We stayed for 1 perfect night at the end of a quick trip to NZ with friends. Trying a B&B instead of other options in Hamilton was an inspired choice. The location in the country is so much more relaxing / the beds are divine / there was cake for afternoon tea on arrival. Everything about our stay was superb....
