This was our first trip to New Zealand and we could not have started the trip on a better note. We arrived late to Rotorua, and there was Fred, one of the owners, waiting for us in the driveway. He could not have been more welcoming and charming, helping us to our rooms and with our bags and offering us a drink and lots of advice on what to do. We met Alex, the co-owner, the next day and he was also extremely welcoming, friendly, and helpful in directing our daily excursions. The two create such a wonderful atmosphere that you do not want to leave. The whole environment is quiet, comfortable and cozy, but also elegant. Fred and Alex and their staff took the time to get to know us individually, knew our names within hours, and made us feel pampered and special. The rooms and the grounds are beautiful. We had some very humid weather; apparently, it was some of the highest temperatures in the north island ever. The rooms did get a bit hot and muggy and there is no central air conditioning (but each room has a fan that can be used). They have a nice gym, pool and tennis court. There are also friendly donkeys and dogs on site for any animal lovers. The breakfasts were terrific, with home baked breads, croissants, and wonderful jams/honey.
