My husband and I really enjoyed staying at Christine's place. It is a very beautiful and comfortable house, full of plants, trees and flowers around. The locations is perfect to sightseeing around Rotorua. The breakfast is delicious with many options and also a hot dish. Christine is extremely sweet and helpful helping us to enjoy the most of our stay. Unfortunately we just stayed one night, but we are already planning to come back and stay longer.

Christine welcomed us into her home, upon arrival and provided tea & cakes, before showing us to our room.There are beautiful gardens surrounding the property. There is a large open dining area with a fridge for guest use in the property.
We stayed in the 'fantail room' which was nicely decorated and included tea & coffee making facilities.The bathroom for the fantail room is across the hall.The shower is fixed to the wall & is quite high up.
Christine is very knowledgable of local attractions & has her own itinerary of free sites around Rotorua.Breakfast is served on a large table where all guests sit together.

This IS the place to stay if you enjoy beautiful comfortable surroundings, fantastic views and a brilliant host in the form of Christine! We have just finished a 3 night stay here and have enjoyed every minute! We were welcomed on arrival by Christine and encouraged to make full use of her wonderful home! It is situated on a quiet hillside overlooking Rotorua and the views from the property are outstanding! There are laundry facilities available and wonderful gardens to stroll around.
Breakfast is absolutely delicious and substantial with a hot option available. Bathrooms are spotless and bedrooms very comfortable.
The wonderful Christine was always on hand to guide and advise on the best places to go and things to see she and even provided an impromptu star gazing lesson one evening which was really fun!
Would definitely recommend staying here to anyone visiting Rotorua.

Room Tip: All rooms seem lovely and look over the beautiful gardens

Pity the tourists staying in the same kind of hotels in Rotorua that they could find anywhere in the world. Instead they could be staying in the green rolling hills above the city with magnificent views to the lake and mountains at Christine Doolan's delightful country house, enjoying far more comfort, tranquility and personal attention. Christine's house is large, light and modern, with traditional comforts and an unbeatable breakfast. The garden alone is worth the visit. This was the most enjoyable stay during our visit to New Zealand.

We spent 2 nights at Doolan's. Another reviewer described Christine as like visiting your favorite aunt. We agree. She was very helpful and pleasant. I forgot my camera when we left and realized when we were 2 hours away. Christine offered to drive halfway and she ultimately took the camera to an overnight express courier and it caught up with us the next day.

The B&B location is great with beautiful gardens and views of the surrounding hills. It is only a 10 minute drive into Rotorua. The home is all on a single level with guest rooms far away from the common areas. Breakfasts were hearty and tasty. Highly recommended.
