“Has potential”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2013

Stayed here for one night as a couple in the Lily Room. This was a front room and noise was not an issue.
Overall our stay was adequate with a comfortable bed, lovely clean white sheets which I love and a flat screen tv to watch from bed. The room has beautiful lighting and free wifi. Breakfast was a full continental breakfast with lots of options.
Unfortunately there were a couple of issues with the cleanliness of the bathroom and bedroom window sills that brought the overall experience down. The owner said this was due to renovations her husband was doing outside the bathroom. The owner was very apologetic and gave us a discount on our fee. This was unneccesary but a generous offer and indication of the good intentions carried by the owner.

Why would a person like Jean H want to rubbish a place in Hawera . It's a really nice place out of the rush and
busil of the city's On arrival it feels like home just reading visiters book well worth reading as people all over world have stayed Food is excellent no doubt Christina & Murray have had wonderful people stay and still call back for a coffee when passing though as the door is always open. Clean tidy, friendly place to stay if family

Christina and Murray are lovely hosts and we had the impression that Christina really likes running this B&B. The room was very clean and beautifully arranged. The only drawback is the street which is quite noisy due to the milk trucks (but many motels in the same street, with the same problem). But we forgot it after five minutes...because of the beautiful garden, which is on the other side than the road. When asking for an organic store, Christina proposed to pick our salad and vegetables in her own vege garden. Yummi! In the morning we were surprised with freshly cooked rhubarb compote, because we mentionned that we liked it. We highly recommend this B&B, its not too expensive and more than worth its money. We will certainly come back to the villa if we are coming back in the region!
