We stayed in the B&B 'wing' of the main house. Lots of space for a couple with good sized bedroom, bathroom, separate WC, and small sitting room. Immaculate presentation, so beautifully clean throughout. Crisp white sheets on the bed, soft fluffy towels - better than most of the five star hotels in the central city! Hosts Vicki and Robbie were... More

We stayed just one night in one of the cottages, we left feeling refreshed and relaxed. The cottages were spacious, clean and well furnished. The property is set in a lovely peaceful, rural location with amazing scenery. Mangawhai village was only a few minutes drive away. This has been the best place we have stayed in over the many years... More

A lovely spot a little out of Mangawhai in a rural setting. Stayed in the B&B part of the house, but cottages also available. Warm welcome and really helpful hosts. Good amenities, well maintained, and a very nice breakfast included. Highly recommended.

We stayed here just one night, in the B&B room, as we travelled north. Wish we could have stayed longer. The B&B, ensuite room, is actually a suite with a small sitting room, nice bedroom, well furnished with many small extra touches. Location is superb - orchard, garden, wonderful host. Highly recommended.

We arrived at Sunhill Cottages feeling stressed & tired, & left 4 days later completely relaxed & refreshed. The property is set in the beautiful, quiet countryside whilst being only 5 minutes drive from Managwhai village & the beach. We stayed in the bed & breakfast area of the main house, in a lovely private area looking out onto the... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, lovely room,super hosts and delicious breakfast. The pool was an added bonus and reading a book beside it on a lounger was bliss.We were only a short drive from beaches .

We stopped at Sunhill Cottages on our first night in New Zealand. Tired and jetlagged, Sunhill was the perfect antidote - welcoming, clean, quiet and very relaxing. The countryside location was great, complete with fantastic views from the rooms and veranda. Robbie was a great host, and breakfast was fantastic (it even included bottle-feeding a lamb - although I'm not... More

This is a must visit stop on your next vacation to New Zealand. You know you picked well when the beautiful roses greet you as you drive in. With fruit trees surrounded by even more flowers and manicured lawns and gardens. Vicky and Robbie run an entirely green operation. If you opt for breakfast, the chickens oblige you each day... More

The stay at Sunhill B&B is just like being in your own home. The owners are so hospitable and take care of your every need. The farm like surroundings is so relaxing and the NZ views are breathtaking! I would recommend Sunhill B&B to anyone that wants an authentic NZ stay.
