Hamurana lodge amazed us on so many levels. The drive down the long driveway leads you to the gorgeous mansion with breathtaking views over the grounds and lake. From the moment we arrived, staff treated us with world class customer service. They were friendly and attentive, making our visit wonderful. When we weren't able to make the complimentary breakfast due...

Kia Ora Kallete, Thank you very much for the lovely review! We are glad to hear that we provided you with a memorable experience. Many guests enjoy a game of pool at the end of the day and some like to sit by the fire with a glass of red. Thank you again and we look forward to hosting you...

We visited here for our first year wedding anniversary over Easter - a lovely lodge with very comfortable rooms and evening turndown (they even left Easter eggs on our pillows). Bathrooms could do with a bit of an upgrade given the cost of the rooms per night. The next morning brekkie was great & they did an Easter egg hunt...

What a wonderful place to stay. We arrived at The Hamurana Lodge to be greeted by Eimear and Patrick who were so friendly and helpful and made our stay unforgettable.

A beautiful boutique hotel in tranquil setting just out of Rotorua. A wonderfully warm welcome where we were shown to lovely clean, comfortable and attractive rooms. While there was no restaurant attached it was only a relatively short drive to a good local restaurant and the breakfast at the lodge was delicious. It was like staying with good friends in...

The lodge looks magnificent on the website but we were disappointed to find that there is no air conditioning and our room was unbearably hot on the 2nd floor. If you open the window to get air, there are no screens and you are quickly bitten by mosquitoes and moths flood in after dark. We had to check out early...

Kia Ora Carol, it's great to hear from you and thank you very much for taking time to share your experience. It's very unfortunate that it was a hot day when you arrived, you are absolutely right about global warming as Rotorua was usually very cool even on summer days, but has gotten hotter each year.

We stayed fro 3 nights at the end of February. This place has beautiful grounds and the staff are friendly and very attentive. The continental breakfast was lovely. The place itself is run down, carpets in the rooms and throughout are dirty and worn, bathrooms need updating and deep cleaning of moldy areas and the beds are OK, not great....

Patrick was wonderful in accommodating some changes in our stay and the staff was fantastic in helping us find places of interest and restaurant choices. Lodge was beautiful, secluded, comfortable with full amenities. Loved it! Highly recommend since it's easy to get to Rotorua without the crowds around your stay!!
