“Comfortable and inviting stay in Rotorua”
Reviewed 25 April 2014

Had a great stay here in late March 2014. We had the extra luxury of being the only guests at the B&B for both nights which made for extra privacy and the opportunity to get to know our lovely hosts, Mike and Peter. A well-maintained, clean, safe environment with an outstanding breakfast. Would recommend getting in touch with Mike and Peter before your trip to Rotorua as their suggestions are spot on and will keep you as busy as you'd like to be. Thanks for an enjoyable stay!

It was a pleasure to have you stay with us. We are pleased you had a nice time in Rotorua and a relaxing stay at our B&B. Glad you enjoyed the double helping of sausage and bacon courtesy of the vegetarian guest! Hope you liked the haircut.

We have travelled the world, but never been up to the northern point of New Zealand. Our first stop on a 2 week holiday break was at Guysers Rotorua, and the hosts Mike and Peter made us so very welcome. Right from the start we felt at home in their delightful B & B and gardens. Our room was really comfortable and the breakfasts were fantastic. Diets have now been commenced!!!
It was a pleasure to meet other guests from abroad and share in the general chatter.
Thanks guys for a great stay and we look forward to seeing you again in the near future.

We stayed 3 nights at Guysers. Mike & Peter are helpful, friendly hosts who went out of their way to make our stay pleasant. The room we had was tastefully decorated & comfortable. The breakfasts are very nice. The outdoor courtyard & spa are a welcome facility after a day out sightseeing. Guysers is perfectly located very close to the city centre.

Room Tip: Worth paying the little extra to take the room with en-suite and direct access to the spa & cour...

Thank you for a very nice review. We are pleased you enjoyed your stay with us, despite being without a TV for one night due to unexpected sulfur damage to the connections on the arial (which we fixed the next day). If Raffles Hotel gets the clean sweep of 5 stars, then for our B&B in downtown Rotorua to get a clean sweep of 4 stars we take this with great compliments. Thank you.

Mike & Peter were great hosts for our stay in Rotorua. They made it feel like a home away from home. Their attention to detail was superb - comfortable room, clean spa and great breakfast. The B&B is centrally placed and within walking distance of the town centre. They also gave us all the local tourist information and restaurant recommendations (including one of the best Indian meals we've had!). We would heartily recommend it, and hope to go back some day.

Broke the habit of a life time and didn't stay in motels on this trip in favour of B&B's and home stays. Guysers was an excellent choice of B&B. Mike and Peter were great hosts and their superb local knowledge had me wanting to visit places I had never heard of which is saying something after many holidays in Rotorua. Their home is comfortable and welcoming. A soak in the hot tub after a full day was a particular delight, slept like a baby in the very comfortable bed. A place to recommend and deserves a repeat visit

Mike and Pete showed us great hospitality when we were staying there. Despite them being a bit sick and under the weather, we were given valuable information about the local area and a wonderful dining recommendation which we took up and would not have found/tried on our own. We would definitely recommend Mike and Pete to gay travellers to the area.

Thank you for taking the time to review us. Reviews are important for our business. We are both over the flu now than goodness, but we are glad that you enjoyed your stay with us. It was a wonderful surprise that you had arranged your wedding while here in New Zealand. Come back and visit Rotorua again and enjoy more of what is on offer in this very cultural city. Congratulations on your wedding.
