Our family greatly enjoyed our two night stay at Lakeview Heights Farm Stay. The location is just beautiful; the view from their farm above Lake Roturua was one we'll always remember. Alan and Georgina were welcoming hosts and our children were thrilled to walk the farm the last morning of our stay with George. Highly recommend this B&B.

We so enjoyed our two night stay with Alan and George, it was like visiting family you rarely see but feel completely at home with. The house is as warm and welcoming as your hosts. The views over the lake are beautiful. We stayed in the Rotorua room, plenty of space and a great shower. We enjoyed a cup of...

We loved our two night stay at Lakeview Heights! Alan & George are wonderful hosts who made us feel welcome. They were great to chat to and recommended some things to do in Rotorua including the Matai Moari Village cultural show which was outstanding. Highlight was feeding all the gorgeous animals! The view of Lake Rotorua is amazing, comfy bed,...

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.

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.
