This is a great B&B! Comfortable, ideally located in a quiet neighbourhood with good access along the beach, and great hosts in Ken and Carol. Nothing was too much trouble for them, they helped with tours and local advice, prepared great breakfasts, and even offered us the use of the kitchen to cook our freshly caught trout! Definitely a great destination

There is no better stay in Rotorua. Carol and Ken have made their place a real home from home. The lake really is at the end of the garden and the swimming off the beach was fantastic. We also made use of the kayaks - a real treat to just gently paddle along the lakeshore looking at the wildlife. Ken and Carol have plenty of suggestions about where to eat and what to do locally and Carol's breakfasts were a superb way to start the day. Book and stay - you won't be disappointed!

We travelled with a single friend and had two rooms. We were welcomed with drinks and cake. Nothing was too much trouble for our hosts who made us feel so at home in their beautiful home. Their suggestions for tours were excellent. The views from the house are fabulous and we enjoyed swims in the lake!

We chose the Lake House based on previous reviews from Trip Advisor. We were not disappointed. Ken and Carol are wonderful people. They kept us well fed and helped us with bookings. They made our stay in Rotorua one of the highlights of our two week trip to New Zealand. Our room had a beautiful lake view and we had access to the spa and kayaks.
Although it is outside town, you avoid the sulphur smell and are just a bus ride to the main sites. All our excursions included transportation to the house. We feel that Ken and Carol provide an excellent value plus warmth and friendship.

You’ll receive a very warm welcome from Carol and Ken and their house is in a lovely location overlooking the lake – step out of their garden and you could be swimming in the lake! It’s a little out of town, in a quiet location, which suited us with the added bonus there were no sulphur smells! It would have been up there with our favourite b&bs during our month long tour of both the South and North Islands but we felt it didn’t offer the value for money that our best stays did: eg Crown View (Queenstown), Radfield House (Blenheim) and Morepork (Bay of Islands) – all under $200 for the room per night. Added to which a rather small ensuite with only a curtained shower didn’t properly complement the rest of the lovely accommodation. Perhaps Rotorua is a more expensive place to stay? Regardless of this you’ll still have a very enjoyable stay with an excellent breakfast.
