My family of 4 (kids are 6 and 4) had a wonderful stay, it was the best B&B we had in our 2-weeks trip (and that’s no mean feat, as the quality of accommodation everywhere in NZ was great – there was a good competition :-) ). The breakfasts and dinners, home-cooked by the owners, were delicious ; the welcome...

We stopped here for one night on the last of our tour of the North Island being a nice 90 minute drive south of the airport.

Dianne and Charlie greeted us warmly and we were invited to tea and biscuits before we had turned around! Charming family and a beautiful location and the evening meal and breakfast on the sunny verandah were "par excellence". And such a comfortable bedroom.

Me, my wife and my son stayed at Shailer's for 3 nights during our short trip to New Zealand and I must say that it exceeded all our expectations. Let's start with the location. It is situated in the picturesque Waikato county on about 180 acres of farm land. Beautiful country side views, serene yet close enough to Hamilton city....

I travel frequently for business and stay in many hotels and B&B's. Shailers is one of the most memorable. It's comfortable, clean but, most importantly, I was looked after extremely well by Diana - especially since I wasn't particularly well for 2 of my 4 nights there. You are guaranteed a warm welcome here andI will be rebooking next time...
