The space

A lovely stay with Sally & Greg. A very friendly couple welcomed me with cheese and crackers and made every effort to make my stay warm & welcoming. Location was perfect for Hamilton East and also main city centre - both in easy walking distance. Room and bed warm and comfy and food exactly what I wanted. Highly recommend.

Go here! Nice, warm & cozy home with a real Kiwiana feel. Fantastic hosts. Friendly and fun. we don't get out much and don't like motels so it was a perfect get away. Easy walk into town and all the night life. Highly recommended. Thanks.

Very friendly and welcoming people. Sally very kindly collected me from the transport centre and from the town after the rugby game that night, I was very grateful for this. The breakfast in the morning was a nice wee treat. Sally had maps of the town available which was quite useful for me as it had information for the rugby game I was attending. I had no problems at all with the room and other facilities, they were very clean and tidy. The bed was so comfy. The little bar of Whitakers chocolate was a nice touch. Would definitely the place to other and I would stay here myself

Wonderful experience! The house is clean and cozy. The room is quiet and comfortable. The bed is soft and warm. And Sally is so considerate to have prepared everything you will need. There is even a towel for removing makeup! Most importantly, both she and Greg are very kind, friendly and hospitable hosts. To me, a foreigner who has just arrived New Zealand a week ago, the experience staying with them has been a very persuasive example showing the friendliness of Kiwis. Definitely recommend!

Sally and Greg were fantastic from the moment we arrived. They were so welcoming and made us feel at home. The room was great, bathroom was clean and Sally provided clean towels throughout our stay. Location is perfect, in walking distance to the CBD and many restaurants and bars. They have parking space which was very useful and were able to provide us with lots of interesting information on the area. I would highly recommend!
