“Charming accommodation and staff”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 June 2012

My husband and I had 4 nights being thoroughly spoilt at Hamurana Lodge.Room, service , surroundings and delicious food were top class in thoughtful combination ! When I think back, top of the list would have been the lovely staff who were always there to meet and greet, help with local information and advice where to visit. Totally professional without being pushy - we felt like members of the family.Chef Charlie is the best in the region.
The grounds were stunning and a lovely drive to the entry was the start of the adventure.
Rotorua has a lot to offer. Autumn is a great time to visit with scenery enhanced with deciduous trees.Don't let anyone put you off visiting Rotorua but don't forget to treat yourself to stay at Hamurana Lodge ! Robbie F

Room Tip: All rooms are beautiful.

My family and I stayed at Hamurana Lodge for 5 days. All the members of the group enjoyed our stay very very much. The location of the property is exactly what I call idyllic, quiet, sceenic and the surroundings were well maintained. Well located for must do trips around Rotorua and beyond. Having been in many first-class hotels around the world this place compared on par if not better then most of them. The service to keep us cofortable was delivered in professionl yet relaxing style by the management and staff alike. The food was professionaly prepared and presented in a fasion, that left everybody impressed and most importantly it tasted fantasic. I want to to go back and recomment this place to anybody that appreciats a touch of class.

A unique experience which combined excellent food and wine for the adults and engaging activities for the children. The chef served up the most divine foie gras and luscious lamb. Even the breakfast was superb. This is a must!

We had a lovely stay at this wonderful lodge. It was only a 10 min drive outside Rotorua and was peaceful and quiet. Our room was huge and really comfy, with a lovely view. Jenna and the team were really friendly and helpful and always went out of their way to always say hello and ask if we needed anything. The dinner we had at the restaurant was amazing and the beef was the best we have ever had! I would recommend it to anyone looking to stay somewhere a little bit special.

Room Tip: A room looking over the lake has the best view.

I had the wonderful experience of staying at this Lodge on a recent trip to New Zealand. It is tucked away on a road a few miles from the centre of Roturoa and is accessed by a sweeping drive of lovely bushes and flowers and trees and lawns. The house and grounds are very elegant but I still felt at home...and wished it was my home!
From start to finish we were welcomed and treated to first class service and hospitality. There was a very friendly staff who made us feel relaxed . Jenna we felt we had known all our lives and nothing was too much trouble for her. Charlie the chef made us such a wonderful evening meal. Wines on offer were outstanding. Breakfast was amazing and such a lovely change from everything us we had had on our two weeks of travelling...smoked salmon, parma ham, delicious date cake, lovely cheeses.
Our room looked over the distant lake and countryside and was beautifully furnished and spacious. We had a family suite. A delightful touch was the photo of kiwis on our pillow saying 'Sweet dreams'.
A major disppointment was the fact that we had discovered it at the end of our stay and had only booked one night which meant we did not have time to fuly explore the facilities on offer or enjoy the outdoor pool. But next time we are in New Zealand we will be going back!

Room Tip: A room with a view.
