Manu Glen B&B
Photos of Manu Glen B&B
On your way to Field Days, Hobbiton, Rotorua, Waitomo Caves or Auckland Airport? Manu Glen is less than 80 mins to all of these....
Coffee/tea in the morning sun on the private east deck, or a wine in the late afternoon sun on the private western deck. Jane and Dave have re-site and restored the 82-year old Napier Boys High School hostel (The Stables) as their family home, as well as 2 fully self-contained B & B apartments, plus a small conference/seminar/function (also suitable for small weddings). They would love to meet you.
'Manu' is Maori for 'bird', representing the abundant birdlife in the area and on our block; 'Glen' acknowledges our Scottish heritage and the Waikato River valley we overlook.
Professionally restored with extensive use of recycled native timbers, the B&B has views across farmland and the Waikato River valley to the Hakarimata ranges, with our friendly animals closer to home: Little Pig, Ronnie the miniature horse, Olly the goat, two Arapawa sheep, 4 cows, peacocks, guinea fowl, chickens and 2 white ducks. Help feed the animals, or take a walk down to the River, via the island in our small lake. In season, you can help consume the produce from our growing crop of fruit trees, including unusual and heirloom varieties.
The 'national' Marae - Turangawaewae - is 2 minutes' drive north of the B & B in Ngaruawahia township, with the northern suburbs of Hamilton city less than 10 minutes south, and Auckland airport 55 minutes north on the Expressway. Part of the national cycle trail - Te Awa - currently running most of the way from Horotiu to Karapiro (including right through Hamilton city) starts 3 minutes to the south, and both the Hauraki Rail Trail and world-famous Hobbiton are 45-50 minutes to the east.
The B&B includes a fully-supplied kitchen, fridge-freezer, front-loading washing machine, Freeview TV, dining table and deck chairs. Supplies for continental breakfasts are provided.
Rates are $100/night (general) or $120/night during Fieldays and Rugby Test matches (plus the night either side of these events). A portacot and an extra foldaway bed are available by arrangement, with no extra charge for one additional person. Reduced nightly rates for stays longer than one night may be negotiated.
