“Stately, Quietly Elegant, Comfortable, Warm and Fun”
Reviewed 29 February 2012

My husband and I stayed two nights at this lovingly preserved residence and felt instantly at home with our hosts, Anneke and John Van Der Matt. Our time there was a highlight of our tour of North and South Islands, setting the tone for our first visit to New Zealand. The serenity of the location and views to the mountains surrounding Lake Rotorua made us wish we had more time there. The rooms are large, bright and assembled with every convenience for the traveler. Breakfasts were continental or cooked and included a delight of home-made goodies…Anneke’s delicious preserves from her garden, John’s bread, and a wide selection of continental choices. Our hosts were a great source of information too, and assisted with our plans for getting the most out of Rotarua attractions. A wonderful bonus to staying in B&B’s are the wonderful and interesting people you meet, hosts and travelers alike. This was no exception and we would highly recommend this stay over to you, as we would definitely stay there again.

Room Tip: All the rooms are large and airy, and have their own charm in this quiet, but convenient homestead...

We have felt in the Country villa Rotorua very well. Our room was comfortable really, the receipt by John and Anneke warmly. The breakfast has well tasted us, Anneke had good ideas for tasty surprises. The talks in the evening with the hosts and other guests were stimulating and comfortable. We will recommend the Country to villa.

We spent 3 nights here and thoroughly enjoyed it. Their grounds are beautiful. Beds are comfortable and rooms are large. Breakfast was good. In the evening when we returned they spent time with us and other guests in the lounge -- These are hosts that are not intrusive but enjoy eing with their guests and helping you find the best of Rotorua

Situated in a quiet area within its own beautiful gardens Country Villa is a characterful and welcoming home. Our room was spacious, comfortable and well-furnished with a well-appointed bathroom.
Anneke and John were most helpful with ideas and advice for getting the most out of our visit. They were always on hand to offer tea or wine and were friendly and showed a genuine concern that we enjoyed our stay.

Room Tip: The Verdi Room was brilliant

We stayed 2 nights in the beautiful rose room. John & Anneke are the perfect hosts. We enjoyed their company and they gave us really helpful tips for exploring the sourroundings. The breakfast are very tasty with nice fresh homemade bread and selfmade jams. We really felt comfortable at this place and will chose this place again for our next stay in that region.
