“Beautiful setting with wonderful hosts!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 May 2014

My wife and I stayed here for a few nights in November. The location was wonderful - looking out over the lake from the top of the hill, with the lawn and garden in the foreground. The hosts, Alan and George, were lovely, warm and open. They had good ideas for places to visit, and they brought us around the farm to see the animals and the gardens. We would be happy to stay with them again if we return to Rotorua!

We stayed in this beautiful bed and breakfast over Easter for two nights. Located on their own land with farm animals which are actually more like pets. The owners are very friendly and made us feel very comfortable in their home offering lots of help with local places to visit and eat at. Lovely breakfast with fresh eggs from their chickens. Highly recommend.

We stayed over for one night with 5 adult and 1 child.

We enjoyed the cosy settings and beautiful layout of the house.

In the morning we fed the farm animals and enjoyed breakfast prepared for us.

Will recommend this b&b to anyone who is looking for a quiet and cosy stay in Rotorua....

A gem of a place with incredible views matched by the incredible warmth and friendliness of the hosts Georgie and Alan. We stayed here for a mini-break with no particular plans (having done no local research at all) - Alan and Georgie were very generous with their suggestions and gave us heaps of ideas. We went to Wai-O-Tapu to see the thermal volcanic area which I can highly recommend. However you don’t need to venture far from the B&B to enjoy what the area has to offer. The nearby Hamurana Spring (including the enormous red wood trees) are worth a look. But meeting the animals on the farm was something really special. You can tell these animals have fallen on good times and are an integral part of the B & B. Put simply this is a magic place that you’d be foolish to overlook. We left with new friends – how often can you say that!
*Equally suited to families – or those who want a romantic getaway.
And…. If you’re feeling sporty - see how you go on the Hamurana challenge!

My fiancé and I stayed here for 12 days after a busy 3 weeks in Australia .
We chose lakeview heights and location after recommendation and exceeded our expectations !
The views were amazing , the room was clean and the bed was very comfy with beautiful clean white cotton bedding .Breakfast was perfect and the hosts were more than obliging as I am wheat and gluten free , we also had a few excellent evening meals and enjoyed Georgiana and Alan's company. They were very helpful and advised us of several locations to visit around Rotorua .
We really enjoyed seeing the animals around the land feeding them ,and experienced the baby alpaca birth .
We hope to re visit in a few years time when travelling through New Zealand .
Highly recommend this accommodation are stay was memorable .

Stayed for 2 nights in January 2014.
Hosts Georgina and Alan very friendly and eager to help out at all times.
Booked the Rotorua room and glad we did as views over lake Rotorua from the balcony of this well appointed room are just incredible. It felt as though we were on the top of the world!
Young son had a great time feeding the animals and playing with the very friendly dog "Tui". Loved "Pickles" the pig. Watch out for those cheeky goats though!
Very quite rural location but visitors should remember this is a Farm Stay and you may have the roosters giving you an early morning wake up call!
Can certainly recommend the very extensive breakfast.
Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this property and would recommend to anyone wishing Farm Stay style accommodation.
Thank you George and Alan for a really enjoyable stay in your lovely home.

My husband and I recently returned from honeymooning in New Zealand. Of all the places we stayed during our two-week adventure, the two nights spent at Lakeview Heights Farm Stay were by far our most memorable. Alan & George are truly the hosts with the most - kind, friendly & hospitable. Our room was clean, spacious and comfortable with the kind of elegant country charm that makes you feel instantly welcome. We opted to stay in one night to have dinner with our hosts as well - what a great decision! Delicious food, stellar company & conversation and a breathtaking view as the sun set over the lake and the stars came out to blanket the sky. Of course one of my favorite memories was our journey around the farm for a meet & greet with the animals - "Pickles" the pig, the pregnant alpacas, the droopy-eared sheep, the grinning goat - I loved them all!

I wish we could have stayed longer. Hopefully we can go back for an anniversary! Huge thanks again to George and Alan for an unforgettable honeymoon memory.

Room Tip: Our room was perfect - not sure if it had a name, but see photos. The only thing to keep in mind whe...
