Had a lovely 2-night stay at Lakeview Heights. The house was beautiful and the view was spectacular. We love the farm animals and the 2 friendly dogs, Bess and Tui. Alan and George were wonderful hosts. Helpful suggestions on where to go and what to do especially those not included in the guide books. We have a fantastic time.

Had a pleasant stay, we loved the views, kids loved the farm. Morning run down and up the hill was a highlight! while challenging the spring and natural forest at the bottom of the hill is a great location. Thank you George and Alan for your hospitality.

Great hosts and fantastic room with the most amazing views. Delicious breakfasts and good to meet all the local residents - including pigs, chickens, goats, sheep and alpacas! Really helpful to have recommendations where to go and what to see and do.

The B&B was beautiful, the hosts were really friendly and helpful, and Alan even offered to let us swim in his triathlon training pool. The kids loved it! The sheep were really cute, thundering round when they heard the call of food....

We had a wonderful time, our son (and me and my husband) have a wonderful time with the animals. :) Our hosts Alan and George were very friendly. Scenery is breathtaking. We left the place with nothing but fond memories.

The room we stayed in in this farm was comfortable and the views over the surrounding countryside were fantastic. It is a lovely place to stay but it's a good 20 minutes plus drive to places to eat, which was a bit of a downer for us after a long day.

Alan and George were lovely hosts. The rooms were comfortable, spotless and welcoming. The farm is absolutely beautiful with animals, spectacular views and great location. The first day we fed the animals in the morning, enjoyed a home cooked breakfast and then spent the day visiting the many sights of Rotorua. Alan and George were so helpful in helping us...
