Wow. Everything about this B&B is perfect: incredible hosts, great location, stunning views, huge rooms and sumptuous breakfast (or perhaps feast is more appropriate). Roly and Martha are two of the most friendly and accommodating people you could wish to meet and they will bend over backwards to make your stay memorable and amazing. By the time we left, we...

It was so great having you and thank you for the big surprise, when we wanted to do your room, the handmade Makana Chocolates, were just divine. Thank you so much for staying with us and the report.

Beautiful accommodation and splendid breakfast in a stunning location. Well informed, friendly hosts Martha and Roly helped make our overnight stay a pleasure. Fresh fruit and chocolates in the room a nice touch. Although we had only one night there, we are planning a longer return stay in this magnificent part of NZ soon.

Wonderful accommodation which is owned by wonderful people. Roly and Martha are so welcoming that we felt we were good friends on a return visit and not here for the first time.

We were traveling the second time NZ and it was a must to stay again in this beautiful B&B. Martha and Roly do maintain their high standard of rooms, food and friendliness combined with professionalism. So beside of the opulent breakfast prepared by Roly (a former chef), Martha provides maps and advices for points of interest in the region. The... More

Liebe Martha und Roli vielen Dank für eure tolle Gastfreundschaft. Die Einladung zum Nachtessen an Silvester wussten wir ganz speziell zu schätzen. Wir würden euer B&B jederzeit wieder auswählen, sogar 1-2 Tage anhängen. Alles Gute im 2012! Annelies und Urs Lier
