Mike and Peter were great hosts. Everything was very clean. Very nice breakfast. WIFI works perfect and is included in daily rate. We highly recommend this accomodation as it is also close to city centre. Easy to walk to restaurants, shops and Polynesian Spa in 10-15 minutes.

Neil & David Melborne, Australia. - 2015

Thanks for the locak knowledge. It makes for a great holiday.


Greg Auckland, New Zealand. - 2015

What a great place. Perfect location for restaurants, bars and shops, not to mention the beautiful Lake Rotorua and surrounding area. There is so much to do in and around here.
The whole place is spotlessly clean whether it's the guestrooms, lounge room or in the outdoor patio area and hot tub. The rooms are very well appointed including a mini-bar which was a nice surprise.
Mike and Peter are terrific hosts. It is really like staying with friends. It was wonderful to sit around on the deck or in the lounge room with Mike and Peter sharing a drink or two and listen to them enthuse about Rotorua. They are so knowledgeable about their city and the surrounding areas and attractions. Breakfasts were great - delicious and plentiful.
We were there for four nights but it went so quickly - will definitely return.


Rob & Tim Costa Rica. - 2015

Lovely stay in your home. Thanks for your warm hospitality. Come and see us in Costa Rica.


Phil and Ragil Wellington, New Zealand. - 2015

Stayed for 5 days and had a busy sightseeing agenda planned. Hosts Mike and Peter were very helpful with brochures and tips for getting the best value venues including having a range of vouchers for discounts. Due to pre-bookings we stayed in both rooms during our stay and whilst the room that had it's own ensuite and also opened onto the spa/back patio area was preferred the other room was of the same quality and no real inconvenience access the pool/garden area or bathroom. Morning breakfast, shared with the hosts and other room guest (if any), was always something to look forward to with a varied menu each day. Timing of the meal was according to your request. Free parking was immediately outside the front door. Only 5 minutes walk to the central city street so the car wasn't a necessity except when visiting the many attractions further afield.


Sean & Alan Auckland, New Zealand. - 2015

Wow - what a weekend! So central and so clean but above all the hosts go so out of their way to make your stay perfect. They have such a passion for what they do and take such pride in their place that the whole experience is fantastic. They have a great deal of knowledge and every recommendation given hit the sweet spot. Even though it's central it's so private and there is a lot of attention to detail but at the same time it is very homely and welcoming which I found extremely appealing. It's an awesome central base to use in order to see Rotorua's many wonderful attractions or alternatively merely to use to relax - great spa - and enjoy Mike and Peter's company. And by the way I also highly recommend booking Mike's amazing massage.


Lee Toronto, Canada. - 2014

What a great stay. The guys made me feel right at home and a very cozy and comfy stay it was! The only bad thing is I couldn't stay longer! I definately will be back. ★ ★ ★ ★ ★


Tim SPenrith, United Kingdom. - 2014

Great hospitality - many thanks. And quite an education too! I'll be back...


Carter Brisbane, Australia. - 2014

Accommodating and knowledgeable
Mike and Peter are wonderful hosts. The room was well appointed and felt like a nice hotel room which is sometimes not the case when staying at a B and B. The property is well located and convenient to downtown. My hosts were particularly knowledgeable about all the local sites and were very helpful in securing reservations.


Jiao Sydney, Australia. - 2014

Mike and Peter are very friendly and helpful, and they make you feel like a VIP.

Glenn & Wayne Cairns, Australia. - 2014

We stayed 3 nights at Guysers. Mike & Peter are helpful, friendly hosts who went out of their way to make our stay pleasant. The room we had was tastefully decorated & comfortable. The breakfasts are very nice. The outdoor courtyard & spa are a welcome facility after a day out sightseeing. Guysers is perfectly located very close to the city centre.


Chris and Kevin Palmerston North, New Zealand. - 2014

Guysers was the first stop on our 2 week holiday to Northland. Great welcome from Peter and Mike - these guys make you feel right at home and go the extra mile to ensure you have excellent knowledge of the district. The B & B was a super oasis to come back to after a day out sightseeing and just relaxing with our hosts. Breakfast was AAAA+ -diets have now begun!!
Thanks guys for such a pleasant stay, and we look forward to seeing you again in the near future. We will certainly recommend your place to our friends.
Best cheers, Palmy Guys.

Martin and Patrick Edinburgh, United Kingdom. - 2013

Mike & Peter were great hosts for our stay in Rotorua. They made it feel like a home away from home. Their attention to detail was superb - comfortable room, clean spa and great breakfast. The B&B is centrally placed and within walking distance of the town centre. They also gave us all the local tourist information and restaurant recommendations (including one of the best Indian meals we've had!). We would heartily recommend it, and hope to go back some day.
Thanks for the great stay. Wish we could stay longer.


William and Paul Auckland, New Zealand. - 2013

Broke the habit of a life time and didn't stay in motels on this trip in favour of B&B's and home stays. Guysers was an excellent choice of B&B. Mike and Peter were great hosts and their superb local knowledge had me wanting to visit places I had never heard of which is saying something after many holidays in Rotorua. Their home is comfortable and welcoming. A soak in the hot tub after a full day was a particular delight, slept like a baby in the very comfortable bed. A place to recommend and deserves a repeat visit.


Curtis and Philip San Clemente, California. - 2013
