Had a lovely weekend, Jeff and Janice were great hosts. It was great we could bring our little fox terrier. Our room was beautifully presented, serviced daily and comfortable. Homebaking, sweets, tea, coffee cold drinks, beer, wine available to guests 24/7. Beautiful setting, a great place to stay when you want to escape the busyness of life!

For me the best accommodation on our 3 Week-New Zealand-Trip. Jeff and Janice are lovely people. It feels like coming home, when you arrive Springwater Lodge. The rooms are furnished beautiful.

Had a great weekend stay at Springwaters. Never stayed at a B & B before and Im now a convert. Beautiful setting, well set up and awesome hosts in Jeff & Janice. Nothing was too much of a worry and the little extras (mmmm baking!!) were well appreciated. I'll be back

We had a great stay here. Janice and Jeff are the perfect hosts. Booking a tour to Hobbiton movie set- no problem, early breakfast due to early departure- no problem. Beautiful views to the lake, quiet location and a grandious breakfast. Don´t forget to view the spring nearby! Only minutes away from Rotorua.

What makes this B&B special for us is the true hospitality and kind hosts, Jeff & Janice. We felt like home, and both would make sure we were taken care of, checking on our pick ups, asking how we were, making lovely breakfast with eggs, sausages. Sitting with us over breakfast and chatting with other guests, banana cake for tea,...

This is by far the best B&B we have ever stayed in. Jeff and Janice are superb hosts, who are very knowledgable about the area, and they basically share their house with the guests. The property itself is spacious, each room has its own patio, and there is a well stocked guest lounge with free drinks. Breakfast was very nice,...

There are plates, glasses, cutlery in which you are welcome to use. Otherwise, Katherine is happy to prepare you a delicious meal. This may be as simple as a sandwich or a full three course dinner - Beef barbecued steak to Japanese Curry - just let her know what you would like. Prior dinner reservations are helpful otherwise you will have a limited choice. Situated across the road from Lake Rotorua you are provided with views of the lake and Mokoia Island. In the back ground - the hills of Mt Tarawera and the city lights.Walk 500m the the famous Redwood forest and Hamurana Springs track. Both are amazing. The forest is make up of large Sequoia trees and a beautiful clear stream flowing from the spring out into the lake. Several types of birds and ducks live in this area as do of course our famous trout. You cannot buy trout in NZ - you must catch your own!Lake Rotorua is famous for trout fishing, but in our area also famous for having hundreds of 'black swans'. A 'country' 9 hole golf course is located alongside the springs walk - we have golf clubs available for those wanting to play a round.Family groups are welcome at the home of Katherine and Steve.
