We stayed here on the way back from Auckland, hosts were very friendly. Beautiful house. We stayed in the Chocolate room, perfect for us. Hosts very accomodating as we had a large trailer and nothing was too much trouble. Close to Cambridge would recommend highly

Thank you for the review and lovely comments, pleased you found everything to your satisfaction. Our large parking area is a bonus and many find this so with trailers, large vehicles, even the odd campervan couples decide they want a larger bed for an extra good night sleep.

Beautifully situated in a quiet country setting but only minutes to Cambridge township. The Hosts were delightful, helpful and obliging. The room was everything we could have wished for with vintage furnishings and a luxurious bathroom. We ate (take out) on a table under the trees and wandered the garden in the evening. Breakfast was all we could have wished...

We enjoyed a stay of four nights in this lovely B&B. Nice central location from which it is easy to get to attractions such as the Waitomo Caves, Hobbiton and the Rotorua area. Gorgeous house and garden and beautifully decorated and very clean rooms. Our host Annette was extremely accomodating and very helpful with tour ideas and recommendations. Nice and...

We stayed for 4 days. Room (Chocolate) was large, clean, comfortable and inviting. It's a great location if doing things in the Cambridge/Hamilton area, convenient to the major highways and downtown area. The ensuite was also clean and updated. In addition to a great breakfast every day, we had access to a microwave so we didn't need to eat out...

We appreciate your taking the time to write a review, it is so helpful to all the undecided guests browsing accommodation, and uncertain where to visit. Your comment about the microwave is so true, as the rooms all have a dinner set for 2 table and chairs many guests choose to eat in their room or relax on the outdoor...

A delightful old house that has been beautifully restored in a quiet country location just a few k's from town. Charming hosts, excellent facilities and a very comfortable bed in a spacious room. Fascinating collection of farm machinery in the Men's Shed!

Stayed here for 3 days. Beautiful accommodation in immaculate landscaped grounds and great hosts. The room is very spacious (Tulip Room) with a great king size bed and a big en-suite that was spotless. Great addition was the mini fridge, tea/coffee amenities and the electric blankets were a real treat during a very cold and wet weekend. Very homely atmosphere...

Great place to stay, and fantastic hosts. We have never come across a facility so neat, clean & tidy! Even threw them a curve ball one evening by adding 2 extra people to stay - no problem to Kelvin & Annette, they just took it in their stride and catered amazingly for us. We took them up on their evening...

Had a comfortable stay. Spacious rooms. Quiet place. Even though we did not get much time to see around the place. we had a great time. The hosts were excellent and warm. And Cambridge is a small little town. Our stop over was a single night on our way to Auckland from Napier.
