We stayed here for 2 nights on a 7 week trip in NZ. From the start we were made to feel special. Charlie and Diana are excellent hosts, and made us feel part of the family. Our room was very comfortable and breakfast fantastic. We highly recommend this B&B.

Dianne and Charlie greeted us warmly and we were invited to tea and biscuits before we had turned around! Charming family and a beautiful location and the evening meal and breakfast on the sunny verandah were "par excellence". And such a comfortable bedroom.

We were pleased you could relax after travelling on the road then enjoy an elfresco dinner at Shailers. Charlie enjoys being able to provide freshly picked vegetables from his garden. All the best...

Me, my wife and my son stayed at Shailer's for 3 nights during our short trip to New Zealand and I must say that it exceeded all our expectations. Let's start with the location. It is situated in the picturesque Waikato county on about 180 acres of farm land. Beautiful country side views, serene yet close enough to Hamilton city.... More

We were made welcome from the minute we arrived. Charlie and Dianne are wonderful hosts in a beautiful location and superb house. Unexpected arrival of guests arriving a day early to meet some one staying did not cause any fluster. Dianne took it all in her stride and dinner was able to include them. This is a wonderful traditional style... More

I travel frequently for business and stay in many hotels and B&B's. Shailers is one of the most memorable. It's comfortable, clean but, most importantly, I was looked after extremely well by Diana - especially since I wasn't particularly well for 2 of my 4 nights there. You are guaranteed a warm welcome here andI will be rebooking next time... More

We were looked after in style by Charlie and Dianne. Our visit was far too short. Accommodation was excellent surrounded by well maintained gardens. Would recommend to anyone who wants to be well looked after in very pleasant surroundings by charming and attentive hosts.
