After a fairly hectic 2 week tour of 7 locations in New Zealand, one memory that stands out is our 2 nights stay at Hamurana Lodge. After visiting many larger hotels, the feel of Hamurana Lodge with its personalized service and friendly hosts (we interacted mainly with Jenna and Fred) was extremely refreshing.
The food was great, we really enjoyed the mini-platter with its variety of meats, seafood, cheeses, breads, fruit and veggies. The breakfast spread was equally good (included home-made jams), and a thoughtful touch was freshly baked cookies at the lounge area. We loved the compact yet well-stocked bar, an exclusive experience with a nice sampling of local beers.
The loaded iPod in the room was a nice idea, gave us a chance to enjoy some old favourite tracks and relax over a glass of wine.
We were well advised on places to visit in Rotorua (we settled on the Museum and Wai-O-Tapu Geothermals), both of which we really enjoyed.
We also enjoyed a walk around the property, the farm animals and delightful dog Sunny (who was just as friendly as the folks at the Lodge) were a pleasure to have around.
