Lyons Lakestay is just outside Rotorua on the North Island. It was clean, comfortable and only 15 mins from the town centre. It was perfect for us as we did not want to stay in town. the views from the accomodationwere beautiful and it certainly didnt feel like we were so close to a city. it is a perfect base for any travellers and for a family. has its own kitchen and breakfasts are available. we also found a wonderful spa round the corner - Carol Bannister at Careem which was so lovely and for my boyfriend a godsend as he had just completed the ironman at Taupo the day before.
thanks cheryl for being so helpful and welcoming.

Having just returned from a three week holiday in New Zealand staying in a variety of different hostels and B&Bs, Lyons Lakestay was one of the best places we stayed. Away from the 'hustle and bustle(!)' of Rotorua (about 10 minutes drive) it was quiet and well-equipped, but above all our host was excellent. Cheryl was enthusiastic about the local area, sharing her ideas for what we could do in and around Rotorua and had provided a lot of information useful to our stay. It was reasonably priced and well worth a look if you're staying in the area and planning to take in the local sights.

Lyons Lakestay is one of the most peaceful locations you will ever find.

It has a fantastic garden and great views of the lake with good clean accommodation and facilities.

Warm and friendly hosts make this place very special to stay at.

Be aware that you will need a car to access the accommodation as it is out of town, but it is worth the trip.
