Local homestay a winnerJune 29, 2009
Rotorua business Broekhaven Country Cottage has won the 2009 AA Spirit of Hospitality Award for bed and breakfasts.
The property was nominated by guests impressed by the hospitality owners Ed and Debbie Van Den Broek offer.
Broekhaven can accommodate just one group at a time. It was up against bed and breakfasts that have room for up to five groups, and the Van Den Broeks say this made the award even more special.
They attribute their success to the unusual animals they foster for the Rotorua SPCA; animals people can't often interact with.
Broekhaven donates part of its profits to the SPCA Haven Scheme.
