We attended a birthday party in Cambridge and as all the motels were booked we chose to stay here. We are so pleased we did! We were put in the Chocolat room which is extremely comfortable, well appointed & lovely and warm. French doors open on to a deck where we could have a drink before going out. Kelvin and... More

We were on our way from Auckland to Taupo and unexpectedly could leave an extra day early for the long weekend, so picked this B and B. We stayed in the Tulip room with a Queen bed which I picked from the photos on their website. Beautifully appointed room with a comfortable bed, lovely sofa, TV, tea and coffee facilities... More

The rooms were of a high standard with excellent facilities and very good quality linen and towels. One room was large , ensuite with access... More

We only had a brief stay at this lovely country property which is a short drive from the centre of Cambridge where there are shops and restaurants. We had a good sized room with access to a patio area and there was a good ensuite bathroom. The décor is a little quirky with each room being 'themed'.

This is such a lovely place to stay. If you like peace and quiet, you will love this place and the hosts are lovely and friendly too.

Annette and Kelvin were such lovely, accommodating hosts. They went the extra mile to ensure we had everything we needed to make our stay enjoyable. Kelvin even spent a great deal of time scraping down the BBQ for us and making sure it was clean. The continental breakfast was generous and superb. The room was beautifully appointed and all the...
