“Beautiful Accommodation”
Reviewed March 23, 2014

What a simply gorgeous B&B. My husband and I stayed one night while visiting friends in Cambridge and wished we could have stayed longer. It is even more beautiful than the pictures show. The hospitality couldn't have been better and the continental breakfast was indeed plentiful. Thank you for a memorable visit - we also loved the secret garden.

Room Tip: I can't imagine any of the rooms being less than perfect.

My friends and I stayed en route to Bruce Springsteen in Auckland as part of our cross country road trip. Excellent location, quiet and well appointed rooms with comfortable beds. Our hosts Annette and Kelvin were fantastic and gave us a great breakfast so we played them a song, which they liked-bonus! Thanks for a great experience, we will stay again.

I stayed at Blairgowrie House for 3 nights with my sister and neice while visiting our family for a reunion. It was a very comfortable stay. Hosts Annette and Kelvin were friendly, supportive, helpful and accommodating. They have created a peaceful oasis made all the better for the understated and unobtrusive extra luxuries. I would definitely recommend Blairgowrie House to my family and friends and plan to stay there again next time I am visiting Cambridge.

My sister, my daughter and myself travelled from Australia for 4 days in Cambridge to attend a family reunion. We were absolutely delighted with Blairgowrie. Annette and Kelvin are welcoming and can't do enough to tend to our every need, at the same time discreet and unobtrusive . The house is decorated beautifully, just like 'country style' magazine, the beds soooooo comfortable, the gardens and out door areas are well maintained, great breakfasts, free wifi, a deep full length claw foot bath, choccies everywhere to nibble on, and very conveniently located only 4 mins from town. Must also mention darling Stanley and Walter the faithful doggies who kept me company when I was dozing on the deck one lazy summer afternoon......... Do stay, I will go back. Thanks for a lovely 4 days!

What a wonderful place to stay. Ideal location with beautiful rooms and decor. Our bedroom was spacious and spotless and gave us an excellent nights sleep. The breakfast in the morning gave us plenty of choice and set us up for the day. Our hosts looked after us and gave us good advice on restaurants and trips. It was a shame that we only stayed for one night.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review it means so much to our business. We hear the comment about sorry we only stayed one night so many times which is great. Trend is now that the average guests are staying two nights as the news has been spread that the Waikato has lots to offer and Cambridge is so central.

Spotless and spacious home lived up to its high marks on this site! Friendly hosts and even a man shed to explore with some mighty nice tractors and such. We stayed here after a night of kayaking at Lake Karapiro which was perfect for a good night's sleep.

Beautiful elegant accommodations with a lovely garden setting close to Cambridge. The hosts are very hospitable and attentive and have a gorgeous dinning area with excellent breakfast offerings. Dinners might be available on request. The home is impressively decorated and has some bedrooms with special unique features - the tulip room and the chocolate room. One could not wish for any accommodation more comfortable or peaceful - a place you don't wish to leave.
Certainly is a repeat.
