When there was a minor issue with the refrigerator that needed attention it was managed in an enterprising way. When our GPS failed and... More

I can only endorse the friendly and enthusiastic welcome at this historic and authentically furnished property in Rotorua. We found our room rather like staying in a museum - full of authenticity but a little lacking in the home comforts of soft furniture, a TV, tea and coffee making facilities. These were all available in a shared lounge area but... More

John is a most enthusiastic, warm, charming and informative host. A great location within walking distance of the town centre and volcanic thermal park. He has created an exceptional b&b in a unique house in Rotorua, we were so lucky to have found him. We would highly recommend on all levels. Liz and Pete

Our bedroom was a good size as was the en suite bathroom (bath & separate shower). Breakfast was continental with plenty of choice. John pointed us in the right direction for both restaurants and places to visit and he... More

From the moment we pulled up we knew we'd like Robertson House. We arrived on a motorcycle and John was already waiting outside, waving us into the secure garage where the bike stayed for the next couple of days. Robertson House is a charming and original colonial style house, built from timber with high ceilings and renovated by John to... More
