We visited Robertson House in Rotorua several weeks ago on a weekend away from home and I have to say what a fantastic place it was with the most welcoming service.
The house itself is a beautiful old colonial villa which has been done up and is really, really comfortable and homely. It is about a 10-15 fifteen minute walk from the centre of town and is nice and quiet. The house has lovely grounds to spend an afternoon in with a glass of wine.
John, the owner, made sure that we were really well looked after, but it no way invaded our space. He recommended some really good activities and some great cafes and restaurants. He has a beautiful and gentle dog Loki, a samoid, who seems to be the true boss of the place.
Everything here was great- the rooms were clean and tidy, the beds were comfy, the breakfast was fresh & delicious and the vibe was lovely and relaxed. We felt it was great value for money and will definitely be returning next time we visit Rotorua.
Thanks John and Loki!
