Koura Lodge is right on the shore of Lake Rotorua, but it is a bit difficult to find, being a short drive from the town centre and down a steep drive (just wide enough!) with a very small signpost to tell you that you have arrived. The accommodation is spacious and comfortable, and we were welcomed by Kim - an actual Kiwi (most places we stayed, all the staff seemed to be from Europe or, like Kim's husband, South Africa). As some other reviewers have noted, the breakfast was a bit ordinary, but adequate. Didn't have time to use the lake, but the facilities (including canoes/kayaks) were there. Unlike some of the B&B's we stayed in NZ, it felt a bit impersonal, but everything we needed was there.
