Instant coffee and NO WIFI at a time we needed to accomplish some work made this an impossible place for us. If your work can wait and you prefer tea this might work for you. Other parts of the cooked breakfast were tasty. The place was clean and we were required to remove our shoes before entering which helps keep...

There was a disappointing mix-up with our rooms as we had specifically booked 2- rooms, each with a private bathroom, but ended up with 2-rooms and a bathroom shared between four of us which was quite inconvenient. Our host took full responsibility for the error and did apologize but insisted we pay the full amount for our down-graded accommodations. Regardless,...

Where else can you wake up and see sheep roaming around the grounds. Bedding was comfortable, bathroom was modern with a terrific shower, the kitchen was new, stocked with jelly, bread, orange juice, and honey. The view from this hilltop home was spectacular

This is a really welcoming home-from-home b&b (apart from the slightly irritating issue of having to take your shoes off in the house). Our room was light and spacious looking on to the lovely garden and Margaret and Graham were were friendly and helpful with useful advice about the (limited) eating options in Te Kuiti. Nice breakfast. No TV in...

We stayed at this B&B for our first two nights in New Zealand. Margaret and Graham were so accommodating in allowing us to check in early after a red eye 14 hour flight. Our room and our bathroom were lovely, comfortable, and clean with amazing views, garden doors and a deck. This home has the most delightful views, gardens, cat,...

This home is situated on top of a hill, and the views of the surrounding countryside are outstanding. Margaret and Graham are charming and hospitable. The home was clean and comfortable, and we enjoyed our overnight stay. The location was good - a short drive from the Waitomo caves area. We stopped in Otorohanga for dinner (Indian food at Castle...

We had the pleasure of staying here for one night. Margaret and Graham the owners were engaging, friendly and just so hospitable! The home is clean, beautiful and the view unmatchable! We felt like we were home! Our girls didn't want to leave!

This is a fantastic B&B. The place is modern, clean, and comfortable. Plus, the hosts are fantastic. They went out of their way to make us feel welcome and comfortable. If you are in the Waitmo Caves area and looking for lodging, don't hesitate to book here.

Although we only stayed over for one night, it was one of the most memorable experiences that I had in New Zealand. Margaret and Graeme were amazing hosts and my husband and I had lovely conversations with them. They were very helpful in recommending what to do around the area, and even directed us to a restaurant in Te Kuiti...
