I found this B&B by mistake when trying to find a place somewhere between The Coromandel and Rotorua. I used the hotel’s website and thought it was a good price and looked nice. Breakfast (which looked and smelled good) is available for an additional charge. I opted out of it; I shouldn’t have.
Greg, one of the owners, is very friendly and always nearby for a chat, especially if you like music. Greg & his wife, kids, and cute dog live next door. The B&B is located in one house as well as several motel-like units attached.
The house is furnished very funky and eclectic. The kitchen is beautiful and I want the appliances in my own home. Coffee & tea available all the times in the large kitchen; free internet as well. Nice lounge with comfy stuffed chairs & sofa.
I had a room in the front of the house overlooking the front garden with a double (or queen bed). Bed was comfortable. Douvet and pillows were great. Small table/chairs and wardrobe. Ensuite had one of the best showers ever. Pressure & showerhead were fabulous. Stay here just for this shower!
It is located next to the Domain where there is the soda water hot springs/mineral pools. Treat yourself and book into a private spa. Fabulous waters and nice people. There are trails, if you like to walk or bike, on the hillside right in back.
