Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Highgate bed and breakfast is situated at 167 Bird Road, Pirongia and is an easy trip from Hamilton, Cambridge and Te Awamutu. It is approximately 1.7 km up Bird Road on the left hand side. When you pull into the drive to the electronic security gates you will be greeted by either Dianne or Bob on the intercom who will open the gates for you to their wonderful world of 2 acres of magnificent gardens and beautiful home. Our property offers privacy. You can wander the gardens and discover many exotic plants that you may not see anywhere else in New Zealand. Enjoy the tranquillity, privacy, stars in the night sky and the gentle lowing of the neighbour’s cows. Wake up to the chorus of the abundance of natural bird life which surrounds the house. Clean large bedrooms offer a sanctuary to rest in or if you wish to contact the outside world there is free Wi-Fi available. Enjoy the purity of nature’s water which is from either rain from the sky or from our deep well and is filtered and ultra violet treated. You can drink our water without any worry about bugs. This is a home for all seasons. Enjoy a roaring fire and under floor heating in the winter and magnificent vistas of Mount Pirongia and the surrounding farmland until the sun sets in the summer time. Dianne and Bobs eco house offers consistent temperature throughout the year of 20 degrees. We care about the environment. There are native trees which attract the native birds. With two lounges you can join Dianne and Bob with a glass of wine in the main lounge or retreat to the second lounge for peace and quiet time. There are two televisions, one in the main lounge which is on Sky with both the Arts Channel and Sports channel. There is a television in the bedroom which is on Freeview. The walk in shower facility is suitable for all ages and capabilities and there is also a bath. There is a separate toilet. A hair dryer is available. The bathroom and toilet are for your exclusive use. Sheridan sheets, comfortable beds. Bathrobes are available. It is a quiet environment for sleeping. Your breakfast is provided. This can include freshly laid eggs by our chickens or homemade sugar free muesli and fruit. Your vehicle will be safe behind our gates. There is ample parking. We invite you to take a tour of the gardens and pick flowers for your bedroom. Sit in the sun on the outdoor furniture. We are situated close to Pirongia village and the Pirongia Golf Course. The local store sells fresh food and alcohol. There is also a Pub and many cafes and a museum. Pirongia Forest Park is 10 minute drive from our home. ... more   less
