We stayed one night and it was a wonderful experience. The day was very hot and the rooms had air conditioning which was absolute bliss. The rooms are super clean, beautifully decorated and well stocked. Better than any B&B we stayed before. I loved the little differences with the welcome message board with your name on it plus chocolates in... More

Our stay at Blairgowrie House was a very enjoyable experience. Annette and Kelvin are warm and friendly hosts who welcomed us into their home and really made our 3 nights with them unforgettable. Annette helped with suggestions of local restaurants and sightseeing which was very appreciated and Kelvin's "Man Cave" was filled with so many interesting projects, it is a... More

I am hard to please. This worked. Idyllic setting, comfortable and well appointed rooms. Beautiful shower room. Enjoyed the option of an intimate breakfast in our room followed by coffee in the garden. Wish I'd booked for the return trip. Well done Annette

After a long day travelling it was wonderful to arrive at this beautiful haven and be greeted so warmly by Annette and Kelvin. The suite was lavish and wonderfully appointed. Everything we could possibly need and more was available for us. Our hosts were charming and thoughtful, offering great advice about local restaurants and eateries along with expert tips about...

One of the best B&B's we have stayed in. The decor is Classic French and a lot of old-worldly charm, the hosts are genuinely down to earth, gregarious and caring. Peaceful, quiet and a perfect place to rejuvenate/recharge. Would recommend it to anyone wishing to explore and unlock the hidden beauty of Cambridge - a quaint town in the Waikato... More

We stayed in the Chocolate Room. The ensuite was pristine. The blackout curtains allowed a lovely sleep in. The house is full of interesting antiques. Our hosts couldn't have been kinder or more helpful. Tricky dietary needs were catered for.

I spent 3 nights at this perfect little B&B after finding it on TripAdvisor. I was in New Zealand to watch my daughter rowing on Lake Karipiro just near Cambridge and Blairgowire House was the ideal accomodation choice for me travelling from Australia on my own. The hosts were so charming and accomodating, the breakfasts were delicious, the house so... More

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 stayed here for one night to break the journey travelling from Auckland to new Plymouth. It's very different to the usual type of accommodation we stay in being small and owner run / managed. 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
