We couldn't have asked for a warmer welcome than we were given by Lindsay and Graham! They were true hosts in every sense of the word - but made us feel as if we were living in our own home! They also provided us with excellent advice about new and interesting places to visit in the area - even though we had visited Ngongotaha several times in the past.
Our room (with a gorgeous view over Lake Rotorua) was beautifully appointed with every convenience. And the residents' lounge - which we enjoyed on our own as we were the only guests - was beautifully furnished with comforable sofas and chairs and also had a marvellous view over the lake. There were many books that we could browse at leisure, as well as a good supply of coffee, tea and biscuits - and cold drinks in the fridge.
The breakfasts were excellent - with fresh fruit and yoghurt or a full cooked breakfast if you wanted it. And my wife's gluten intolerance was fully catered for with cereal, bread and biscuits.
We would happily recommend Lakeside Lodge to anyone who is looking for first class acommodation in the Rotorua area. In our experience, it ranks among the very best places we have ever stayed in New Zealand.
