Champion Rest - Bed and Breakfast in Tamahere

Champion Rest is the perfect base for adventure in the Waikato Region - it's close to cycling journeys, bush walks, great eateries, beaches and lakes.

Our bespoke studio (built and decorated by Chris and Amanda) is a real little gem. You’ll love enjoying a cuppa in the morning while taking in the view across the gully the gully bank, which we’re restoring with native trees. The bird song makes for a peaceful start to the day.

Champion Rest is centrally located, and is a stones throw away from Hamilton Airport, Mystery Creek Event Centre, Lake Karapiro, Hamilton Gardens, Avantidrome and Sanctuary Mountain Maungatautari.

We’re just a short bike ride away from Te Awa River Ride path, which leads to all sorts of great places including the award-winning Hamilton Gardens, the town of Cambridge and Hamilton City.

We provide breakfast - tea, coffee, herb tea, toast and spreads and muesli.
