A very individual house set in stunning gardens just outside the town. Aaron & Ingrid were very friendly & couldn't do enough for us, wish we could have stayed longer.The first B&B on this trip that has offered a full English breakfast so that was much appreciated as my husband was getting a bit fed up with croissants !Make sure before you set off for this one that you have the directions as it isn't easy to find just from the address, you need to know what roads to go down to find Whiskey Way, well worth it when you get there though.

When we arrived we all thought the house and garden was absolutely stunning. We booked the garden suite, which was lovely. Ingrid and Aarron are wonderful hosts, and put a lot of work into running a fantastic b&b. They are well travelled and have a terrific sense of humour; we spent an evening with them and another couple staying there and had a wonderful evening even though we didn't know each other (apart from us with our daughter and son in law). We had to change our hotel in Christchurch because of the earthquake, and immediately Aarron told us to use the computer and phone to do this. The breakfast was wonderful and we would highly recommend to our friends and hopefully we will be back to stay.

We stayed with Aaron & Ingrid for one night as we were attending a wedding in Palmerston North with our son,daughter-in-law and daughter. Wonderful hosts, friendly and helpful. Accommodation is superior - every attention to detail has been taken. It was such a pleasure to stay in their beautiful home and admire their garden and surrounding areas.We loved talking about travels throughout the world with them. Although, we were not there long we felt completely at home. Ingrid cooks a wonderful omlette - great hosts and thankyou for such an enjoyable stay.

I have stayed regularly with Ingrid and Aaron for a night almost every week for the last two years. They are always friendly and hopsitible and make me feel most welcome. It's a large house in a very quite country area near the outskirts of town - just what I need to relax at the end of a busy day.

This is a lovely place to stay. It's just outside Palmerston North, but handy to the University, and has beautiful gardens and farmland around it, as well as a reserve. I went to PN to do some work, but wished I could have spent more time enjoying the pleasant environment at the B&B. The house is also lovely, the rooms very comfortable and well equipped and the whole experience is very relaxing and tranquil. The hosts are very friendly and helpful (when we had a medical emergency they were a godsend). I would certainly recommend the place and stay there again if I go back to Palmerston North.
