Wonderful home to stay in. I'm a solo traveller and so appreciated the comfort, friendliness and home cooking in Ron and Avril's lovely B&B. Extra help with sorting onward journey, phone calls, pickup and lift to and from bus, packed lunch, laundry etc. the place to stay when on the North Shore.

I have had the great pleasure of staying with Ron and Avril twice for block courses at Massey University (so close by). They really take you into their home as a part of the family while the accommodation is also superb. The extras of support for my endeavors, a packed lunch and the evening meal made my stays - after... More

We very much enjoyed our stay. Avril and Ron made us feel welcome and very much at home. We even met their grandchildren. The rooms here are very pleasant and the beds comfortable. Would definitely recommend Tru North to everyone.

We stayed with Ron & Avril on 2 & 3 April 2013. They were delightful and helpful hosts. Their place is very clean and well maintained. Whilst it's not exactly in the city, if you are driving, it is only a 20 minutes drive from city centre. Also, they provide dinner at a reasonable cost and it tastes way better... More

Clean, tidy, and comfortable house with wonderful hosts Ron and Avril. I will definitely return to Tru North if I travel up north in future. Perfect short term accommodation for Massey students attending block/contact course in Massey Albany campus.
