We stayed there for one night. It was a lovely hotel with top services. Staffs of hotel were so nice and the view was beautiful. We would like stay here if we visit Rotorua again. If there is anything not perfect, it would be the sound insulation as we can hear others' talking from other rooms. But overall was really...

My husband and I eloped to get married in New Zealand and toured both the South and then the North Islands before tying the knot on 22 January 2016 in the Bay of Islands. One of the major highlights of our time in New Zealand was our stay at Hamurana Lodge. Patrick was extremely charming and attentive and all of...

We stayed 2 nights at Hamurana Lodge in a suite and were very impressed with the level of service and beautiful surroundings here. We are regular lodge dwellers and have been to many lodges throughout New Zealand, and I would rate this as one of the better ones. Patrick and his team were absolutely fantastic... greeting you at the door...

The Lodge, set in the most beautiful grounds, was a wonderful experience; from the spacious comfortable room to the attentive staff, who never seemed to go off duty and somehow always managed to be there to welcome your return and wave you off. Nothing was ever too much trouble and the local information supplied was invaluable. Would highly recommend, our...

There is a lot that is nice about Hamurana Lodge. It has a beautiful long driveway with cows and rabbits and it feels like you are driving up to an English estate. The house itself is a large tudor mansion. The inside, however, is completely dated and can use a multi-million dollar renovation. I asked one employee when the lodge...

This is a beautiful boutique hotel surrounded by its own garden and farm on the outskirts of Rotorua. The service is absolutely first class. The rooms are spacious and very well appointed. There is a pool, an exercise room and a nice barroom with good pool table. The breakfast is superb. There is no dinner service but they do provide...

Yes, 6. Half extra for an all time on duty staff. Half for the mind blowing property . It's a wonderful lodge, unlike the typical ones. It's a luxury boutique hotel and one of the biggest pocket killers. Yet, in all ways it justifies the bomb you pay every night. It's absolutely secluded with a proper drive in first, once...

This is a very stylish and comfortable place to stay. Very comfortable bed. L'Occitane toiletries in the bathroom. The service was superb (Four Seasons level). You only had to ask and someone was always there to help. Breakfast was a very generous cold buffet. One of my favourite things was the nespresso machine in the room.

We were greeted by Patrick, the manager, who runs a wonderful, quiet, peaceful guesthouse. Out of the bustle of the town, you need transportation to arrive. The house and surroundings are pristine. Take a walk and pat the donkey. Continental breakfast is good and the entire staff are helpful. The only negative was that we heard snoring through the walls,...
