“Quiet location, near busy Rotorua”
Reviewed 4 February 2013

We loved the discussions with Maria and Guenter in the evening. The breakfast with the homemade marmelade was delicious, view to the lake included. A cosy place to stay. Thanks a lot for everything.

My partner and me, we've stayed a few times already, because it is just the best place to be. It has a cosy atmosphere and a wonderful breakfast. Maria is a great cook and our dinner was exceptional and very delicious. The views are beautiful and the garden is full of everything. We will come back that is for sure.

When my husband and I first visited New Zealand several years ago, we stayed in Rotorua, but this time decided we wanted something a bit different. This bed-and-breakfast overlooking scenic Lake Tarawera was just the ticket. This gorgeous, custom-built home is set on a hillside, within walking distance of the lake (where one can swim). Gunter and Maria, originally from Germany, are the proprietors, and imported their furnishings, decorations and fixtures from Germany for a real European style retreat. Wireless internet access was available, which was always appreciated by us. We did not avail ourselves of the hot tub or the fitness equipment, but it was nice to know those were available. There is a lovely garden, and the home-grown produce can be found at the breakfast table. We also enjoyed the company of two young ladies from Europe who were staying at the B&B as part of an organic farming homestay program, and who help with other chores.

We spent a restful afternoon on the balcony, listening to birdsong and enjoying the spectacular view, and then a peaceful night in very comfortable beds. The rooms are spacious, well-equipped and impeccably clean. (One thing that seemed odd to us -- but perhaps would not be to Europeans -- is the all-glass door to the guest bathroom at the end of the hall, within sight of the kitchen area. Though the toilet, shower and bath are shielded from view, the center area of the very large bathroom is not so guests may want to keep this in mind while puttering around the bathroom. Still, this was a relatively minor point and would not detract from a mostly positive review.)

Maria offers a home-cooked German dinner for guests, which was tasty and filling, but not remarkable enough to justify the $50 per person.
