Very kind and helpful owners. Great welcome muffins. Great variety of available food. Clean and cozy. Quiet, away from main road. Peaceful neighborhood. Good quality bed. Outdoor spa looks tempting. Must come back in summer to try it. ;-)

Thank you for taking the time to write a great review for Muffin's self-contained B&B! The spa is really great in the winter too!!! (If you don't mind the cold before you hop in!) More

We stayed here one night on our way north from Wellngton. Chris was very welcoming and had muffins all ready for us when we arrived! The accommodation is a sweet guest house in her garden, with a superbly well stocked ktchenette with sink, microwave, and toaster, and packed with breakfast foods - bread, granola, jams, tea, coffee, juice, milk, honey.......

My first BnB stay...the best place ever. Beats all the hotels I've stayed at hands down. Our host Chris was so lovely and welcoming. Greeted with freshly baked muffins, fresh fruit...absolutely spotless, cosy and well appointed little cottage. The attention to detail and all the little touches, Chris has thought of everything! As for the private outdoor spa...devine!! Beautiful gardens... More

I have stayed here twice now, it is just the loveliest, cleanest place with the sweetest hosts. Home made muffins, wonderful selection of delicious treats. The garden is gorgeous and the spa pool on the private deck is devine!

I don't normally choose to stay in B&Bs because I'm a business traveller and want business facilities, but this accommodation was booked on my behalf. However, it turned out to be a great choice and I'd certainly go back. I was greeted with a plate of freshly baked muffins (delicious!) and got more each day - not great for the... More

This place is WONDERFUL! Chris brought us baked goods each morning (mince pies first, then blueberry muffins), plus a nice selection of yogurts, juice, milk, cold cereral and fruits. The cottage is cozy and complete, with comfortable beds. Cambridge is a lovely town that allowed us to visit Matamata (30 min) and Rotorua (55 min) easily, while being 'away' from... More

Prior to arrival, the owner Chris emailled to check about how we would like the rooms configured and as to dietary requirements etc which was a great start. On arrival we were warmly welcomed to a lovely little seperate apartment surrounded by fragrant gardens and in a quiet area of Cambridge. We appreciated the attention to detail, from the plethora...

This is the first time I have stayed in a B&B and if this sets the standard. This has opened up new accommodation options to me. I was in Cambridge for a wedding and the friendly hosts offered to do ironing and even to drop me off and pick me up from the reception venue! The separate unit is cosy... More
