We have stayed in very many B&B's in very many countries and I can safely say this is one of the best. Julie really had got it right - friendly, efficient, and a great cook. we loved the room, the amenities and the fantastic breakfast. One of the best things about B&B's is that you often get to have breakfast with fellow guests, and can learn all kinds of tips about where to go, where not to go, and just enjoy the company of fellow travelers. Our only complaint - we wish we could have stayed longer!

Super friendly and helpful family run this working farm lodge. It was abut rainy, so we didn't really see the grounds but there are interesting metal art pieces around the house. Rooms are good with decent wifi. The bed was a bit soft to my liking but that's ok, sometime you win and sometimes you lose in the ole bed roulette when you travel.

But, what is undersold is the fantastic breakfast offered by the family to get your day of hiking and spelunking going. French Press coffee, tea, juice, cereals, pancakes, French toast, NZ breakfast, omelletes, NZ breakfast stack, Omelets! It's hard to choose and it is all great. Kudos to the chef, I'm assuming it's a team effort of the family. Anyway great one night stay in the middle of farm country!

We booked this place as it was close to the Waitomo Caves but didn't consider how far it would be to restaurants for food. It is a clean place and the rooms are spacious and the breakfast was good. The owner is friendly.

Room tip: nice place but rather dated.

What a lovely b&b!
It was the second place we stayed in our 3 week long road trip across the country. We must of stayed in 10 different hotels and i can honestly say this was my favorite!
We arrived a bit early and was greeted by Julies mum and her daughter, who swiftly showed us around the property and got us all settled in!
We thoroughly enjoyed the hot tub and pool, spending a whole evening outside undisturbed! We finished the evening sat outside where Julie came and had a nice long chat with us. She's super friendly and answered so many dumb questions we had about the country. We learnt a lot from her in that one night we stayed!
She even showed us some possums, which i wasn't expecting to see at all!

The beds were super comfy, slept like a dream. It's so quiet there, perfect after staying in Auckland the evening before! Our bathroom was very clean and tidy, nice powerful shower too! There was free wifi too which was fantastic for us!
Breakfast was absolutely delicious, Julie is an incredible cook! Michelin star quality food i'd say!

It's a perfect place to stay if you're visiting the Glowworm caves or Hobbiton Movie set! I'd definitely visit again if i went back to NZ!

Room tip: Fantastic Hotel For Gloworm Caves/Hobbiton, AMAZING BREAKFAST!

Disappointed to have only stayed 1 night!! Really lovely host, nice comfortable room, breakfast menu was vast and pancakes were delicious. Lounge packed with family activities and we enjoyed the pool and spa pool too. Thank you!
