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 the room or wifi anywhere. We could have done with a bit more shelf space in the bathroom for our toiletries. A good choice if you're visiting the Waitomo Caves.

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, birds, and sheep. We were the only guests and we were treated extremely well. Our hosts were invaluable in helping us decide what we really did and did not want to see, how long it would take us to drive to Fjordland, and the ins and outs of picking a caving experience. Whenever we came "home" they were excited to hear about our day. Graham fixed my reading glasses ... the glue held for three weeks! Breakfasts were sufficient with so many choices of jam. We did not come away hungry. The only downside of this accommodation was the lack of internet. While we found it quite difficult to not be able to inform our family we had arrived safely, this was a very minor inconvenience. When we left this little piece of heaven it felt like we were leaving home. It simply was the best.

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 91 - very good) before settling in for the evening at the B&B.

Do note that there is no internet/wifi at this B&B. This wasn't a problem for us, but you should be aware in case you're counting on having it. (I was surprised to find free wifi at Waitomo Glowworm Caves!)

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!
