I stayed with Avril and Ron for two weeks. It was very pleasant, convivial stay. The accommodation is clean and comfortable. The hosts and family are very friendly, generous and go the extra mile (sometimes literally) to help their guests - particularly the young or those unfamiliar with the area. The location is only a short walk to the Albany bus station with its good connections direct to the CBD and the North Shore in general. Good shower, comfy bed, and interesting company. You'd never go hungry here with lots of yummy food. Leave your worries at home but do bring your appetite!

Home away from home is the feeling you get when you are with Ron and Avril. Something we would cherish for all times to come. The most gracious couple and hosts this side of the world:) The lady of the house, Avril, is warm, extremely considerate and caring towards all who share their exceptionally tidy, beautiful and peaceful home. Avril's cooking is par excellence be it breakfast, lunch, or dinner and always served fresh and hot from the stove/oven with loads of love and care. The rooms are always fresh and beds are deliciously welcoming at the end of a tiring day. We consider ourselves lucky to have found Tru North tours and priviledged to recieve their hospitatlity at most reasonable rates. Thank you Ron and Avril for welcoming us into your home and hearts.

Room Tip: The house is located in a quiet cul-de-sac and all the rooms are equally lovely to stay in. The whol...

Avril and Ron simply outdo any other bed and breakfast! They made me feel right at home and spoilt me with many extras such as a packed lunch for university, dropping and picking me up daily from university,catering to my vegetarian diet. The rooms are large and kept in prestine condition. Avril is an excellent cook and she always offers a wide choice of foods at each meal.
The location of this bed and breakfast is in walking distance of the university and is close to the bus service opposite Pine Hill Primary school.

Avril and Ron are a warm,friendly couple who made me feel part of the family. I would highly recommend their Bed and Breakfast to national and international guests! Thank-you Avril and Ron for all your kindness and care! Alison J

Room Tip: " Each Room has unique decor-ask Avril about the different rooms, they are all great"

Avril and Ron are excellent hosts and definitely go out of their way to make a person feel welcome. The rooms are bright and modern, beds comfortable. The only problem I had was traffic noise at night, but that was easily fixed with good earplugs. I really enjoyed my stay with them and especially enjoyed their hospitality and tips for places to visit while there.

Room Tip: If not used to traffic noise 32 decibel ear plugs work great to help sleep.
