“Enjoyable stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 20, 2013

We could not fault the unit, the setting and the hospitality - good food and conversation. Loved the "to the door" delivery of the eggs. Clean and spacious with pleasant and relaxing views. We will return to Sunhill and hopefully stay longer and we will recommend.

What an enjoyable stay, we would have no hesitation in staying there again. Rob & Vicki are great hosts, you actually feel like part of there family, more like close friends, relaxed, easy going, clean comfortable accommodation, nice meals, lovely aspect, looking down a picturesque valley, could not ask for more.

This is my second time staying with the lovely folks at Sunhill Cottages. This trip was only 4 nights, would have loved to stay for a full week again. Would recommend to all. Great pool, great location, great rooms, great people.

I had been staying in Auckland for a couple of months to study at the university there and travelled around the North Island every weekend to see the sights. My stay at Sunhill Cottages was the most beautiful and relaxing trip during my time in New Zealand! Vicki and Robbie made me feel right at home in the cosy cottage. It was lovely to wake up to see the sheep and lambs in the garden and then have fresh eggs from the "Chick Inn". Next time I'm in NZ I will be making a return trip!

Sunhill Cottages was recommended to us. What a beautiful place to stay. We only had 5 days on the North Island, and we were so glad that one of our nights was at this beautiful home. Vicki and Rob were fantastic hosts. The rooms were beautiful and clean. we woke up to a fabulous breakfast. Highly recommend people to stay here. By Kerrie.

This was my second stay at Sunhill Cottages, the first was with my husband and daughter, it was a really relaxing weekend, lying around the pool and enjoying the beautiful views. Because it was so lovely we decided to have my friends Hens Weekend there. Vicky and Robbie were such amazing hosts they really looked after us We had an excellent weekend and the pool and bar area were perfect for our event. We are all planning another weekend there soon!.

We stayed at the Cottages on our 2nd last night in Northland as we were heading back to Auckland to fly home to Australia. Vicki and Rob made us feel so at home and went out of their way to provide us with all we needed as we had arrived late in the day. The cottage was immaculately presented with all the comforts of home. The look from our verandah had a spectacular view of rolling hills. We roamed around the property and felt relaxed and welcome. It was only 5 minutes from town so a good place to have as a base. We wish we had found it earlier in our trip and we would have definately stayed longer. I can't forget the homecooked breakfast with fresh farm eggs from their own chooks. A great place and a credit to Vicki and Rob. Cheers Cindy & Allan Dalton
