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.......

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 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

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...

When we arrived, the spa was already heated, and the very friendly hosts brought us plenty of muffins. The separate unit was very clean, comfortable and cozy, with a lot of attention to every detail. In short: a perfect place when you are visiting the area around Cambridge!
