The facilities are impeccable, and Colleen and Murray make their guests feel like welcome friends. The rooms are bright and airy, each with a private patio; there is a sitting room/library, and Colleen's breakfasts are a perfect start to the day.

Very friendly, luxury bed and breakfast. Greeted by Colleen and Murray when we stayed there for 2 nights earlie this week. Welcoming tea and biscuits on arrival (the best since leaving the UK) and then helpful advice on where to eat and local places to visit.

Arrived in Rotorua after a long (and slightly wet) day on our motorbike. Feeling slightly exhausted, Coleen and Murrey's welcome could not have been more uplifting.
