“Beautiful countryside views, excellent location”
Reviewed January 22, 2017 for a stay in January 2017

A beautiful little one-bedroom surrounded by the owners' lush, stunning garden. Very clean, quiet and comfortable. It's an easy 10-minute drive to Matamata and the perfect place to stay for a Hobbiton visit. We loved the shower (great water pressure!) and breakfast was tasty and plentiful. Brenda was very friendly and helpful and we really enjoyed our stay.

“Perfect retreat for relaxation and easy drive to Hobbiton.”
Reviewed November 5, 2016 for a stay in November 2016

Perfect short stay for two people who want comfortable accommodation in idyllic country setting. Shower is amazing, beds comfy, breakfast supplied was substantial for continental. No kitchen sink but Brenda took all dirty dishes away and replaced with clean. Both Sid & Brenda friendly and made us feel welcome. No complaints . Would recommend. Hobbiton is just a short drive away and Matamata has excellent places to eat.

Was made to feel welcome by Cyril when he arrived, we were waiting for someone to arrive as no one was there when we arrived. Was allowed to use hottub but was only warm as it had been switched of for a couple of days. Was told we could use washing machine and dryer, when went to use dryer had to wait till late for their washing to finish. Small kitchenette but no sink or anywhere to washup. Wouldn,t say Brenda was the friendlist person I,ve ever met. Woken in the night by owner putting lid on hottub which made a loud bang and woke us all up. Oh don't forget the aeroguard as the flies are very friendly. Offered wifi but was not working

Thankyou for your comments we will take them on board, I hope you enjoyed the fresh cucumber out of our garden. We had a temporary glitch with the wifi that came right during the evening, we are in the country and coverage is a bit slow on rare occasions. kind regards Brenda

“Wonderful Visit”
Reviewed February 25, 2016 for a stay in February 2016

I would recommend anyone travelling into this area to stay at this B&B. The room was spacious. The shower was outstanding (best we have experienced). The area is beautiful and the hosts were gracious. We loved this visit.

“Gorgeous Location with Amazing Hosts!”
Reviewed January 11, 2016 for a stay in December 2015

Brenda was extremely flexible and easy to work with leading up to our stay. The location was easy to find, and she immediately made us feel welcomed. The room was private and well-furnished, we were well prepared for, and they even shared coffee and conversation with us the next morning! We loved the neighborhood, adored the morning view from our window, savored the hot tub, and found staying with them much more accommodating than a hotel.
