The fact that we and many others return year after year to Carneval is a testament to how excellent it is. If you are visiting for the first time, make sure you have a meal there. Roly is a superb chef. The rooms are great, the view is superb and the Swiss breakfast makes the perfect start to a day.

The setting is simply beautiful with breathtaking views across Cable Bay. On arrival we were greeted by Martha who made us very welcome with a drink and some nibbles and plenty of advice on how to get the most out of our stay.Our room was comfortable and so well equipped - nothing had been overlooked - even a stamped postcard...

We named it our best B&B many years ago and we haven't changed our mind! Superb location, wonderful views, excellent accommodation, incredible breakfast and the perfect hosts. What more is there to say?

Brilliant, is the only world. Martha and Roly go out of their way to provide a very comfortable place to stay. What could be better than a Swiss style breakfast overlooking the bay in the morning sunshine. Rooms are large and very clean with all amenities. Would we stay again, Oh Yes, we loved it

Who misses a typical central European breakfast has to stay at the Carneval. But also the fantastic view over the bay is worth a stay. The rooms are very clean and comfortable. The atmosphere is very family like.

Martha and Roly make wonderful hosts in their gorgeous property overlooking the ocean. Our room was delightful, with all needs catered for and outstanding views. The wonderful breakfasts on the terrace were outstanding. We would definitely recommend Carneval as a memorable place to stay.

Luxury accomodation in NZ Overlooking picturesque Doubtless Bay . We were wowed by the hospitality of Martha and Roly, two Swiss, who now Kiwi's were real. Nice big room, big bathroom, extra room for luggage, free internet, wonderful views from the terrace, and the highlight was the breakfast- nothing was missing. We recomand Carneval Ocean View 100%
