We had the pleasure of staying here in late March and were so glad we did. The B&B is situated on a high hill with 360 degree views. The gardens and grounds are impeccable, the house spectacular. We really thought we must have had the wrong address. While we carried the luggage up many stairs it was certainly worth it....

Ingrid and Arron run an amazing bed and breakfast. Every detail (even the smallest) is attended to. They take enormous pride in their gorgeous property, and it sure shows. The room is by far the most comfortable we have ever slept in! The bed is heavenly. Everything is immaculate!!!!! The floors are heated in the bathroom! The breakfast was hearty...

When we arrived we all thought the house and garden was absolutely stunning. We booked the garden suite, which was lovely. Ingrid and Aarron are wonderful hosts, and put a lot of work into running a fantastic b&b. They are well travelled and have a terrific sense of humour; we spent an evening with them and another couple staying there...

I have stayed regularly with Ingrid and Aaron for a night almost every week for the last two years. They are always friendly and hopsitible and make me feel most welcome. It's a large house in a very quite country area near the outskirts of town - just what I need to relax at the end of a busy day.

This is a lovely place to stay. It's just outside Palmerston North, but handy to the University, and has beautiful gardens and farmland around it, as well as a reserve. I went to PN to do some work, but wished I could have spent more time enjoying the pleasant environment at the B&B. The house is also lovely, the rooms...

From the moment you turn up the driveway through the lovely gardens past the ornaments and sculptures and the wee pond you know that you are going to love your stay here. Once you arrive at the front door you are greeted by really friendly charming hosts and given a lovely relaxed welcome with tea, coffee or a cold drink...
