“Couldn't be better”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2013

Rena is a lovely hostess, kind & gracious & she cooks a lovely roast dinner. The gardens a truly lovely & the house is warm and spacious. Lovely stay, location is perfect for the town centre with no problems from the trains, would be ideal for a family or couple so highly recommend.

Room Tip: ensuite room would be good

This place felt like a home from home especially in the middle of winter. Reena and John were very welcoming hosts and we found a lot in common. The whole place was nice and warm, the bed very comfortable and to have such a large lounge to relax in was just wonderful. There is so much to do in and around Feilding and Reena is well up on all that is going on. Its only a very short walk to the shops, restaurants and museums. Go on a Friday and book up for the saleyeards tour - its unique!

A work mate and myself were working in Fielding and the accommodation had been arranged for us. We stay at a fair few motels, lodges, conference venues and this was lovely. They were very helpful and the breakfast was excellent. Lovely fresh produce and a homemade rhubarb and apple compote on my porridge was just great. The fresh eggs and yummy toast highly recommended. They were great breakfast company. One of the best beds I've slept in for ages. Great central location.

We received a very warm welcome from Reena & John on our second visit to this excellent B & B. Everything we could want was in our spotlessly clean and attractive suite. We enjoyed dinner and drinks with our hosts on a couple of occasions. There is plenty of aroha in the Aroha B & B. We highly recommend this accommodation.

We found ourselves in Feilding almost by accident due to a last-minute change of plans. Finding the Aroha B&B was a very lucky break. Reena & John were fantastic hosts and looked after us very well. The room & ensuite bathroom were very well-kept, and WiFi access was available. John pointed out several places we could try for dinner after our arrival. Reena prepared a great breakfast for us the next morning. Highly recommended overall.

The Aroha B&B is a wonderful place to stay if you end up in Feilding. Reena and John were very friendly and welcoming, and offered us drinks, tea, and coffee. They also took time to recommend some good options for dinner and area activities. Our room was nice, with an ensuite bath, free WiFi, and outdoor access so we didn't need to enter and leave through the main house. Breakfast in the morning was tasty and filling. Overall, Aroha offers pretty much everything you'd want to have in a good, friendly B&B. Great value for such a nice, warm stay!

A few comments about Feilding. We picked Feilding as a halfway point to break up the drive between National Park and Wellington. Feilding is a very small town. The kind of town where you don't lock the front doors. This is not a bad thing (we actually found it really quaint and comfortable), but I think in hindsight we may have picked a larger / more lively town for our stay. Everything (restaurants included) closes very early, and we didn't see many options for late-night activities. Again, this is what you'd expect out of a small town like Feilding, but it's just good to be aware of this so you can plan ahead (i.e. plan to eat dinner early, maybe buy a bottle of wine to bring back to your room instead of go to a bar, etc).

Thank you for going to the trouble of writing such a comprehensive review. I appreciate your kind comments about your stay at Aroha B&B. You are correct in your assessment of Feilding - it doesn't offer a night life like cities do, although we do have a very nice cinema. Restaurants like clients to come by 8.30pm during the week and 9pm on weekends. Yes, this information may be helpful for other travellers.
