Spent two nights with George and Alan in a lovely farm with sweeping views of the Lake. Very comfortable rooms for our family of 3 and our 23 year old daughter was thrilled to have her own large room, but the real joy is the dramatic location and all the animals. Alan took us around to meet goats, sheep, alpaca,...

My spouse and I spent two wonderful days staying with George and Alan. We were getting a little worn out on hotels and wanted something that felt a bit more home-y, and Lakeview was the perfect remedy. The location is secluded, the views are amazing, the food is yummy, and the hosts are warm and welcoming. Couldn't have asked for...

Thanks for a great review, Toby! We hope you really enjoyed the whole of your holiday in NZ and perhaps will visit again. By the way, the weather is dreadful at the moment - howling winds and torrential rain. What has happened to our summer this year? George and Alan

We had such a lovely time here. The view of Rotorua lake is beyond incredible - you will not find a better one in the entire area. Not only that, you are just a 4 min drive from the lake edge. Our hosts were so wonderful. We were invited to meet all the farm animals and even help feed them!...

We recently spent 3 nights at Lakeview Heights as we traveled around the north island. The farm itself is a beautiful house with great views of the lake set amid lush green landscape. Our party of four thoroughly enjoyed our stay and as the other reviewers have rightly highlighted, George and Alan are wonderful hosts. Farm fresh eggs, done to...

We stayed for just a night with George and Alan but they were very gracious and friendly. George cooked an incredible lamb dinner for us that was out of this world. The rooms were cozy and comfortable. We had great fun feeding the animals - particularly the lambs. Couldn't have been nicer.

We stayed at Lakeview Heights for 3 nights and had an absolutely amazing stay. I could not recommend this place more to anyone staying in the Rotorua area.
