From the collection of Dave Fuller, longtime Rotorua resident, who died in Rotorua on 2 January 2013.

'Distinguished Guests stayed at Waiwera House, among them were : Lord and Lady Jellicoe  in 1919, The Govenor General & Lady Alice Ferguson in 1929 and Sir Charles Statham (Speaker of the House) in 1930'.  Mr Garlick remembers picking up General Sir Charles Ferguson, in the late 1920s, from the hotel and driving him around the district.
