We knew when we booked Fothergills that it would be good but it exceeded all our expectations. Bev and Hilton were fantastic hosts, warm and generous, making us feel very welcome in their lovely home. The magnificent garden was full of roses and fruit trees from which we had our freshly squeezed juice for breakfast. Breakfast was an event to be savoured with all kinds of goodies from the garden plus a host of delicious homemade jams and preserves from Bev’s store cupboard. The garden was a delightful place to walk around or sit and relax and the hot tub on the patio surrounded with fragrant roses was a real treat. Having lived in the area for many years Bev and Hilton were able to provide good information and advice about interesting things to see and do in this beautiful part of NZ. I couldn’t recommend this wonderful place and very special people more highly! Mary and Joe

Just had a lovely 6 day stay at Bev and Hilton's. Found the breakfast amazing in such a rural setting amidst the fruit trees and roses - out if this world. Bev and Hilton remarkable hosts - on hand with suggestions of places to visit. Nothing is too much trouble - they let us use their BBQ and do our washing! Hope to visit again next time we're in NZ.

We found the Fothergills on Mimiha quite by chance - we were so delighted with this wonderful hidden Garden of Eden. Bev & Hilton are wonderful hosts and nothing is too much trouble. Highly recommend to one & all. Try it - you will not be disappointed...

We stayed for two nights with Bev and Hilton in early April this year. They gave us a very warm welcome and we thoroughly enjoyed staying in the guest room of their beautiful home with its magnificent garden. Our room was clean, light and airy with access to a small kitchen area outside where Bev had kindly placed fruit, home baked cookies, tea, coffee etc.However the highlight for us was joining them both for breakfast where we were offered freshly squeezed clementine juice, rock melon, figs, blueberries, yogurt and home made muesli, followed by ham and tomato croissant plus toast and an amazing variety of homemade jams. Wonderful!

You remain in our memories, Angela & Brian, as we enjoyed having you so much! We really enjoyed the delight you took in exploring the garden and finding fruit etc which you can't grow at home. You'll be thrilled to hear that we have a bumper crop of avocado's on the trees for next summer! Lovely to get this wonderful review! Thankyou very much.

A true bed and breakfast in the Bay of Plenty. The hospitality from Bev and Hilton are second to none. Their warm and genuine nature was evident from the time of enquiry and booking our two night stay. They both welcomed us and we felt like we were home. The accommodation is completely seperate to the residence and comfortable, though the only issue I would argue with was the slow Wi-Fi, which did not bother myself as much as opposed to my two teenage kids! Bev and Hilton take pride in their property and the immaculate gardens are an example of this. It's lovely to take some time and enjoy the peaceful grounds. Above all, Bev is a fantastic cook. Arriving at breakfast to inviting aromas of freshly prepared cereals, breads, french toast, homemade jams,(which she sells as well) and delicious home grown berries, was a highlight. Fothergills is a great little spot for some rest and relaxation time when discovering the Bay of Plenty in New Zealand.
