We stayed here overnight on our way to Rotorua. Our room was comfortable and clean, as was the bathroom. Breakfast was excellent. John was unable to provide us with an evening meal, but we had been warned of this in advance and Janet gave us suggestions for somewhere to go en route from Auckland. However we arrived too early to...

Wonderful room, quiet, very clean, extremely nice hosts! A greenstone factory store is nearby where you can buy maori pieces of art and jewellery at greatly reduced prices when compared to tourist locations. Janet and John proposed to us an alternative way back to Auckland, which turned out to be a wonderful "finalissima" of our trip in NZ.

Late night arrival from Auckland airport was no problem at all for John who had been spot on with his 45 minute estimate for the drive down. It was the perfect place to start our long journey down to the South Island the following day. Very comfy bed in the King Room and a very hearty breakfast (lunch not necessary!)...

With three fellow mature age rugby tragics I booked into Chestnut Ridge Farmstay for two nights in September, mainly because of the outrageous price gouging going on at hotels in the Auckland/Hamilton area. As it turned out the hoteliers had done us a great favour. Chestnut Ridge was an absolute delight. Indeed it was the highlight of our trip (particularly...

A great stop-off on way to Auckland airport, near to main road to Auckland, in beautiful country setting. Warm welcome, excellent food including dinner, and a good place for the kids to let off steam. Highly recommended for tourists traveling New Zealand, not least because Janet and John provide a number of interesting insights into the country, which you would...

Janet and John are top hosts. They were so thoughtful during our stay with a 3 year old and 1 year old., offering toys,books and guided tours around the farm. A lovely relaxed stay, the breakfast was also one of the best we had in NZ. Overall great value, stay with them if you can!!

Stayed one night on our way south after travelling around for a couple of weeks. Certainly the best accommodation including cleanliness. Food was brilliant as we also took the dinner option. My daughter also came to stay and she said that she had had the best night sleep for a long time. This is not a hotel but b&b with...

John and Jaanet are great hosts - hard to believe they have been doing this since only three years. Very welcoming hospitality and easy-going. We chose the King Sperior room which comes with its ensuite and spa. We loved the hearty breakfast especially John's home baked bread and Janet's delicious museli. We ddin nott ry the dinner but am sure...

My wife and I had a great time relaxing at Chestnut Ridge. It was like visiting old friends. We were starting our trip around New Zealand and had just arrived. Chestnut Ridge is about 1 hour south from the international airport in Auckland, an easy drive. Our room was small but clean and very comfortable. We were adjacent to the...

“There are two rooms to choose from - if you want the most privacy, opt for the Super King room, which is detached slightly from the house but with its own bathroom. The queen room is inside the main house and slightly less private, but still lovely.”

“The external room is a little more private although the internal room can be closed off from the rest of the house and has an external entry.”
