Guest reviews for Western Panorama

We encourage reviews. Our review policy.
Stayed June 2022

A wonderful sized house for our 4 generation family holiday, very convenient having 4 toilets and easy access for elderly. A warm house with extra heaters supplied for us downstairs in winter was much appreciated. Thank you.

Stayed May 2022

Downstairs level 1 shower dial couldn’t move past cold, had to use upstairs shower. Unable to access outside through sliding door had to go right around from side door between the bedrooms. Maybe a chromecast for downstairs tv Not all lights had lightbulbs throughout the house Lack of crockery, pots, pans and oven dishes, this needs to be advertised so guests can take extra necessities. Clothes dryer and bbq would be great to have in the house especially for big groups. Overall the house was amazing and suited our needs, beds, duvets, pillows and electric blankets were marvellous and comfy. The house was beautiful, warm and welcoming absolutely loved our stay and the view both day and night was breathtaking.

Stayed March 2022

Was a lovely big big home we really enjoyed our stay here the kids didn’t want to leave so much space beds were lovely and comfortable we will be booking again in future

Stayed January 2022

Lovely view, great stay for a large group.

Stayed December 2021

On arrival the house was immaculate. It suits a large family or group of people. Enough room to find your own private space within this very spacious home. It is a little dated but very comfortable. We all enjoyed our stay. Thank you

Stayed June 2021

Holes in walls,no wardrobes doors on,mice droppings on bed,ants on benches everywhere,rotten upstairs veranda,yard a mess,nice views,big house for big families but they need to fix the place up.

Bachcare replied

Thank you for taking to time to provide your feedback. We are delighted to let you know that the veranda and general house maintenance has been attended to since your stay. We were happy to hear you enjoyed the view and space that Western Panorama has to offer.

Stayed July 2021

Fantastic for a group of families or sporting team as was our need. Ideally suited what we needed. Beds really comfy.

Stayed July 2021

Big property with lots of space for groups. Plenty of space for 10 of us, and lots of room for the kids to run around. Rather quirky with mixed asthetic. Not flash, could do with some updating but comfortable. Heating was effective and welcomed. Property manager had popped it on prior to our arrival so it was lovely to come in to a nice warm house. Brilliant view. Effective showers. No outdoor space/garden. If you booked in summer you would have access to the large deck shown in the photos but this is not accessible in winter. Overall a good stay.

Stayed January 2021

Western Panorama was an easy stay. Plenty of space to cater for a large group (10 pax) and close to city centre. Pamphlets provided of activities in and around Rotorua made it easy to plan our days. I do wish the TV worked for us and light bulbs in the living space for better lighting during the night

Stayed December 2020

Awesome view the beds very comfy and plenty of garage space for the vehicles and toys thanks so much

Stayed December 2020

Large sized property which worked well for two families of four. The property is comfortable and clean, but a bit tired generally. We experienced an issue with many lightbulbs in many of the rooms either being missing, blown (or perhaps the light sockets no longer work). This made the rooms very dark in the evening, especially the lounge which detracted from being able to socialise with the family we were holidaying with. Noisy neighbours over the road which was rather concerning in terms of language and behaviour.

Bachcare replied

Thank you for your valuable feedback Richard. We have replaced any lightbulbs which needed replacing and had the fuse box fixed. We will pass along your feedback to the owner of the property and are glad you enjoyed the size of the property which is great for families.

Stayed October 2020

Great accommodation for our group. Plenty of space and priced well. Good level of cookware in the kitchen made catering for numbers easy

Stayed October 2020

House layout was definitely quirky but the large open plan kitchen/ dining/ lounge area was perfect for our group. Plus the different rooms were very entertaining for our young children to wander around. Very clean on arrival and had everything we needed.

Stayed June 2020

Place is great, clean and cozy with everything you need and a great manager. We had the whole house as we had over 10 people and we couldn’t have asked for anything more. Thanks so much

Stayed March 2020

Really like the concept and layout of the property for larger groups, allows good space etc however does need some TLC and attention to broken items/fixtures. Was close to our reason for visit and had all amenities we needed.

