Yes, the B & B is on the main drag ( Fairy Springs road sounds so rural!). Yes, the decor is a tad out of date. BUT, Sandi makes up for any and all disparities. I know of no hostess at any B & B that is more determined that your stay with her is the highlight of your trip.... More

Thanks to Sandi we were able to plan a wonderful couple of days in Rotarua. She offered good advice, excellent facilities and a scrumptious breakfast, and then did all our laundry. Wish we'd had a little more time to enjoy her pool.

We saw this accommodation described on Trip Advisor as quirky and it certainly is that. We stayed in the log cabin which is sited in the back garden next to the pool. My wife said it reminded her of the times in her childhood that she spent in a beach hut in Bournemouth, but with much more room. There was... More

Sandi was the perfect host - even before we arrived. Having landed in Auckland late the previous night via Sydney, and our luggage somehow not making our connecting flight (despite a 2 hour delay!) Rotorua airport rang through to Sandi to say that our luggage was there and awaiting collection. This was not good enough for Sandi who insisted they... More

Somehow we were lucky that Sandi had available accommodation for us during the high tourist season. She put us up in the Family Chalet, an upstairs very spacious bedroom with a comfy king (might have been a queen but it felt huge) bed and two single beds (we were just two), apologizing left and right that it was at the...

From the almost immediate response upon making reservations to setting foot and staying in Sandi's Bed & Breakfast, I was 100% impressed! Sandi is the perfect host that any traveller would wish for. Her easygoing manner, friendliness and efficient, thoughtful service leaves no room for complaints. Located 5-7 minutes drive from the city center, Sandi is near enough to visit... More

Sandi was so sweet and thoughtful. She allowed us to use a portacot, brought us amazing mixed fruit bowls as part of a large breakfast at whatever time we were ready, and offered advice on nearby attractions. Our cottage with bed & bath had a nice deck for enjoying breakfast, fast internet, a refrigerator, and a heater to keep the... More

We very much enjoyed staying at "Sandie's Place." She is so cordial and friendly, we were overwhelmed. Even after arriving fairly late in the evening, we were given our choice of rooms. Then when we asked about doing laundry, Sandie insisted that she take care of it for us! And the breakfasts were awesome!

Service and feeling welcome are the main points of staying with Sandy. Just returned from staying at her place on two separate weeks to mountain bike the Redwood forest and hike in the area. Fantastic location and easy to find. Lots of good restaurants in the area. Was able to do my wash and leave luggage with Sandy. Comes highly... More

Eccentrically decorated outside, the rooms were just fine on the inside. Sandi was a delight and willing to help in any way she could with directions and suggestions for seeing Rotorua. She brought breakfast every morning to the room where a toaster, fridge, and hot pot were provided. There was cereal, a lovely fresh fruit salad, yogurt, whole meal bread,... More
