“Under new management”
Reviewed 2 April 2009

This country hotel is set in beautiful grounds, with commanding views of Lake Rotorua from the upper floors and the terrace. All the rooms are well appointed, however try to avoid the rooms on the groundfloor at the back of the property. The views are not nearly as nice and if you're particularly unfortunate enough to be in Room 2, which is located directly under the main stairs, you will here a lot of creaking from said stairs as people walk on them.

The new hosts had only taken over a week before my stay and had drafted in half the family and friends to help keep things running. They're in the process of changing all the televisions to flat screens in every room and my room didn't have a tv at all at the time. This didn't bother me, but it may bother some of you.

Lastly, its best to go and eat out at night. The hotel does serve meals in the evening, but at 125 NZD for three courses its vastly overpriced. You can get a similar quality of dining in Rotorua for only 65 -75 NZD for three courses. Be warned!

Dear Member,
Many thanks for your review above. My sincere apologies for the inconvenience experienced during your stay with us. Hamurana was purchased in March 2009 and the initial weeks transition were difficult and as new owners now fully in control we sincerely apologies for. Since then we are pleased to let you know that we have upgraded the entire estate and all our rooms (no more rooms under the stairs) now feature the latest modern items including ipod stations, flat screen Tv's..The Lodge main rooms have been totally re-modelled in order to offer our guests the highest touch of service and facilities for an all inclusive stay including a new meeting room and a large fitness studio. We have also reviewed our restaurant and currently offering superb French influenced dinning options as well as ''daily fresh'' menus by our chef.
We trust we will have the chance to host you again on a future visit for you to experience the new Hamurana Lodge. Warm regards
