Guest Book

Come and experience the joys of a peaceful farm, yet only 10 minutes from lots of lovely cafes and restaurants and 40 minutes from Waitomo Caves or Hobbiton.

“Voyage, travel, and change of place impart vigor.”    Seneca, 1st Century philosopher  so true, and thank you to all our guests who give us their honest feedback after staying at Amberfields, it means a lot to us to know if you have enjoyed the experience.  The following are some of the comments either placed in our Guestbook or emailed to us after departure. We invite you to also read the reviews on Trip Advisor (click on the icon on the top right page).  Staying at a quality B&B should be a memorable experience; one we should all have at least once in our lives!

Thank you sooo much for your hospitality this week and suggesting where to have dinner.  It helps when you don’t know the area.  We loved Spike and your love of animals, and breakfast was to die for, it took us all the way to Martinborough! See you again after our South Island tour in the Maui monster.

What a stay! Linnie is the most relaxed, attentive host you will ever meet. The rooms were spotless, the animals entertained the kids for hours and a full day of travelling effort (from Australia) was forgotten in minutes. Thanks Linnie, your extra efforts were most appreciated.

Need to get out of the City for a breather….Go to Amberfields Pirongia , experience great hospitality with Linnie and Peter in a grand rural setting, take a group of good friends step out from your busy life, you will be glad you did. Thank you again Linnie and Peter, totally relaxed, good fun had by all.

Amberfields was the perfect short getaway after visiting Auckland with two girlfriends. The scenic route from the Waitomo Caves was just as breathtaking as the views from Linnie and Peter’s picturesque farm home. We were greeted with a lovely organic dinner and woke up to farm fresh eggs. Our stay there was definitely one of the highlights to our visit to New Zealand.

Hello Linnie and Peter, how good to see your web site up and running. It gives us another opportunity to thank you for our fabulous stay with you over for the long Easter weekend. You certainly looked after us in every way. The picnic you organised in your American Vintage car with our individual lunch packs was a real treat (you gave us an adventure)! Your lovely home and wonderful meals, but more important than anything, is the genuine warmth of you both. We found that to be the outstanding. Thank you so much for everything, we will be back again without a doubt.

My bridal party stayed here the night before our wedding and Linnie went out of her way to make sure we had everything we needed and more. Great memories and thank you so much.  (abridged)

Our visit was so relaxing at Amberfields, just the break away from the city conference we needed.
