We loved it from the moment we stepped inside! Thank you Colin and Janet for all your help, the delicious breakfasts and the cookies =)"

"We were guests by default on 17-18 May 2009 (refugees from Waitomo Caves Hotel who had arranged this place as alternate accommodation - 10 o/o 10 for their diligence). Fine hosts at this B&B and an enjoyable place to stay. A mini-fridge in the room would be a convenient plus."
