Your Backyard Inn hosts; The McLeay Family, have been passionate about delivering warm service to Rotorua visitors since the day it they put out the welcome mat in 1986.
Conveniently set in four acres of green park-like grounds in Rotorua’s wondrous backyard, we’re flanked by awesome sporting and recreational amenities, including The Rotorua Aquatic Centre and Kuirau geothermal park.
The Backyard Inn is an eclectic mix of dorm, camping and chalet-style accommodation. Its unique design makes it an ideal facility for large groups. Hence it’s a popular base for sports, school and tour groups. With Wi-fi, meeting facilities and a travel centre it’s also a great choice for a conference with heart!
