Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
If you have submitted a review for a holiday rental property, we may also ask that you provide us with proof of your stay to ensure that your review is attached to the correct rental property.
Holiday rental reviews collected via the VRBO website (formerly Homeaway) and syndicated to the Tripadvisor website are not currently subject to Tripadvisor’s standard moderation processes.

Perfect solace away from city
My partner and I needed to escape from AKL city for the night, and this was the perfect place for it. Very chilled out hosts, greeted by Sid on arrival, and left to our own devices to settle in. Beautiful countryside surroundings, no traffic noises, friendly dog came to our door to say hello. Very comfortable bed, thoughtful breakfast platter, nice and close to Matamata for dinner :) Highly recommend!

Beautiful countryside views, excellent location
A beautiful little one-bedroom surrounded by the owners' lush, stunning garden. Very clean, quiet and comfortable. It's an easy 10-minute drive to Matamata and the perfect place to stay for a Hobbiton visit. We loved the shower (great water pressure!) and breakfast was tasty and plentiful. Brenda was very friendly and helpful and we really enjoyed our stay.

Perfect retreat for relaxation and easy drive to Hobbiton.
Perfect short stay for two people who want comfortable accommodation in idyllic country setting. Shower is amazing, beds comfy, breakfast supplied was substantial for continental. No kitchen sink but Brenda took all dirty dishes away and replaced with clean. Both Sid & Brenda friendly and made us feel welcome. No complaints . Would recommend. Hobbiton is just a short drive away and Matamata has excellent places to eat.

Have stayed at better
Was made to feel welcome by Cyril when he arrived, we were waiting for someone to arrive as no one was there when we arrived. Was allowed to use hottub but was only warm as it had been switched of for a couple of days. Was told we could use washing machine and dryer, when went to use dryer had to wait till late for their washing to finish. Small kitchenette but no sink or anywhere to washup. Wouldn,t say Brenda was the friendlist person I,ve ever met. Woken in the night by owner putting lid on hottub which made a loud bang and woke us all up. Oh don't forget the aeroguard as the flies are very friendly. Offered wifi but was not working

Thankyou for your comments we will take them on board, I hope you enjoyed the fresh cucumber out of our garden. We had a temporary glitch with the wifi that came right during the evening, we are in the country and coverage is a bit slow on rare occasions. kind regards Brenda

Wonderful Visit
I would recommend anyone travelling into this area to stay at this B&B. The room was spacious. The shower was outstanding (best we have experienced). The area is beautiful and the hosts were gracious. We loved this visit.

Gorgeous Location with Amazing Hosts!
Brenda was extremely flexible and easy to work with leading up to our stay. The location was easy to find, and she immediately made us feel welcomed. The room was private and well-furnished, we were well prepared for, and they even shared coffee and conversation with us the next morning! We loved the neighborhood, adored the morning view from our window, savored the hot tub, and found staying with them much more accommodating than a hotel.

Beautiful location;
This is a lovely self-contained apartment in beautiful gardens with great views across the hills. The hosts were very welcoming and made us feel at home. There is an excellent breakfast provided. You have use of the owner's outside spa and there are laundry facilities if required. It is a short drive into Matamata (20 mins). This is a lovely peaceful place and I would thoroughly recommend it.

A comfortable stay in a magificent garden setting.
Hosts very welcoming, Unit was clean, comfortable and spacious. Sighted conveniently close to Mata Mata, the stay was enjoyable. Room was well equipped,, kitchenette potentially small/under-equipped, but we knew what we were getting at time of booking. Only slightly annoying was the operation of the adjoining garage door early morning.
