“Great little B&B”
Reviewed April 24, 2007

This was the first B&B we sampled in New Zealand and it got us off to a great start. We arrived at lunchtime which might have fazed some hosts but not Colleen & Murray who welcomed us warmly and gave us a cup of tea and a cake while we settled in.

Our bedroom was excellent with everything we needed and a door out on to a paved area where we could sit in the sun.

Free tea and coffee was available and a spacious lounge where we could watch TV and relax.

The following day breakfast was good with fruit, cereal and a full cooked breakfast.

I guess the room rate is quite expensive but at the Springs you definitely get a quality service.

Our stay at The Springs was one of the most wonderful experiences, from arrival until departure.
A friend recommended staying there and we could not have been more pleased with our choice.
We were warmly greeted by Colleen and Murray. They are a total delight. Extremely knowledgeable, gracious, warm and fun loving. We felt as though we were visiting old friends.
The lovely port and biscuits in the evening in front of the fireplace and the stupendous breakfasts, not to mention the innumerable small touches in the room ranked this as a complete joy. Colleen even called us at our next stop to make certain that we were enjoying the route and stops that she had mapped out for us.
We only stayed three nights but have another trip planned for this year. We have recommended this property to quite a number of friends and business associates and they have also been extremely pleased.
Thank you again to these terrific people for opening up their "home" to us.

We only stayed here for 2 nights but the memories will last forever.Colleen and Murray made us feel so special. We were welcomed with yummy home made cakes and given all the local information we could want, including which order to visit places to enable us to fit as much as possible into our short stay. Nothing could have improved this beautiful home from home. Oh, and Colleen makes the greatest blueberry pancakes!! A wonderful start to the best holiday we've ever had.Thank you.

Colleen and Murray run a beautiful, modern B&B with wonderful amenities and a fantastic breakfast. We enjoyed every minute in the house and would go back again any time. They are also extremely knowledgeable about the area and offered us many suggestions for touring and eating. I can't rave enough about this great house.

  • Liked — The Hosts and ammenities in the house.
  • Disliked — There was nothing I did not like.
  • Tips/Secrets — Rotorua is a wonderful place to visit, the Yellowstone Park of New Zealand. The Springs is a great base.

We have just visited Colleen and Murray in their beautiful, clean and peaceful home. From the moment we arrived we were warmly welcomed and given help and advice about Rotorua.

Their guest lounge had a lovely warm fire waiting for us to relax and enjoy a complimentary sherry.

When we retired to bed, it had been turned down with a lovely wee chocolate on our pillows. Definately had the personal touch!

At breakfast we were encouraged to try local fruits like yellow kiwi fruit and tamirillo......lovely!

Sorry that we only spent one night there!

Highly recommended

We found the owners very friendly and helpful. The breakfasts were superb. The room was tastefully decorated with top quality furnishings.

The property was decorated to a high standard, the lounge was very comfortable just the place to relax.

Plenty of information available on what to see places to go.

Ideal location easy to find, good parking.

We would say this was the best place we have stayed in New Zealand North Island

All in all home from home.

It is so nice to return from such a wonderful weekend in Rotorua and staying at the Springs is the most 'divine' experience. Colleen and Murray are amazing hosts, I know I will keep in touch with them and visit whenever we can!! Colleen has a great knowledge of Rotorua and all the lovely cafes, in fact she told us about the iced coffee at Fat Dog, let's just say it's a must!!
