We had a very flying visit here - staying one night, arriving quite late and leaving early, as we saw Cambridge as a convenient place to stop en route to Waitomo. Vicki was so welcoming on arrival and we were pleasantly surprised by the rooms. They are spacious, well furnished, light and clean. Lonely Planet described this place as "chintzy" and either they misused the word or they haven't been for a while, as I thought it was classy and tasteful and would be quite annoyed if I were the owners and saw that! (We stayed in several chintzy hotels in NZ - this was not one of them!)

On arrival, Vicki recommended a few restaurants in town and then kindly offered to book a table for us. We then came back and enjoyed a drink on our patio before a great night's sleep in a very comfortable bed. The location of the Coach House is beautiful - I just wish we had had more time (in daylight hours!) to explore!

We had a slight problem with the guest wifi dropping out when I tried to Skype home, I ended up having to sit in the car to use the wifi!, but that is a minor quibble in what was excellent accommodation. Also the pool closes to guests quite early on - we quite fancied an early evening swim when we arrived but were too late (again a minor point, we just went out for a glass of wine instead!)

We have just had a fantastic nights stay at Cambridge coach house and wish we'd had the chance to stay so much longer. The host Vicki and Karl are lovely and the bed and breakfast is a credit to all the hard work and effort they devote to it. Our room was a lovely garden suite with beautiful decor and furnishings and a fantastic view and beautiful landscaped gardens done by Karl. The pool area and decking are lovely and this is where vicki set up our beautiful breakfast table with fresh flowers, wonderful fresh orange juice and coffee and a fantastic cooked breakfast, the home made tomato chutney is fab. This a wonderful bed and breakfast with lovely warm and friendly hosts and we can't wait to go back.

My husband and I spent the past four nights here in The Cottage. Our hosts were lovely people. We enjoyed the place to the full. We were looking for a bit of RnR after a busy 2013. We found the surroundings so relaxing we opted to laze by the pool rather than spend our days sight-seeing. On reading the recent comment regarding traffic noise (there is some, but it's in the distance) you really only hear the hum of traffic. This place is secluded by trees and beautiful landscaping (well done Karl). Overall, loved it and will we be back (try and stop us!)

We were doing a road trip around new Zealand and found this place for a place to stay over night. Very amazing host, and delicious breakfast. the area is beautiful and peaceful. At the end of the trip, this was the best place I've ever stayed in till this day for vacation.

At the end of a day's travel, we did a quick Google search followed by a phone call and 45 mins later we turned up with our young family just as the sun had gone down.
Our host had a portacot ready on our arrival and she waived the night time pool rule so we could let our kids swim off some steam before we put them into bed.
Yes, there was traffic noise, but no more intrusive than most other accommodation places at the same price. For a lovely setting and luxury facilities, we would highly recommend!
