Lake Rotoroa Lodge Review

This truly private haven sheltered beneath tall trees beside Lake Rotoroa was built for "gentlemen travelers" in the days when horse and buggy was the local transport, and this was the main track south. Now it lures anglers with a combination of old-fashioned personality and new-fangled luxury, from the brass beds and hunting trophies to the expert fishing guides and outstanding wine list.
