Fodor's Review

The sign at the bottom of this B&B's steep driveway— "Approach with Enthusiasm"—sets a convivial tone. Hosts John and Helen treat you like family when you book into one of its four tasteful rooms, each of which has a New Zealand theme (bush, cave, farm, swamp), super-queen beds, and a second deck entrance. The comfy guest lounge features recycled native timbers, books, a wide-screen TV, honor bar, and stellar views of the green Waitomo countryside; a pretty barbecue area and fire pit let you continue conversations outside. The communal complimentary breakfasts—including free-range eggs and local honey—are seriously good. Book online or stay more than two days and you'll receive a complimentary bottle of wine as well.
