    Lovely big home, which suited our big family but some areas needed 'cleaning attention' - showers/kitchen - the kitchen needed some home comforts - there were only 2 pots - in poor condition - no serving dishes - dirty dishcloths and none to replace them - no extra's like gladwrap, foil, salt and pepper!!! - disappointing - certainly not a family set up like the 'book a bach' we usually rent - lawns needed mowing - piles of leaves needed cleaning up - on a plus - great comfy beds - plenty towels

    Owner/manager responds:

    Thanks for your feedback. We have got regular deep cleaning schedule, so are the work of mowing and leaves cleaning. We stress this again, as far as food safety concern, we do not provide any food in our property, which includes seasonings. We have already added a new set of pots and new cleaning stuff. Thanks for your attention to details, and we also hope this does not affect your enjoyment here in a brand-design lodge with a spectacular view of mountains, lake, thermal and sunset.

    The location and the lodge was very important as we wanted a place that could show our whanau and friends the beauty of Rotorua. The views are amazing and lodge is very comfortable. A great hide away and would love to come and stay again. Thank you:)

  • Mum's weekend away

    Mum's weekend away. We (six Mum's) had a wonderful time. Home is spacious and warm with the most spectacular views over the city. So lovely, we did not venture into town for dinner, instead dined in. We all agreed we would book again at Panorama Lodge. :-)
