Patrick and Ian made us feel very welcome and very attentive to our needs. The lodge's rooms were spacious and immaculate and about 10 - 15 mins drove from the city centre. Good facilities and very private. Highly recommend it.More

Loved Hamurana - beautiful rooms and grounds which include a donkey named Merlin and llama. Ian, Patrick and Leona were great! The best place to stay in the Rotorua area. Small and charming. Nice breakfast and cozy areas throughout the Lodge.
