I couldn't recommend Tru Nort B&B more highly. I was there for a block course at Massey and didn't know anything in the area, however Ron and Avril were more than helpful. Avril has some absolutely amazing culinary skills and the food was just perfect. My room was immaculate and tastefully furnished. I was there for a short time but...

Ron and Avril are the most welcoming hosts I've met; one is instantly made to feel at home. The house is spacious, the bed so comfy after the long drive and as for the food....Avril is simply amazing in the kitchen; you certainly won't leave there hungry.

Tru North Tours was my first B&B in NZ and Ron&Avril gave me a really warm welcome. The room is cosy and the breakfast is amazing. The location is unbeatable: it is quiet, a few minutes away from the shopping mall.

Abrolhos and Ron are exceptional. Avril is an exceptional cook, the food offered was equal to a banquet. the home is peaceful and has an amazing sense of peace, calmness and serenity. Trunorth is by far, the most excellent value for money. I want to go back there just to enjoy their amazing hospitality!

Wonderful home to stay in. I'm a solo traveller and so appreciated the comfort, friendliness and home cooking in Ron and Avril's lovely B&B. Extra help with sorting onward journey, phone calls, pickup and lift to and from bus, packed lunch, laundry etc. the place to stay when on the North Shore.
