My husband and I wanted to stay in a place that was just far enough from all the tourist places but close enough to the small towns that we could do short drives. I'm so thankful that we found this beautiful home in Pirongia and met John and Jenny. Only a short distance away from so many towns and places...

A perfect position with the driveway directly off the main road, but far enough back so that the road was not visible and there was no traffic noise. Lovely rooms in beautiful grounds, including paddocks with a small number of sheep and cattle. Jenny, our very friendly hostess, was there to greet us with tea and biscuits. Everything we needed...

Our hosts John and Jenny were very hospitable and informative. They gave us ideas of placed to visit. The gardens were beautifully kept and the views over the paddocks were serene. We slept like logs in the comfortable beds and left after we were given a hearty breakfast. I will definitely be recommending Somersal to my friends and family

We only stayed here the one night because of an accommodation emergency with our travel agent but wished we'd stayed longer! The hosts are a lovely mature couple who made us feel right at home. The rooms themselves were comfortable and clean and the surrounding gardens were magnificent, would have been nice to have stayed during spring! Would highly recommend...

We stayed one night before doing the glow worm caves. It happened to be a Monday which ment not much was open in the little town but a 25 min drive to Te Awamutu gave us more options for dinner. The room was clean and comfortable and breakfast was brilliant, just what we needed before heading off to the caves....

We stopped at Somersal B & B for one night and it was set in lovely gardens and the room was huge. The hosts were really nice and they gave us a vast choice of breakfast items and we stayed and chatted to them for ages. The little town was great with a supermarket, hotel/pub (the Alexandra) and like all...

This was a one-night stay prior to a visit to Waitomo Caves. The hosts were wonderful, the room big and comfortable, the breakfast ample and delicious. A lovely home in a lovely location. Would definitely recommend.

Mr runs this place while his wife heads out to the office. And he does a fantastic job, the rooms are clean and well appointed, breakfast was substantial and well done. The price was exceptional, although be prepared with cash on hand. The grounds are stunning, a great many private seating areas, a pool and walking distance to downtown Pirongia
