Grace and David gave us a warm welcome with coffee and tasty homemade cake and provided us with plenty of useful information about Rotorua - city lights to be seen at nighttime. And they have doubtlessly the best alpacas in the garden!

This is a great place to stay on the hillside looking down on Rotorua. We stayed in the apartment, which came with a huge supply of food for breakfast. Great welcome from David and Grace with home made cake. The alpacas were interesting too.

We were lucky enough to have been booked into the gorgeous self-catering cottage in the grounds of this very nice B&B. Our hosts David and Grace were absolutely charming (we understood they had recently acquired the property). The cottage had everything we need for our 2 night stay, very comfortable and clean. Feeding the llamas was an absolute bonus.
