We spent 4 nights here in the Country room, and really enjoyed it. A very relaxing and peaceful rural setting, but not far at all from Rotorua and all the attractions. If you are into trout fishing Mark can be of great help. The gardens and the stream are beautiful. Excallent setting for a couple with enough facilities to be self sufficiant. The beds were very comfortable.
But the Lodge which sleeps up to 12 people is also very well set up for bigger groups, with lots of space.
We really enjoyed our stay. Mark & Heather are great hosts.
