Good value for money, friendly, helpful host in a cosy house. In a suburb, not in town centre.

Carole and Ian are truly wonderful hosts. We had a great long chat, sitting out on their covered patio as we dined on their local take-away Indian cuisine (delicious !). Ian is very knowledgeable and helpful in regards to sights to see around the area. Our room was very tidy & comfortable and we enjoyed the big shower. Breakfast was a perfect combination of sweet and savoury. We highly recommend a stay here during your visit to Rotorua!

Ian and Carola are perfect hosts. Their place is clean, homely, tidy and perfect. The breakfasts were perfect and the "pot luck" dinners are excellent. Their knowledge of their town and its attractions are excellent and directions spot on. They are perfect hosts.
