I stayed at Peppers during a business trip and was astounded by the incredible location and views. It's on the most stunning lake, breathtaking views and the house itself is unbelievable. The accommodation is a little strange, the main house has been divided into rooms, they're huge but sadly in need of an update. However the cabins and lodges were...

Thanks for a great review...mostly :) Just a couple of points. The main house has been refurbished just two years ago with new carpets, paint, curtains, floors refurbished, furniture recovered etc so I can't agree with the comments of it needing an update :( We have over the last two years refreshed all of our suites too. Yes correct in...

We stayed in one of the lake front cottages which has amazing views. The cottage is nice and large, with a private veranda with a hot tub (empty when we arrived, but were told we could fill it up if we wanted to use it), a full kitchen with washing machine and dryer, and a sitting room with fire place...

Hello to our TripAdvisor readers. I would like to clarify a few things here :) One of the hot tubs at the cottage needs to be filled as you require it so it's not that we didn't intentionally fill it for our guests. This is a way our tubs can remain chemical free which i think is wonderful. Yes we...

Stunning views and location! Quiet and comfortable cottage we stayed in with nice veranda and outdoor jacuzzi; main building is very stylish, extremely photogenic, inside and outside. Absolute lakefront, you can walk down to the water, there is small chapel and even a few ponies walking around. You can take hundred pictures easily! Negatives - Dinner is overpriced for what's...

We are very happy you enjoyed your stay here at Peppers on the Point however I would like to respond to a couple of your comments.

I went back and forth about finding accommodation in Rotorua for awhile - I couldn't make up my mind about staying in town vs. on farther out (Peppers is on the lake, about a $14 USD taxi ride from town). In the end and having seen the downtown area, I'm very glad I decided to stay at Peppers - a...

Peppers on the Point is beautiful! We were recently there for a wedding and the whole venue was breathtaking. We stayed in the Lake Villa and the home was amazing. Our bed was so comfortable and the best furnishing were used throughout. We woke up to seeing 2 donkeys out our window and further along were some miniature ponies. We...

This was one of our best hotel experiences. Peppers on the Point is magnificently situated on Lake Rotorua and contains a number of guest houses (cottages). We were greeted by Andrew, the facility director, and the welcome was warm. Our cottage was spacious, comfortable and contained all the amenities that one could hope for. The food during our stay was...

Spent three lovely nights at Peppers on the point. Good spot to base family for touring the area including Hobiton and various others within one hour drive. Peppers is 1920's converted lodge with a lovely aspect over the lake and less smelly (sulphur waft) than Rotorua itself. The rooms are more like mini apartments and are very well presented. Breakfast...
