It took us some time to find the place as it was not shown in our GPS. The cranky driver aka the husband commented that it's so "out of the way" but after our 2 nights stay, we didn't want to leave. Charlie greeted us warmly at the door. We took the deluxe room which is an ensuite (totally recommended!)... More

My family of 4 (kids are 6 and 4) had a wonderful stay, it was the best B&B we had in our 2-weeks trip (and that’s no mean feat, as the quality of accommodation everywhere in NZ was great – there was a good competition :-) ). The breakfasts and dinners, home-cooked by the owners, were delicious ; the welcome... More

We stopped here for one night on the last of our tour of the North Island being a nice 90 minute drive south of the airport. What makes this place seem special is the genuine welcome offered by the owners Dianna and Charlie as well as the beautiful, comfortable accommodation. Dianna greeted us with fresh tea / coffee and homemade... More

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.

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
