We had An amazing stay at Doolan's and were extremely well looked after by the ever energetic and caring Christine. We were extremely spoilt and thoroughly enjoyed the Breakfast while having a nice chat to Christine, who also sat with is and spoke to is about places to visit. Christine has a lot of knowledge about the places to visit around Rotorua and fun things to do.
The accommodation is beautiful. Well laid out, spacious rooms, beautiful mountain views, amazing nature and some farm animals. Did you ever think you would see Ricky Martin in NZ? Well he is one of the Cheeky Donkey's at the accommodation who is always looking to get a good feed from you.
We were the only couple booked in over the 3 nights, hence got to choose any room we wanted. It was hard to choose as every room is unique with different views.
Tip: if you or your kids would enjoy feeding the donkeys - take a bag of carrots or so e fruit along. If you enjoy feeding the quail family - take a loaf of white bread. ( they quails do not eat brown bread. Lol)
I will definitely visit Doolan's again and stay longer. Hopefully with more family and friends later. Thank you for the best holiday stay ever Christine. You are an inspiration.
