Doolan's Country Retreat offers peace and tranquillity in a uniquely architectural designed brick and timber home. Our home is tastefully styled so no room is the same nestled in ten acres of idyllic country setting, with many charming features. When you check in you are offered afternoon tea with delicious home baking and our breakfasts are full of local fresh produce and homemade jams, muesli,yoghurt and fruit salads as well as a hot cooked dish of the day.

Doolan's Country Retreat is a truly peaceful location to unwind and rejuvenate the soul. You can take in the views of Lake Rotorua, walk through the beautiful gardens and even feed the donkeys. We love to encourage you to dine in Rotorua with its diverse range of eateries or enjoy a true Kiwi delicacy; the “takeaway” under the stars at our outdoor dining area. Pour a wine, sit back and enjoy the lights of Rotorua in the distance and spot the Southern Cross and Milky Way.

You retreat the moment you turn into our driveway and wind your way up the hill to our home with the best panoramic view. You are surrounded by country side yet only a 5 minute drive to the local village of Ngongotaha and 15 minutes to Rotorua CBD.

We do not offer television in any of the bedrooms so you can ensure you retreat, relax and chat. We offer Sky TV in the main lounge area especially for nights when our mighty All Blacks are playing. We want you to experience our spacious open plan home and garden with many spaces available to take a moment from your busy schedule. There are tea and coffee facilities available in your rooms and in the kitchen; however there are no cooking facilities. You can also have your own astronomy and garden guide with a wealth of local knowledge and best itineraries on offer to ensure your stay is a memorable one!

  • The quality of everything about Doolan's Country Retreat is of the highest nature. Christine, the owner and hostess, is magnificent. She is patient beyond belief; constantly informative and, in general, a most pleasant person. She is, also, an accomplished cook. The accommodations are superb. The breakfasts are included and are delectable. We recommend it MOST highly. 5

  • We loved our stay at Doolan's Country Retreat. Christine was an excellent hostess - her home is beautiful on a gorgeous piece of property. She gave us great recommendations of things to do while in Rotorua and she even washed our swimsuits for us after our visit to the Polynesian Spa. Highly recommend a stay at Doolan's while in the Rotorua area. 5
