Origins of Afternoon Tea

Dating back to early 19th century England, afternoon tea emerged as a delicate repast to bridge the gap between lunch and dinner. Typically savored around 4 p.m., it boasts an array of tantalizing treats crafted to appease the palate and satiate anticipation for the evening repast. At Hana Lodge, we continue this tradition, inviting you to immerse yourself in the quintessence of English culture.

Stayed one night. Hidden away in a large plot of land, it was an amazing experience. Rooms, food and services were top notch. Would stay again if I find myself down there again.

I had a delightful one-night stay at Hana Lodge during the Christmas season. The staff was incredibly friendly, creating a welcoming atmosphere. The hotel's serene environment, away from the city hustle, provided a comfortable retreat. Standing on the balcony, I enjoyed breathtaking views of Rotorua's lake, surrounded by beautiful landscapes of expansive lawns and bamboo groves. The restaurant offered a diverse and delicious array of fresh food. The hotel facilities were impeccably clean, reflecting a recent complete renovation. Hana Lodge is undeniably an excellent choice for anyone visiting Rotorua.
