Dear Sir Thank for your comments. We do have en-suite room but the price is a bit higher than the shared facilities room that you booked. If you like a room with private bath-room, please select this option. Regards

A quiet and peaceful haven at the end of a full day's driving, the décor inside the property is "restful", and the bathroom facilities excellent. The grounds are interesting, spacious, and home to a good range of farm animals, plenty of space for a stroll around. Access, to and fro across State Highway 1, might be a little stressful. Cambridge is very handy, with a choice of places for an evening meal

Establishment Dated

Pros: Friendly people
Cons: Updating of the establishment is necessary and the addition of bathroom is essential.
Location: Waitomo Caves, Hamilton Gardens
The reception was very welcoming, 4 Bedrooms to share 1 Bathroom ie 8 people to one bathroom. Rooms were cold and damp and furniture dated.

Thanks for your comments There is only 3 beds rooms offer for our guests not 4 bedrooms. There is 2 toilets available for all guest in the case of fully booked, we never have any problem on our toilet facilities. Regarding the furniture, we intended to use this dated furniture to match our Old Homestead house to give our guest the feeling of living in an old Homestead country farm with all sort of animals around the house. Hope this help. Regards
