What can we say - this is our new 'bolt hole' from Auckland. Terrific hosts, very generous (to say the least) and tasty food, very comfy beds and a lovely lounge area. Old school (in a very good way) service that is too sadly lacking in most places. We felt really comfortable here and you know and feel that a...

Booked on to stay at foxgloves for 2 nights with my partner but ended staying for 3! The accommodation is beautiful, the food & wine great value and the host amazingly accommodating. Would recommend to anyone as a lovely, peaceful getaway for some R&R way from the hussel and bussel of life to recharge your batteries.

We have just returned from a most memorable two day stay at Foxgloves Bed and Breakfast, hosted by Grace and Patrick. From the moment we arrived we were delighted with every aspect of this amazing Victorian Homestead, so beautifully furnished and serviced. Grace was a charming and most caring host who attended to our every need! Delicious meals were provided...

We stayed 2 nights at Foxgloves over New Years. We absolutely loved it! The house is beautiful, and it's in a great spot. Our room had lovely french doors opening out to the hillside. Watching the sunrise out the doors from the comfort of our warm bed was amazing. Grace and Patrick were very gracious hosts and we were surprised...

We stayed at Foxgloves Christmas and Boxing Day and what a wonderful experience. To start with Foxgloves is magnificent... the Victorian homestead is so comfortable and with amazing decor. You step back in time when you enter the door, from the lavish bedroom and bathroom to the stunning living areas, everything is Victorian splendor! Set in a beautiful, peaceful surroundings...

We stayed 1 night at this beautiful B & B and I wanted to stay much longer. The decor is in keeping with the victorian theme, all the way through the bedrooms, bathrooms and living & dining areas. It is just beautifu. We enjoyed dinner by way of the wood fire pizza oven, our 10 year old son especially enjoyed...

Where to start? There are so many good things to say about my stay at Foxgloves. The location may seem out of the way but that adds to the experience. The silence at night is amazing, so, so peaceful. Even during the day, it is rare to hear any noise other than nature during the day. The attention to detail...

Following such great recommendations we stayed for two nights at Foxgloves and loved it. Tony was busy but Cheryl looked after us like family. The Victorian themed room we stayed in was full of character and the accommodation comfortable. The location is ideal as a first or final stop before Auckland. Thoroughly recommended.

More like a 5* hotel than a B&B. The dinner was first rate! If described as a 'lodge' or something, they could & should charge double. Please go! A little difficult to find. My sat nav sent me the wrong way round....

After a month in NZ, this was one of my most favorite stays. I only met Tony as his wife was away on business. I was attended to like a King. The place itself is about 30 minutes from supermarkets and the like, but you will not need to bring food as Tony cooks up meals full of fresh ingredients...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Located in a tranquil rural setting in the lush Waikato region of New Zealand, the beautifully renovated Foxgloves Bed and Breakfast is an escape to the country. This traditional Victorian homestead, surrounded by rolling farmlands, takes you back to a bygone era where time stands still and you wake to the sound of bird song, farm animals and the smell of a good country style breakfast. ... more   less
