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. The facilities are of the highest standard and the "Man Cave" is just fabulous if you like old stuff. My wife and I would highly recommend Blairgowrie House to couples who are looking... More

From the time we arrived until we left, we felted very welcomed by Annette & Kelvin who have done a wonderful job in maintaining this beautiful house & garden. Very comfortable room with lots of detail to furnishings and comfort. The location was good - rural but not far from town by car..

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...
