“Quality Accommodation, Friendly Service and Stunning Cleanliness”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 January 2013

Colleen and Murray were an absolute pleasure as hosts at the homely and relaxing Springs. Luxury Bed and Breakfast ain't wrong, with ultra comfy beds and all the mod cons in the room it was very pleasant to sit and chat with the pair about the region, New Zealand and while away the hours with food and wine. The B&B itself is gorgeous and lavish, while maintaining humble and quaint living areas. I also couldn't smell of sulphur from the natural springs there at all. I look forward to staying at The Springs next time I'm rolling through Rotorua!

From the moment we arrived Collen and Murray did everything they could to make our stay memorable. An excellent room and some lovely touches. These included a weather forecast for next day each evening, wll cooked breakasts and a very welcome hot water bottle on our retrun from the Hangi, which they had booked for us following an email from the UK before our vist. Our stay was marked by much laughter and good conversaion.

From the moment we arrived at The Springs to the morning we left we were made to feel incredibly welcome guests. There was nothing Colleen and Murray could not do to help us - restaurant advice and booking, town hints, massage bookings - even to telling us we could fit in a gondola trip before the Maori evening tour pick up ! Our room was immaculate, as was the lounge - and tea on the terrace when we arrived was an unexpected bonus. With free WiFi access and a guest PC we were able to book ahead for all we needed. Breakfast was a treat. A truly memorable start to our NZ holiday.

This is a very good and purpose-built B and B but it is a couple of miles out of the centre of the city. It's unlikely that you would have arrived here on foot though and you will need to drive to the various attractions of Rotorua. We stayed for 2 nights and were fully occupied - a week would probably be too long for most people. We enjoyed the Polynesian Spa, the Mitai Maori Cultural Experience including a post-dinner trip to look at Kiwis in the adjacent Rainbow Springs and there is some excellent walking in the nearby Redwood Forest and Blue Lake.

The rooms themselves are on a corridor with some fascinating pictures of old Rotorua on display and to the side of the owners' home. Contrary to some other reviews, we found that this meant that we were not always tripping over them but on arrival and at meal times they were very keen to ensure we made the most of our time here. Murray, who is retired from the travel industry, is a little quieter than Colleen but both are very hospitable and an excellent source of information about local and national tourist destinations.

Rooms are modern, functional and spotlessly clean with some distinctive touches: large walk-in closets so that luggage is not under foot; switchless bedside lights so that you don't have to fumble to turn them on and off; an over-head fan; free Wi-Fi. There is a good residents' lounge with free sherry and port and Internet access as well as the usual newspapers, magazines, books and games. Breakfasts are freshly cooked from a good selection by Colleen and I can recommend the blueberry pancakes which were probably the best I've eaten anywhere.

We were enjoying a very nice couple of days in Rotorua and Collin and Murray were our kind hosts in The Spings luxury B&B. The rooms are very comfortable but the best of our stay there was, by far , the excellent hospitality and sympathy we received. They were taking care of all we needed all the time. It was also remarcable the very tasty pancakes that Collin cooked for us every morning.Unforgetable stay!

B&Bs are all about staying with people and not corporations. You can talk with the owners, get to know them a bit, and enjoy a bit of company. The owners of this house, Colleen & Murray, are truly caring about every detail of your stay and go to some lengths to see you leave with a smile on your face.

The house is unassuming in a residential section close to many attractions. The rooms are spotless and the beds comfortable. The breakfasts are tasty. It is the quintessential B&B (and we have stayed in hundreds).

Go here for the amenities but stay for the hosts!

A very comfortable, well-appointed B&B and our hosts, Colleen and Murray, made our stay even more pleasant with their friendly and helpful manner. Located in a quiet neighborhood a short drive from downtown Rotorua, it was a convenient venue to access all the local attractions. We would definitely return.
