The owners of the lodge were super friendly and went out of their way to make our stay enjoyable. The rooms were very spacious and had all the amenities needed for the stay. The owners even provided fresh eggs from their chickens. We stayed with 2 children and they loved it too. Don't listen to other reviews about how unfriendly...

Not far from downtown Rotorua, this place was a last-minute booking and fortunately they had availability. Loved the room and how simple the layout was. Bed was comfortable. And learned more about the local area thanks to the great hosts! Would definitely recommend this to others to stay at. I know if I'm ever in the Rotorua area again, I...

I have to give 3 dots based on the lovely hosts. But this is definitely a budget option. The bed was very comfortable and the linen fresh. The sofa wasn't comfortable, and there was no tray to cook anything in the oven. It's on a busy road, but I wear earplugs so never an issue. If you are driving out...

After a hard day at Hobbiton we relaxed at the Hideaway with a bbq and cold drinks in a beautiful setting overlooking the garden. The hosts were terrific with awesome advice on what to do and where to get the best dinner for our bbq. The lodges were comfortable and the relaxing atmosphere made it a great night's stop.

We arrived early at the Rotorua Hideway Lodge but were greeted warmly by Fiona and Chris. We had a lovely chat for a while (they're English too) and they gave us some great ideas for things to do around the area. Our room was lovely and clean and the beds were really comfortable, which was much appreciated after a number...

Our group of 18 people of 4 families with 8 adults and 10 children (age 5 to 12) stayed here in 4 family rooms for 2 nights in December. The room was small...but got everything we needed. Furniture was a bit dusty though. The owners responded efficiently and effectively to our emails. The children's playground was awesome and the kids...

This is the second time we have stayed and we loved it. Fiona and Chris do an amazing job of looking after us. It was our Christmas with family and after dinner we returned to find Christmas Lights and Tree in/around our unit. There was so much to do for our wee grandson - he had an amazing time playing...
