Maggie and Ivan are very friendly and attentive hosts who did all that was possible to make our stay delightful. Our room was immaculate and very well set out, with every facility provided. They gave generously of their time and use of the hot tub was included. Good local knowledge and information and I am sure that the fishing experience...

Our first trip to North Island was such a success thanks to the likes of Ivan & Maggie Rudd who could not have been more helpful or accomodating . 3 nights stay in such a beautiful location ( both property & town ) was excellent and added to that is the fab restaurant next door which had just been awarded...

My other half and I stayed here for two nights and had a lovely time. We were originally going to pass through quickly, but were persuaded to stay a second night, which we are so glad we did. We had the garden suite, which was lovely and spacious. It was nice to have a separate living area and separate bathroom...

Maggie and Ivan were excellent hosts - very helpful and knowledgeable. They opened up their entire house to us and encouraged us to make use of their extensive facilities. The rooms were spotlessly clean and spacious. Breakfasts were fantastic. We would certainly return there again.

Maggie and Ivan were very hospitable. Make sure you arrive in time for the 6 o'clock drinks and a chance to discuss all the attractions around Taupo. Our hosts have only recently taken over this B+B and have worked very hard to make it as appealing as it is. We were upgraded from the Queen room in the Garden suite...
