My wife Christine and I drove down from Aukland to be met by Lynsey and Graham with tea and home made cakes and a view through the lounge window across the lake that knocked our socks off . Their garden gently slopes down to the lake and we watched as anglers pulled enormous fish from the water . Our hosts... More

We were warmly greeted and treated like family, no probably better. . . . . more like long lost friends! The owners, Lindsey and Graham, saw to our every need. They arranged a wonderful 31/2 hour bike tour of Rotorua and the Lake,including mud pots and geysers, with Roger the owner guide of Happy Ewe Cycle Tours (highly recommend) They... More

Stayed here for 2 nights while travelling south from Auckland. We were welcomed warmly by Lyndsey and Graham who gave us a lovely cup of tea with delicious homemade cake before we unpacked. This was very welcome after our journey! Given the short time we were staying in the area, our hosts suggested not only places to visit but places... More

Breakfasts were a delight and the home made muesli mmmmm lovely A fisherman's dream location - fishing available 50yds away - you can watch them jumping from your balcony.

During our trip to NZ we found a place to stay in the neighborhood of Rotorua. Caring hosts, giving advice for places to visit. A nice bedroom with terrace, free wifi and a little fridge in the room. They prepared a great breakfast and at the end of the day, coming home we drank a beer together with them. We... More

Don't be fooled by the approach to this wonderful bed and breakfast. You drive past a rail yard and down a couple of suburban streets. When you get to the Lakeside Lodge you find an absolute waterfront property with a panoramic view over Lake Rotorua. It is about a 10 minute drive from Rotorua itself. You need a car but... More

We stayed in the 2BR apartment, which is not part of the Bed & Breakfast. The apartment is self-contained. It was spotlessly clean. Lyndsay and Graham provided extras beyond what you would expect in this type of accommodation: extensive breakfast foods--yoghurt, mini-cereals, bread, and cheese, in addition to the usual milk, tea, and coffee; a huge bathroom with two sinks;...
