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. We arrived to smell of fresh bread baking and sun bouncing around the sheep covered hills of their property. Breakfast is delicious and we opted to have dinner with our hosts on... More

Alan and George made me feel so welcome the moment I arrived, as did Bess and Tui the most gorgeous dogs. On my first evening I went with Alan to feed the various animals.

After a 10 hour flight +3.5 hours drive, Georgina greeted us with a warm welcome and showed us into the room. Despite the tiredness and the oh-so-comfy bed, Georgina and Alan invited us to go with them to feed the animals (goats,sheeps,chickens,alpacas,pigs) which was one of the highlights of our trip. They also provided boots which were thoughtful of them.... More

A wonderful stay, in early March.

I have always wanted to stay at a B&B farmstay and this made all my dreams come true. Not only is the farm itself absolutely wonderful, but the hosts, George and Alan (and Bess and Turi (spelling?) made our stay even more perfect.

Lakeview Heights was a great B&B to spend our time in when at Rotorua. The breakfast was wonderful! Before breakfast we went out with Alan and Georgina to watch and help feed all their animals, like sheep, pigs, alpaca, cows, chickens and goats. Their dogs are very friendly too! Their farm is up on top of a hill just north... More

This is a farmstay - a homestay with a difference - quality, comfort and a warm welcome, not only by hosts George and Alan, but by their delightful animals: sheep, alpacas, goats, pigs, cows, hens and dogs.
