Travellers' Choice
Huntington Stables Retreat offers luxury, mid-range and budget accommodation in a semi-rural setting. This beautiful Bed and Breakfast is just five minutes drive from the centre of Cambridge, 20 minutes south of Hamilton City, in the Waikato region of NZ. Four rooms are available: North Stable, South Stable, Loft, and Stall. Both Stables are self-contained luxury lodges with a full kitchen, lounge and dining area, beautiful bedroom and luxurious bathroom. French doors open onto a large private deck with gorgeous views. The two Stables are tastefully furnished with individual touches to make your stay a memorable one. The Loft is a warm and sunny compact studio with a kitchenette, Queen bed, bathroom, open plan living/dining area, and a balcony to enjoy the views. The Stall is a basic but comfortable guest-room attached to the main house but with its own entrance. It is ideal for those simply needing a bed and shower for the evening, or when needing an extra bedroom and bathroom for older children or guests when booking one of the other rooms. Our amenities include a large swimming pool, hot tub, steam sauna, shaded cabana, loungers, gardens, petanque/boules lawn, bird aviary, outdoor yoga spaces, and a gift shop. This retreat-style accommodation is only 5 mins drive from town and provides the perfect setting to relax and re-energise, celebrate a honeymoon, anniversary or birthday, or as a wonderful base for exploring Cambridge and beyond! Stay at Huntington Stables Retreat, and play in NZ's most beautiful town!

We wanted a weekend away from it all and we found it here. Robyn met us with a warm welcome. We stayed in the Stall which was just what we needed. Cosy with all the comforts of home. Robyn has thought of everything that could be needed by the guests and more. The home grown fruit and the fresh flowers in the room were a lovely touch. We would love to go back sometime.

Property's Favourite Review
As is obvious from my title, I loved this place! I am quite a fussy traveler so am rarely as satisfied as I was with our two nights at Huntington Stables. We stayed in The Loft which is so much nicer than in the photos. Besides the lovely decor and fabulous views, every little detail one could think of, and some I never expect, has been accounted for. The accommodation is spotless and everything is in perfect condition, almost like new. I couldn't begin to list all of the little, thoughtful details provided for the comfort of guests. There were the things I always expect but rarely get such as hooks, tissues and adequate storage in the bathroom, good clothing and luggage storage, plenty of good hangers, adequate bedroom side tables with good lighting and plenty of good pillows. Not expected but so appreciated were things like really nice soap, toiletries in case you forgot something, DVD's, games, books, magazines, the kitchen stocked with everything you might want, and all of good quality. A fridge and pantry fully stocked for a really great continental breakfast plus extra drinks and snacks available. There was even a special lap pad for my iPad - so useful and something I didn't even know existed much less expected to find in a hotel room! And that's just the room. The grounds are beautiful and are in process of becoming even more so. There is a bird aviary and a beautiful swimming pool. And although we picked The Loft partly for the advertised views, the whole property has lovely pastoral views of the countryside. I could go on and on but suffice to say, we will be back. And if you are in Cambridge, don't even think of staying anywhere else.

Wow, this place was just so beautiful! From the second my partner and I arrived we were welcomed so warmly by the host Robyn, and taken to our incredible room - the South Stable. The outlook from the room's balcony was just stunning and being able o hear nothing but the birds, was so relaxing which was the whole reason for our trip away - relaxation, and boy did this place do the trick. We used the pool, the spa, the sauna which were all so nice and refreshing. We were relaxing watching a movie in the stable's lounge (which by the way has the coolest rustic and warm feeling to it), when we were treated to such a lovely surprise from the host - sticky date pudding straight out of the oven, enough to feed us both twice over and with freshly whipped cream too! It was absolutely delicious! We had a great days sleep due to how comfy the bed was and really didn't want to leave in the morning. Needless to say we can't wait to be back!! Thank you again Robyn for looking after us the way you did. We will definitely be telling our friends! x

This place is absolutely stunning, we booked the loft and when we arrived we had been upgraded to the South Stable, so never actually got to see the loft. We didn’t mind at all, the South Stable is gorgeous!! The whole place is gorgeous, very relaxing and just what we needed! Thanks so much for looking after us, very appreciated..we will 100% be back. Wouldn’t want to stay anywhere else 😊

Stayed in the Loft for a whole of eight days. The loft is just the most comfortable, cozy place you can find. You open the French doors in the morning to the most stunning view of the valley below, to the sunrise and and rolling hills of Waikato. Robyn & Andy are the most gracious of hosts you could ask for, they would literally lay over backwards to accommodate any and all your needs, just the nicest people you can meet. The whole property is outside of town, secluded and welcoming with the pool, spa bath jacuzzi and sauna. In short... if you are in the area you cannot do better than stay here.
