Karapiro Willows Bed and Breakfast
Ranked #6 of 30 Cambridge B&B and Inns
Reviewed 23 May 2015

Recently stayed at Karapiro Willows when in the region on business. From first impressions during the booking process, right through to our departure, every aspect of our stay was outstanding, and most certainly everything you want from a quality B&B.

The 3 ensuite rooms are located at the rear of the property with a separate entrance and parking, giving you the privacy often lacking at other B&B's. The room was spacious, immaculately clean and complete with finishing touches including Lindor chocolates and freshly baked cookies on arrival. Each room also had tea and coffee facilities (including plunger coffee), big screen TV, hi-speed wi-fi and a spacious bathroom with eco-products and large fluffy towels. All led to an extremely comfortable and quiet stay and a great nights sleep in the huge bed.

If that wasn't enough, in the morning we were welcomed into our hosts kitchen for freshly squeezed juices, array of herbal teas, coffee, home made muesli with home made spreads and preserves, yoghurt, freshly baked local breads, cooked egg, cheeses and salmon - too much choice! And all enjoyed with good conversation, local advice and the sun streaming in to the breakfast room.

It was a shame our stay was so short, but I hope to return another time, and can most certainly recommend Karapiro Willows to anyone seeking quality accommodation in the Cambridge region.

What an incredible place to stay. You instantly feel at home as you step through the front door. The breakfasts are amazing an there are lots of healthy options to choose or you could indulge in freshly baked muffins. A stay I will never forget and a place I will definitely return to.

I have stayed at the Willows on three separate occasions for a total of 9 nights. Robyn is a fabulous host - incredibly warm, kind and generous. Tremendous comfortable accommodation either on my own or with my husband. The breakfasts are terrific. Incredibly healthy and nutritious. I am reluctant to write this as I may not get in next time!!
and I am planning on spending the next rowing season there. I cannot recommend The Willows highly enough. Unique.

It is said that we were the first (honoured) Italian guest but what is for sure is that the quality of the accommodation is definitely top class. The bedroom (king size) are spacious, comfortable and very clean. The breakfast was simply delicious with lots of choices. All the foods was natural and very very fresh.
A place to come back.
