As a host, Helen was relaxed and very welcoming. She quickly seemed to understand the things that we would be interested in seeing and gave us helpful directions. We felt more like friends than guests. Our room was very comfortable, and whilst there are shared bathroom facilities, we were the only guests staying, so we had the run of the...

Well received when arriving later than expected after enjoying "The Squeeze" with NZ River Jet on Waikato river. This helped set the mood for a most excellent night. The aroma of freshly baked bread added to good conversation over breakfast. Good advice on finding eating, shopping, places of interest.

My partner and I stayed here for two nights. The house is beautiful and the owners are lovely. We didn't realize we had booked single beds, but that wasn't any issue really, the only issue we found was that our room didnt have air conditioning and in the middle of January, it got pretty hot. The town is small but...
