Hazel House is easy to find near the highway, but it is in a quiet quarter a ten minutes ride away from downtown Dunedin. Brent and Sandy are very good and friendly hosts, and we had some nice chats.

Thank you for your positive review. Pleased you enjoyed your room and the breakfasts. You booked the King Room with private bathroom, but we also have the Pohutukawa Room with the ensuite. I do like the option of the separate bath though. We enjoy travelling and appreciate biscuits, tea and coffee available, and are pleased to offer a local beer... More

Stayed one night with my family and was greeted with a welcoming of abundance, and a home from home comfort. Great host with comfy beds and a wonderful English breakfast Would recommend, and only wished we could have stayed longer

Thank you for your kind words. That really makes Sandy and me smile, as we try to be welcoming, and to make staying here feel like home away from home. It's the biggest compliment that you could have written. Sandy does make yummy breakfasts, much better than my toast and tea. Hopefully we can see you again in the future.... More

Sandy and Brent welcomed us in a pleasant and friendly manner and that vibe continued for the rest of our stay. The non-ensuite room was comfortable, a good size and perfect for what we wanted. The breakfast was hearty. Would recommend.

Lovely to have you stay. I really like the Kowhai room with the private bathroom. It gives the option of a bath or shower in that large bathroom. It's still early spring but it's another beautiful morning. Happy travels Sandy & Brent More
