We spent 5 nights here at the end of a trip to North Island. We thought it was the best place we had stayed at over there. The unit was delightful, very clean, comfortable and well equipped. There was a nice private area to sit outside. The swimming pool was beautiful, quite large and set in lovely gardens. A great... More

Fred and Wendy are great hosts and make every effort to make your stay as enjoyable as possible. They will book trips for you and they even delivered us to our catamarran adventure and then collected us later to save us the inconvenience of parking all day. The room was very comfortable and well equipped and we thoroughly enjoyed the... More

We stayed at the Ash Grove on the last night of our holidays and wished we could have stayed longer. Lovely room, with a nice comfy bed and all the amenities you could want from a motel and more. The pool was really great and muc larger than a lot of motel pools, it was also set in lovely landscaped... More

Stayed at The Ash Grove for one week in Jan/Feb 11. What a fantastic little place. The owners, Wendy and Fred, are a lovely couple and very friendly and informative. Thought the warm muffins on arrival were great after a long drive from Auckland. We stayed in Unit 7 which was one of the two cottages. Can't fault it at... More

After searching for a one night room to accommodate a large party of us (prior to a booking in Russell), we found the Ash Grove. Others in out party fared far worse! Nice rooms and grounds and a very accomodating host. Well worth the money and somewhere we would recommend.

Stayed at the Ashgrove for 2 nights and found it to be excellent accommodation. Our hosts Wendy and Fred were very welcoming and helpful with information about the area. We enjoyed the cakes on arrival. We would have no hesitation in recommending the Ashgrove. Margaret & Des, Dublin, Ireland

Our second trip to New Zealand. After a start in Auckland we had big expectations on Pahia. Ash Grove is a nice little motel directly near the road Haruro falls. The owners (which by the way are selling - dec 2010) are a nice couple which probably has doing this for long time. The rooms are standard equipped and for... More

We thank these guests for their review. However, we are very disappointed to hear that they were not happy with the accommodation we offer. We should point out that ALL our units have been COMPLETELY REFURBISHED to a 4* plus Qualmark rating (though we still market ourselves as 4*, so that our guests feel that we are 'over delivering' on...

Hosts: Wendy and Fred are a pleasant and efficent team for whom nothing is too much trouble - in our case they went above and beyond what we could reasonably have expected. Rooms are cleaned to the highest standard, well equiped with french windows leading to a secluded garden with a swimming pool and bar-b-q's. Venue is about five minutes... More

We really enjoyed our time at the Ash Grove. Wendy gave us a very warm welcome and we were delighted with the standard of the room. Outside was a small covered patio area with a table and chairs and access via a gate to the pool. Absolute heaven after a long drive from Auckland. We were lucky enough to arrive... More
