Enjoy your visit to Waingaro with a stay at Foxgloves Bed and Breakfast. Guests can enjoy the spa tub, and parasailing and snorkeling are nearby. Rooms at this upscale bed & breakfast get the details right with private spa tubs, Egyptian cotton sheets, and rainfall showerheads.
Pros: Location was ideal. Bus stop for Intercity and local buses right in front of the hotel. Lots of food options and a produce store within walking distance, easy access to riverfront and Huntly Domain using overpass bridges. Hotel room was cozy and clean (came with electric tea kettle, tea and coffee, flatscreen TV, mini fridge, basic dinnerware). No central heating but there was a powerful space heater. Owners Kevin and Gael were super friendly and easygoing.
Cons: No wifi, room did not have wired internet access even. Hotel can be prone to power issues in winter due to New Zealand's crazy weather. Credit card machine (surcharge to use credit card) was down so had to pay by cash, but that wasn't their fault since the weather was chaotic when I stayed.
