We only had two nights but what an exceptional two nights. First a bit about the house, Iris's and John's house clearly custom made, everything is of the highest quality and comfort.

John is a great host, Iris was away when we visited. Breakfast was a surprise each morning and always delicious. John is very informative and offers advice on the local restaurants and attractions not to be missed.

We stayed in this B & B in March and it was beautifully situated in a tranquil garden setting with gorgeous views over Havelock North and Hawke's Bay.
