We just loved this place. It is a former private residence turned boutique hotel. The service is just amazing. They clearly saw us driving up the long driveway and were waiting for us outside. Showed us to our rooms without being intrusive, recommended some activities for us while we were in Rotorua and booked a tour for us. Nothing was...

We stayed in Hamurana Lodge to celebrate our engagement and I can easily say that it is one of the best places we have ever stayed in! The house was beautiful and immaculately clean. It felt like stepping into a stately home but with none of the pretentiousness. The staff members were fantastic! They were incredibly friendly and helpful and...

My husband and I were there as part of our honeymoon in NZ and it was amazing. The whole staff was very warm and close, they all helped us to prepare our trip in Rotorua. As the hotel was almost empty they upgraded us to the biggest room, an exceptional one with all the facilities! Also the food was excellent,...

Beautiful property with a lot of charm and character. Rotorua is a dumpy town, so you'll appreciate being in such pleasant surroundings. Patrick was outstanding and couldn't do enough for us. Lauren was more distant, but completely efficient. Get the gourmet platter--it's excellent. Two areas for improvement: towels and amenities in the bathroom are weak, and the cold breakfast is...

Hello and many thanks for your lovely review.

Looking forward to your return. Warmest regards

My entire family of four loved the Hamurana Lodge. It was a great change from hotels and the long hours of flying to New Zealand from the US. Patrick and the entire staff couldn't have been more gracious or welcoming. Breakfast was exceptional - on par with the Sofitel in Auckland. The lodge was charming and serene. Patrick helped us...

We spent two nights at the Lodge and thoroughly enjoyed it. The room was comfortable and well-appointed and the service was attentive without being obtrusive. Our hosts were very accommodating and made us feel welcome. A comment in another review resonated with me, "Nothing was too much bother for the outstanding staff". This is true and in my opinion the...
