“Beautiful property and great stay”
Reviewed November 2, 2013

We stayed here for only one night (unfortunately).
What a beautiful setting this lodge is in, starting at the winding driveway, welcomed by the friendly goat, chickens and labrador and of course the lodge itself. The staff were very friendly, welcoming and helpful.
Our room was beautiful, very large with desk, comfortable bed and beautiful bathroom with Loccitane toiletries to use.
Nice dining room and bar with pool table. Location very quiet, we found it great being away from the sulphur smell of Rotorua (but we did have a car). Breakfast was included, there's free WIFI, in-room safe (not that it's needed), coffee provided on arrival.
We wish we had stayed longer, and next time we come to the North Island of NZ we'd love to come and stay again!

Exzeptionell style, warmly furnished. If you arrive late, there is an exzellent offer of the kitchen: a big platter of various ham cheese, olives, salat and much more next to the fire place.
For warmer seasons there is a garden view terrace with view over the beautiful park and its animals. Short drive of 12 min.to town of Rotorua. Rooms to the garden are beautiful and tasteful furnished with big bath.

Room Tip: If you don't want to stay in touristic Rotorua but at a romantic countryside style hotel in Shor...

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this quiet and fine hideaway. Lovely location, estate, decor, facilities. It definitely delivered on quality and service. It was the little details that made this place special, from the warm welcome by Patrick, to the lovely chocolates left on our bedside table. Everything was done with great care and finesse. Definitely worth another visit.

Room Tip: Rooms facing west as it gives a view of the hill with sheep grazing. Quiet

From the minute we turned into the leafy, winding driveway and were greeted warmly at the front door, Hamurana Lodge promised to be a special place to stay for our brief over night escape. We were served with a pot of Earl Grey and home made nougat before being shown to our spacious suite on the first floor. This was beautifully furnished with real attention to detail - our own Nespresso machine, complementary sweets and roasted nuts and a nice surprise - an IPod already loaded with an excellent selection of Jazz classics. The bathroom was spotless - always a big deal with us and the bed linen was top quality. Our host immediately set about recommending a restaurant for dinner ( which turned out to be excellent) and promptly made a booking for us. Breakfast hit just the right spot - a generous selection of cold meats, cereals and fruit and some very special home made croissants. We sat on the front porch over looking the stunning gardens and felt rather wonderful ! We thoroughly recommend this lodge for a very quiet break - you'll truly be looked after.

These guys provide great boutique service and customer experience.

The long and winding road to the hotel entrance was a nice way to get used to the relaxed atmosphere of the hotel.

The service was exceptional and professional.

Breakfast was fresh and very nice.

We arrived before checkin time and they were all too happy to settle and check us in.

The rooms are very nice with a great country feel.

The destination is a great escape into a different world.

Couples only. Not suitable for families.

Room Tip: All quite nice. try to get the rooms in the main building above the restaurant/living areas.

I wanted a special treat during my visit to Rotorua and it was money well spent. I was looking for something different and it has definitely lived up to my expectations Great hospitality. Again very knowledgeable staff who helped me plan the best use of my time while I was in Rotorua. Nothing was too trouble. They would always go the extra mile. I wished I had booked 2 nights here, instead of one.

Room Tip: Room with a lake view
