We stayed here for only one night wished it had been more. Our host was John, who was friendly and helpful. The house had been restored beautifully with very idividual rooms and bathrooms. Location was good, we wish we could have stayed longer.

The highlight of our visit to Rotorua was staying in Robertson House and enjoying the company of our charming host, John, and Loki, his very special dog. The house has been lovingly restored to provide beautiful period rooms with great bathrooms. It was a wonderful contrast to the very modern centre of Rotorua, but close enough to walk to restaurants... More

We stayed here during our honeymoon in New Zealand and we do not regret it. The rooms are large, the beds are extremely comfortable and the shower is great. The B & B is ideally located near to Rotorua and its outside tourist attractions. John is an extremely welcoming host who is happy to give you tips about what to... More

Although we saw many interesting things in Rotorua, the real highlight was Robertson House. The house was beautiful and John the host was the friendliest person I think I've ever met. Just a short walk into town and in a quiet spot. Highly recommended.
