The whole experience was wonderful from the minute we arrived. We did the farm and had the most beautiful room. At Shailers we had booked dinner and Dianna is a wonderful cook. This was served on the deck area outside our room by Charlie and was delicious. Breakfast next day was first class. Just cannot say what a special place...

A very comfortable and pleasant stay at the Shailer's B&B. Good selection of choices for breakfast and very attentive hosts. Having use of the laundry facilities was very useful, accommodation had all the utilities and amenities we needed for a comfortable me stay.

It started with a greeting of "and here is the snooker table for guests to use and here are some home made gluten free cookies for you. Would you like a tea, coffee or water to go with your slice of home made lemon cake? Can I help you with your luggage?" It was the most welcoming of places and...

Hi Phil, thank you for taking the time to review our Bed and Breakfast and especially for giving such a comprehensive review.

After 3 nights in Auckland, this BnB was our first port of call, on our road trip to Wellington. We spent one night here at this wonderful accommodation. From the time we arrived, we were made to feel very special. We were so well looked after, the entire time. Dianna and Charlie could not have done any more for us....

Hi Jeanette, It was a pleasure to have had you stay with us and we are so glad you will come again. Hopefully Dianna's Lemon cake will be on the bench top next time. That's my favourite :-) I do apologize for the blustery weather New Zealand has been having. They say summer will definitely arrive for February. Better late...

The Shailer B&B was one of the great highlights of our trip to NZ. From the moment we met Diane and Charlie their welcome and hospitality was remarkable.

We really enjoyed staying at Shailers Bed and Breakfast. Charlie and Dianne were such wonderful hosts and the room was immaculate neat and clean.
