“Chicken, run”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 May 2014

The final part of my week long birthday trip to New Zealand ended at a stay in the Blossom Cottage at Rotorua.

Wow, what a wonderful place to stay. The views around the area were fantastic and as we pulled up to the cottage we saw all kinds of wildlife around us from Cows to Donkeys and more. Greeting us upon arrival were some freshly baked brownies which were absolutely fantastic. The cottage itself is very quaint, and as an Englishman, reminded me a lot of my home country. The bed, well I have to say was possibly one of the most comfy beds I've ever had the pleasure to sleep in, I really must find out what brand of sheets they were, I have never felt anything so soft and smooth.

In the morning I popped out to grab some eggs for our breakfast, a new experience for me as dozens of chickens surrounded my legs in search of food. I felt a bit bad but the eggs tasted delicious so that soon passed.

In the evening of my birthday, we sat in the hot tub sipping on champagne and gazing up at the beautiful milky way above us. A fantastic way to see in a new year of age.

Visiting the Polynesian Spa, staying in this cottage, the beautiful sites of the countryside. I can't remember a time feeling so content and relaxed in all my 31 years.

We stayed 2 nights at Blossom cottage: 2 adults and 2 kids age 11 and 13. Everyone loved it! The rooms and bathroom were spotless and comfortable. 1 big bed in a room and 2 single in the other was perfect for a family of 4.

Marianne obviously spent a lot of time thinking about what her guests may like and want. Every detail is covered; From a full supply of pots, pans, utensils and pantry staples in the kitchen, to providing food for the animals, to movies and books for rainy days or outdoor toys and games (balls, trampoline, ping pong, foosball) for sunny days. Private hot tub and BBQ are right on the back deck
.
As other reviewers have said, our kids loved feeding the animals and getting eggs in the morning. The gorgeous late summer sunset and sunrise gave opportunities for plenty of nice photos.

What made this place truly remarkable for us is the feel of total independence combined with the total service experience you get from a B&B. We could get help/advice whenever we needed it, or we could just enjoy the place on our own.

No bad sulfur smell and no farm animal smell that I could notice either.
You will need a car to get to the farm which is just a few minutes drive from the city, but too far to walk.

We really wished we had 1 or 2 more nights at Blossom Cottage.

The hosts were very helpful and did everything they could to make us welcome. They arranged excursions for us and we enjoyed farm fresh food for breakfast.
My daughter loved the farm animals and would spend a lot of time feeding the rabbits, donkeys and chickens.
We felt very much at home and would definitely return to Blossum cottage.

We loved our stay here! Really nice cottage with clean rooms! The boys loved the toys that were available and the trampoline and of course the animals! There were also so many eggs we could collect everyday from the hens! We enjoyed feeding the animals every morning and there DVD selection. Great location and we would definitely want to come back again!

Blossom Cottage is a wonderful place for family to stay. We had a warm welcome from Marianne and Rene at the gate; and their kindness and thoughtfulness continued during our four days there. The cottage is gorgeous and has everything you need including comfortable beds, warm fluffy blankets, games and toys for the children, and scrumptious home made food. The kids loved feeding the animals and collecting eggs each day. The spa at the end of our adventure filled days was fantastic. Thoroughly recommend Blossom Cottage!

We stayed here for two nights whilst travelling around North Island. Our stay here coincided with our 40th wedding anniversary and there was a small bottle of champagne waiting for us - a lovely touch Marianne! Thank you. The cottage is well sited with wonderful views, a great barbecue and large hot tub - perfect. Leisurely breakfasts including fresh eggs collected from the hen house couldn't be better. The cottage was very clean and comfortable and sited just far enough away from all the attractions for those who like to return to peace and quiet. We couldn't have imagined a better place to celebrate our anniversary and wished we had booked for longer. Many thanks to Marianne and Rene for making our stay so comfortable.

Thank you for looking after us! We felt more than welcome here and our little boy loved meeting all the animals. We could have stayed a lot longer and it was a shame we only stayed one night. We made the most of it though, using the hot tub and feeding all the animals! I thoroughly recommend this place!
