The House of Hazel itself is the original property brought by my Nana & Grandad in the 1950’s. I have so many fond memories growing up there as a young girl with my Granded, Geo, and my Nana, Hazel. Chalet Frodo is a new addition to the original property and the entire HOH property, has undergone a complete renovation. The House of Hazel consists of 4 very different accommodation options on an oversized residential section.

Chalet Gandalf is 1 of 2 identical chalets on the rear of the property where you have your own private, stand alone chalet and outdoor patio. We have filled your chalet with everything you will need during your stay and you have an off street park right next door to your chalet, all provided free of charge.

Other details to note:

The House of Hazel is very special to me. During the birth of the project I decided to pay homage to my Nana, a forward thinking and wise woman, naming the property, The House of Hazel, after her. She was warm, welcoming and her baking tins were always full to the brim for the family! Nana loved birds and cultivated a gathering place for local birds by feeding them a loaf a day! We have kept her bird houses and you wont miss the sounds of the birds nesting in the evening or singing away to each other during the day. We have done our best to anticipate your needs and have your accommodation well appointed for your stay. You will find everything from a hair dryer, iron etc right through to every cable tv channel, washing facilities, cookie time biscuits for your tea and chocolate on your pillow!

We use only green, organic and eco friendly cleaning materials and supplies to insure that we are doing our bit for the environment.

Also we have commercial laundry facilities available 24/7 for guests. Please feel free to enquire for further info :-)

The gym available is located at 30 Tainui Street, Matamata approximately 1km away from the House of Hazel. There is a small fee to use the gym.

HOH is 1km to Matamata town centre, 9km to Hobbiton Movie Set & Tours. There are buses that stop through Matamata to head to other towns and cities in NZ.
