We very much enjoyed our stay. Avril and Ron made us feel welcome and very much at home. We even met their grandchildren. The rooms here are very pleasant and the beds comfortable. Would definitely recommend Tru North to everyone.

Clean, tidy, and comfortable house with wonderful hosts Ron and Avril. I will definitely return to Tru North if I travel up north in future. Perfect short term accommodation for Massey students attending block/contact course in Massey Albany campus.
