My husband and I recently spent three nights in the quail suite at this lovely little B&B. The room is bright and airy and well equipped including a good sized walk-in closet and a delightful little patio right outside the bedroom. The grounds are beautiful with a well tended garden area and great views as well. Although about a 10 minute drive back into Rotorua, the drive is quick and it was nice to be out of town in the quiet of the countryside.
What really makes this inn so good is Christine - the inn keeper. Christine was ever helpful with directions and suggestions of what to do and what not to do while we were there. She had advice about hikes and sites and even where to park while in town. We got the feeling that she just couldn't do enough for us - much appreciated.
Bathroom could stand an update, though we understand that this will be done soon. Also, a chair for the dressing table/desk would have been useful but really these are very small points.
