delightful balcony. The furnishings were in... More

We had read the glowing reviews of the Robertson House on TripAdvisor before our visit to New Zealand, so we knew we were in for a treat. It certainly didn't disappoint. John is the consummate host, helpful and friendly. We enjoyed our down time in Rotorua, sitting in the lounge with him, just chatting like old friends. Our room and... More
