We just loved this place. It is a former private residence turned boutique hotel. The service is just amazing. They clearly saw us driving up the long driveway and were waiting for us outside. Showed us to our rooms without being intrusive, recommended some activities for us while we were in Rotorua and booked a tour for us. Nothing was too much trouble. The breakfast was lovely with warm croissants baked on site. They'd asked us the evening before what time we thought we would be up for breakfast so that they could be available fresh and hot! The room was really lovely. If you're looking for modern, chic you won't find it ihere. It was more cottagey but clearly at the top end. While the bathrooms are a bit dated they included L'Occitane toiletries, had great water pressure and a good quality hairdryer (I hate it when you get those little travel ones!) and they were very clean and perfectly fine - you have to go here knowing that if you want want 5 star slick and bland then this isn't the place for you. The bedroom was really quite large with a beautiful view out over their grounds and the lake. It was really stunning. There was a nespresso machine in our room as well as other little touches that made it really nice. The grounds are lovely and we enjoyed walking around and petting the menagerie of animals which included the donkey, goat, pigs, chickens and an old lab called Sunny who happily ambled along behind you in hope of getting a scratch behind the ears! This place is really special. The staff are wonderful, the service is the best I've ever had anywhere and it is a quietly serene place that makes a fabulous get away.
