We booked a last minute escape to Rotorua for the weekend and called a few hotels to see who had the optimal bedroom layout that allowed us to put our toddler down for the night but still enjoy the evening to ourselves. Kym took our call and talked us through the different room configurations. I went ahead with the booking largely on the back of Kyms friendly approach. A few hours later we received an email from Kym to say she had popped into the cottage she had recommended and explained the configuration which actually exceeded our expectations. Such refreshing, proactive customer service.
On arrival we were personally greeted by Andrew who took us on a quick tour of the facilities before showing us to our cottage.
The setting is simply spectacular. An old family estate home has been converted to a lodge. It's grand, dramatic and peaceful. The cottage itself was beautifully decorated in neutral tones, clean and beautifully laid out. Everything we wanted or could possibly need was on hand. We spent most of our time staring at the vastness of our Lake Rotorua view ...and patting the miniature ponies who hang around our deck. The resort has a small private beach on the lake for paddling and lovely grounds for exploring. We declined dinner to babysit but enjoyed our 'cooked to order served with a smile' breakfast in the morning.
If you're looking for pure escapism in the Rotorua area ...with just a five minute drive to the Skyline and Rainbow Springs ....this is is your spot.
We've visited Rotorua many times but this was the first time we've stayed out of the city centre and were rewarded with a very refreshing, scenic and peaceful experience.
