    We stayed with Ann and Ross for a few nights in one of the B&B rooms. It was a marvellous stay - good old fashioned Kiwi hospitality. It is an older place with decor to match, but clean, warm and homely. Continental breakfast was a...More

    This b'n'b was located a short drive from the Waitomo caves and right on the highway, so it was easy to find. The rooms definitely had a bit of a musty smell, and the pillows/linen could use an update, but they were otherwise clean. There...More

    Thank you for your enthusiasm for that which we offer. I do enjoy our "outside family" entertaining our guests - they give so much to the pro-animal people!!
