It's a quiet location, the owners are very friendly and helpful. The room was well furnished with a large and comfy bed, the owner had made sure the room was nice and warm for us on arrival on a cool winter evening. The continental breakfast was very good with lots to choose from. Highly recommend a stay.

We stayed here for two nights after arriving at Auckland airport. We arrived very late and our hosts were absolutely wonderful with greeting us (about 1am). They were up and prepared breakfast for us the next morning at 8. Russell was a wonderful painter and his works provided great conversation pieces. The room has a heater, and the bed was... More

As per other reviewers the location is great and Russell & Louise very friendly. I am surprised about the issue with breakfast as per Ed R as I would also have thought that this could have been provided to the room quite easily as was only fruit, cereal, toast and juice. The rom was lovely and warm when we arrived,... More

Beautiful setting with bush and river surrounding. Handy to town centre, 10 minutes from the airport and yet very quiet. Owner is an amazing portrait artist and NZers will especially appreciate much of his art. Yet, breakfast was advertised in the price and we had to get away for an early flight so were told we couldn't have breakfast as... More

This place has an amazing little secrete, the view off the balcony. Walking into River Vista off a suburb street once we got to our room it felt as if we were now in the middle of nowhere. The view of the Waikato River, blended into the surrounding bush & farm land was something special. The unit itself was very... More

My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights and it was great value and such a good sleep. We had a huge king bed and own private verandah overlooking the river which was gorgeous. The owners made us continental breakfast each morning which was excellent. We will definately stay there again if we are in hamilton.

A lovely accomodation, light, spacious rooms, with extra touches, and lovely bush and river views. Very peaceful. Lovely hosts and very good value. Would recommend highly for an alternative to a city centre accomodation.

It sits by the river and our room was facing the river with broader unobstruted views out to the hills and mountains afar. THere was nice touches in the room, includng bathrobes and soft rug to cuddle up on couch... More
