“Outstanding views,service,food and rooms.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2009

We stayed here for just one night on the recommendation of a friend and it was became the highlight of our trip round North Island. Our room was beautifully furnished and decorated and spotlessly clean. The house is on top of a hill beside Lake Rotorua and the views from the lovely garden were wide-reaching and magnificent. Christine's hospitality was second to none, she's a very talented woman and an excellent cook. We chose to have dinner there (booked in advance) and enjoyed a very New Zealand meal of roast lamb with lots of fresh vegetables. Delicious! We can't recommend this place highly enough.
