  • The cottage was a wonderful blend of character and mod cons

    The cottage was a wonderful blend of character and mod cons. Delightfully set out with furniture and fittings, plus memorabilia of days gone by. It was like living in a history lesson ! My grandkids were very taken with the hot water bottles left for their use! Comfy beds and an amazing gas fire which gave the cottage a lovely cosy feel. We were so close to the centre of town yet far enough from the main highway to not be bothered with road traffic noise. We'd definitely come here again.

    Very sweet little cottage - warm and cosy. The location is great - close to the domain, walks, pools, restaurants and shops.

  • Location is perfect within a small town

    Location is perfect within a small town. Wonderful access to biking, walking, hot pools and a sufficient range of food options. Or not go out and enjoy a quaint cottage full of character and charm. Facilities are more than adequate, with small unexpected extras. Great beds. Great shower.

  • A gorgeous little cottage and very well located in Te Aroha

    A gorgeous little cottage and very well located in Te Aroha. Close to restaurants, hot pools and the base of the mountain for great walks. Also an easy cycle to the Hauraki rail trail. We were only there for a night but would have loved to stay longer.