Bachcare replied

Thanks for your review Fiona and we're glad you enjoyed the property. We've passed on your valuable feedback to the property owner and hope to see you in the future.

Stayed December 2019

Great property, Beautiful location and close to all the activities we had planned for the kids !

Stayed October 2019

This bach is affordable for the number of people that can stay there however it would be best not to expect too much. I would suggest not using the downstairs rooms if avoidable. It's great in terms of size and probably good for families however it was not cleaned to a high standard.

Bachcare replied

Hi Janelle, we really appreciate your feedback and we are working with the holiday manager to to ensure that the cleanliness is up to standard. We hope that you are happy with the resolution that the feedback team have offered and we have taken your comments onboard and relayed these to the owner so the necessary work can be completed.

Stayed September 2019

Living area was great for a large group. Basement rooms were hard to access with younger children. The house is not advertised clearly. I was expecting a 3 story house, not a 2 story house was a basement which you access via a garage. We had many issues which the house manager did his best to solve.

Bachcare replied

Hi Nicole, we really appreciate your feedback and we have amended the listing to reflect this. It's great to hear that your holiday manager was on hand to resolve the issues and I hope we came to an acceptable resolution in your conversations with the feedback team. We look forward to seeing you again for a future stay at one of our properties.Thanks!

Stayed August 2019

Great open space for our family group, good lounge and dining seating and spaces, loved the views, foyer was a bonus for getting shoes and jackets on and off with the bad weather we had on one day.

Stayed July 2019

We found the house in Mountain Road suited our family requirements very well as the lounge/kitchen/dining area was a brilliant size and had great views of Rotorua and had plenty of sun. The bedrooms that we used on levels 2 and 3 were also a good size and very comfortable. However, the house was 'tired' and there were several minor things that needed attending to i.e. lights not working, induction hob not up to power, kitchen tap waste pump overflowed from roof, level 2 shower gully trap not draining efficiently. Also the cleaning cost was excessive given that the house was not 100% clean, linen was also expensive but it was good linen. Overall, it was a good house and location and we would certainly recommend it to others.

Bachcare replied

Hi Claire, thank you for taking the time to leave a review! We appreciate that you have raised these issues with us and we are working on getting these items sorted for future stays. We apologise that the property was not to Bachcare standard and we are working with the holiday manager to resolve this. The linen that we use for bookings is from a commercial supplier hence it is of excellent quality and it's nice to hear that you found this to be the case!

Stayed May 2019

The view is great, living area was huge and worked well for us. The house is quirky. The plumbing was bizarre. Accommodation downstairs is far away from upstairs so not suitable for unsupervised young children.

Stayed February 2019

The property didn't meet our expectations, and we felt the amount charged was overpriced. There were a number of things broken, some of which the property managers knew about but failed to inform us. The bedroom layout wasn't as listed on the website which was a bit annoying when arriving late in the evening with tired grumpy preschoolers. All in all it's most definitely a bach, a little bit run down and tired, but we were charged like it was a holiday home. Location is close to the dodgy part of town but we felt safe, and the view was amazing. Loads of parking.

Bachcare replied

We really appreciate your feedback Angela and have addressed the broken items with our Holiday Managers. We've also updated the listing to reflect the actual bedroom layout. This property does sleep a large number of guests and has been priced to reflect this, and we're sure you'll agree the photos accurately portray the property and the map shows the location. We're glad you enjoyed your stay - and you're right, that view is amazing.

Stayed January 2019

Great place to stay. Wonderful views.

Stayed July 2018

Nice property and great location. Fabulous views. On the cold side. Could use extra heating. Bach very reasonably priced. Unfortunate about all the extra costs imposed by Bach care and cleaning.

Bachcare replied

Thank you for your feedback on our pricing! You will be glad to see that we have updated our website to show all costs broken down when you are looking to book, and as always, the full costs are disclosed before you confirm your booking. In terms of heating, the options available at a property are always listed within the amenities of a property. We're glad you loved the views, and hope to welcome you back again soon.

Stayed August 2018

Great views, we all loved waking up to the views and also the night views. Awesome place to stay and well suited for our netball team.
