The cottage was delightful

We recently stayed two nights at Mulga Bill’s. We thought the cottage was delightful. The lounge and well-equipped kitchen are large and airy. There is plenty of crockery and cutlery and even ‘little extras’ in the fridge. The beds have high-quality bedding and electric blankets. Bruce and Sherril have thought of everything (even torches in the bedroom drawers).

We breakfasted with our gracious hosts on delicious wholemeal porridge and homemade bread and jam!

Highly recommended. Thank you Bruce and Sherril.

Definitely value for money and we highly recommend it

We had a wonderful 3 night stay at Mulga Bill’s. Bruce and Sherril are warm, welcoming hosts who pay attention to every detail. The accommodation was spotlessly clean and extremely comfortable. We were fortunate that Bruce knows a local Kaumatua, Wallace, who came and gave us a talk on the local area and its history on the night we arrived. We opted for Mulgar Bill’s Tuckerbox for 2 nights and really recommend this option. The meats were lovely and tender and there was a huge variety of vegetables. We also opted for the cooked breakfast which Bruce cooked and it was so nice to spend time chatting with him while we ate our breakfast. Definitely value for money and we highly recommend it.

Wonderfully located stopover . . . . healthy dinner

I would like to highly recommend the accommodation provided at Mulga Bill’s Stopover.

The accommodation is located at a very good half way point if cyclists wish to do the Pou Herenga Tai Twin Coast Cycle Trail over two days.
Besides it being a wonderfully located stopover after 46kms of riding on your first day from Opua to Kaikohe, hosts, Bruce and Sherill, are very friendly, helpful and provide you will all the home comforts you need to stay overnight. Sherill prepared us the ingredients for a healthy dinner which we enjoyed preparing and cooking ourselves. We were invited to the McNabb’s residence the next morning for a very filling, wholesome breakfast which provided us with all the ‘goodies’ we needed for the final day of the cycle trail.
Thank you Bruce and Sherril.  Janine and I enjoyed our stay at Mulga Bill’s Stopover very much and have already mentioned your accommodation to a number of our friends who are keen to follow suit in the future! All the best.
Warm regards

The personal touch really added to our stay

Hi Bruce and Sherril
The 4 of us had a fabulous 2 nights at Mulga Bill’s. The personal touch really added to our stay – things like the Easter eggs, chocolate biscuits, bottles of water in the fridge and…… thanks for letting us use your stunning pool. We ABSOLUTELY RECOMMEND MULGA BILL’S AS GREAT VALUE FOR MONEY. Starting in the middle of the track and going out to the coast each day is a great way to ride the Twin Coasts. This is a perfect bike trail for families or for relatively inexperienced cyclists and we are spreading the word rapidly in the South Island.
