We loved staying at this B&B overnight during our adventures on the Great Lake Trail around Lake Taupo. Both our bikes and ourselves were well catered for, and we enjoyed meeting Saxon! Thanks for having us.

Paul, Elizabeth and furbies in the beautiful setting of Twynham will be a memory to treasure. The home is a delight and the company of Paul, Elizabeth & Saxon the cream topping on the cake! We thoroughly enjoyed our brief stay and used their local knowledge to the full. A pleasure to meet them. XD

Elizabeth and Paul are awesome hosts. They made us feel very comfortable. Their house is clean and the garden so beautiful. Their pets are friendly. We had a nice stay with them and good conversations. If you don't like pets that shouldn't stop you from staying with them. The pets won't bother you at all. If English isn't your first...

We stayed two nights at this B&B and just loved it. We brought along our 6 month old and our hosts were just fabulous with us all! Handmade fresh scones and amazing homemade jams for breakfast with a lovely garden. Highly recommend for a lovely homely stay with warm and welcoming hosts with awesome local knowledge. We plan to return!...

Elizabeth and Paul are gracious, witty, and throughly entertaining hosts. They made our short one night stay delightful and we only wish we could have been there longer. The setting and house are lovely and sharing breakfast in the morning with them great fun. Between Elizabeth's wonderful scones and Paul's sense of humor, we truly hated to leave. Both the...

This B&B was a highlight of our NZ visit. Both Elizabeth and Paul were exceptionally gracious and welcoming, including wrapped Christmas gifts at breakfast December 25. The food was delicious, the accommodations lovely and spacious, the garden magnificent. Paul has a witty and fun sense of humor and is greatly talented musically. Wonderful hosts, beautiful stay!

We spent a part of our honeymoon in Twynham at Kinloch. It is a wonderful place with a nice garden, pleasant and clean rooms and very nice and friendly people who create very charming atmosphere.
