“It does not get better than Hamurana Lodge!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 7, 2014

We would like to thank Patrick, Laura and the entire team at Hamurana Lodge for making our stay truly unforgettable. The service was outstanding, everyone was so nice and accomodating, the hotel and the surroundings are stunning, the breakfast is sorely missed by us and the kids... I could go on :)
We highly recommend the Lodge and we look forward to come back next time we hit the North Island. Thank you again for making this a special holiday.

Kia ora Marc, it was our pleasure to have you and your family stay with us. Rotorua is definitely a good place to stopover when you travel through the north island. We look forward to welcoming you again here at the lodge and the kids can spend some more time with the animals :)

Overwhelmingly friendly welcome set the tone for our brief stay here. We were made to feel very special and well looked after from the moment we drove up the long driveway. We left a pair of earphones which were sent back to Australia the following week. Great service guys.

Room Tip: Room 6 not the best for those needing to get up during the night due to the stairwell.

Kia Ora Mike & Jan, it was a great pleasure hosting you both. I believe Rotorua is a bit different from busy Melbourne.Hope you enjoyed your time in New Zealand and come back to visit the neighbour some other time. Kind regards.

This was such a relaxing place to stay - we really felt at home from the very beginning. They met us at the steps, carried our bags up, asked us if we wanted a cup of tea or coffee. We were shown to our room and it was simply great. Very spacious, clean and comfortable. Great views of the country-side and lake. They helped us with recommendations for activities and even arranged the bookings and transportation for us. The breakfast was just right. We were sad we only planned to stay one night.

it's sad to say good bye to families, but it also means a return in the near future. Rotorua has lots to do and see, do come back and explore more. Warmest regards.

We really enjoyed staying here. Probably the nicest place on our tour of new zealand. Fantastic staff (little touches like meeting us on the steps as we drove up, to great tour advice, etc) Very nice room. Lovely light breakfast. Enjoyable evening playing Snooker!

We stayed here recently and we were warmly treated by the staff. The customer service was excellent but we found the rooms pretty run down and needing a face lift. My husband and I remarked, if you came here thinking this was a 4 star establishment, you would be pleasantly surprised but 5 star expectations might leave you a little under whelmed. Don't let this turn you off though....the country setting is stunning, the service is first rate, the breakfast is beautiful, the people are friendly. We would definitely stay here again. The manager was very helpful in suggesting excellent local restaurants and private hot pools and gave us a bag with towels to take along on our trip....lovely touch.

We only had one night here but it was lovely. The driveway leading up to the house really sets the stage for a gracious home. Very helpful staff and service. Beautiful view of the lake. very good breakfast with croissants.

Thank you very much for your review. Many guests like to take a walk along the driveway, Merlin the donkey and Lee the goat are always around to say hi. We are glad to hear that you also enjoyed the breakfast here and our croissants are always fresh from the oven. Warm regards.

A brilliantly different hotel located a couple of miles out of town, away from any aromas of sulphur; Hamurana Lodge is located in its own very large, beautifully tended grounds & provides everything a discerning traveller could wish for, from a wide choice of breakfast items, a small gymnasium, outdoor swimming pool & beautiful gardens to roam. The staff were all excellent - friendly without interfering - helpful above & beyond the expected level - knowledgeable & efficient - & they provided us with an excellent stay with their overall very high quality.

Room Tip: We were given a top floor room, accessible via fairly steep stairs, but it was worth the small extra...

Hello Alan, thank you for your review. Many guests agree with you that our distance from town is just right, away from the smell and handy to access most sites. Our rooms have different layouts and colour schemes, do come back and try another room. Warmest regards.
