Beautifully presented and in a lovely location. All food supplied was super fresh. They even provide home made cake & biscuits and a bowl of fresh fruit. Owners are super friendly and so are their dogs and one eyed cat. I was quite disappointed though when I found out this was actually a B&B. The walls are very thin and you can hear everything in the next room (which is their kitchen/lounge). You have a private bed, bathroom & kitchette but the patio and lounge is shared with the owners and/or other guests. The rooms do face west which makes them very hot in the afternoon and there is no air-conditioning (only a standard fan). It would be nice to leave the windows open but you can't because there are no fly screens and heaps of mosquitoes come in at night. The rooms are big though and have a glorious outlook. Beautiful place and worth a visit but be prepared with shared lounging areas and close the windows at dusk.

Response from AsteliaLodge, Owner at Astelia Lodge
Responded 21 Mar 2020
Thanks for your positive comments about the food, view etc. We were a bit puzzled by your expectation that we were offering self-contained units away from the main property. I can find nothing on our own website, , or indeed Booking.com or Expedia, to suggest we are anything but a B&B. Our photos reflect the arrangement of our two guest rooms and their location. We generally only book out both rooms at the same time to adult family groups or friends, so in line with that policy you were the only guests staying, effectively (apart from our presence as hosts) having the place to yourselves. I’m sorry you thought the kitchen buzz intrusive. Previous guests have found the sounds and aromas of food preparation a source of comfort and a welcome part of the overall B&B experience. We have considered fly screens however we think covering the windows with mesh would spoil both the character of the rooms and the view. It was unfortunate that there were some mosquitos during your stay, this is the first year we had any at all (lasting a mere week or so) and we can only attribute this to a changing climate.

A return visit to stay with Mandy and Andrew because we enjoyed it so much first time round. What a welcoming hospitable pair. Andrew cooked a lovely 3 course meal on our arrival and breakfasts were just what we like - fresh fruit, muesli etc, and good coffee. We had some lively conversation with many points of interest and good advice about what was good to see in the area, which we followed up over our stay. The setting of Astelia Lodge is delightful, lovely views, space and spaciousness for guests and hosts, large comfy beds, a well designed and useful kitchen area, excellent WiFi, and plentiful sitting areas and no smell of sulphur. What’s not to like. Many thanks to you both for your welcome.

My husband and I have just spent two nights here and it really has been the highlight of all the places we have stayed during our tour of New Zealand. Stunning but warm and welcoming accommodation in an incredibly beautiful and peaceful setting.....we really did not want to leave. There were so many little welcoming and thoughtful gestures and we loved the warm welcome from the four-legged family as well as Mandy and Andrew. Enjoying the complimentary, delicious wine, under the stars was idyllic. Thank you both for your welcome and wonderful "northern" friendliness. We have made some special memories!

Beautiful location tucked up against an amazing backdrop. Couldn't ask for a more comfortable and clean alternative to the plethora of motel madness in Rotorua. Only a 20 minute drive outside the city is this B&B lovers paradise. Very quiet and peaceful grounds surrounded by farm lands and open country. Can't speak highly enough of Mandy's cooking skills and presentation, absolutely astounding. Wish we could have stayed longer but very appreciative that we found this awesome little hidden gem! Thanks Andrew and Mandy!
