We are a group of four adults spending five weeks in NZ. A-Kahu definitely ranked as one of the best stays - Nigel and Keri are fantastic hosts - really made us feel at home and Keri is the best cook. We had a lovely room overlooking the lake and had constant access to the kayaks and all lake amenities....

I recently stayed here with my partner and cannot rate A-Kahu Lodge highly enough. The location is stunning and overlooks Rotorua's beautiful lake, the house itself is gorgeous and you instantly feel very at home at the Lodge. Breakfast was to die for, and the hosts were truly amazing people. I highly recommend a stay at the Lodge.

On the surface I think A-Kahu is glossy and stylish but scratch the surface and it is let down a little by small imperfections. The rooms are large and spacious and decorated very stylishly.

Beautifully decorated room with lovely views of the lake. Very friendly & welcoming hosts who were happy to share a drink (or three!) and have a chat. They provided no end of helpful advice on what to see & do in Rotorua and beyond. Breakfast was delicious and plentiful and my wife is now addicted to fejoa juice (thanks Nigel!)....

The hosts were great and full of ideas and suggestions (and even discounts for local attractions). Breakfast was delicious. The house is large and beautiful, right at the water's edge, with a lovely view across the lake. We only stayed two nights, but we would have happily stayed forever.

“The middle room was the smallest, and there wasn't enough storage space for clothes, so we left our suitcases open on the floor. Try for the other rooms if you can, tho as our whole trip was booked through a travel agent, I've no idea if they cost more.”

“All the rooms have the same view and are the same size. I think they have different bed sizes. The room on the far right had a king size bed.”
