We stayed in this stunning B&B for 3 nights. It was great that the suite has it's own entry and sitting area outside if you would like privacy. You also had your bedroom, dressing room, with fridge and large bathroom, along with your own lounge! Pleanty of room! John and Gaye were so friendly and helpful - they spoilt us... More

My friend Jenn and I spent 2 weeks in New Zealand staying at various beds and breakfasts but staying with John and Gaye at Prospect Hill was our most the most wonderful experience. John and Gaye were so kind as to block off a day before our expected arrival in New Zealand, in case we were to arrive early which... More

Our stay here was absolutey wonderful . The owners, John and Gaye are fantastic hosts as well as lovely people and went over and above to ensure we had everything we needed. On arrival late at night there was tea and home made biscuits, the heated blanket on our bed was on and chocolate treats by our beds. Each morning... More

We totally agree with all the other reviews. This is a great place to stay. It makes all the difference when you get quality accommation as well as great hosts like Gaye and John. We had great sleeps and awoke to sounds of the birds in the trees followed by a thoroughly enjoyable breakfast and brewed coffee.

We stayed with Gaye and John on 3 separate short breaks during Jan and early Feb 2012 while we were visiting relatives. Each time we returned we were treated like family and indeed were exceptionally comfortable staying with them. The accommodation is first class, with the decoration, finishing touches and attention to detail ensuring that nothing is overlooked. A short... More

For the second time, we decided to return at "Brontë at Prospect Hill Lodge", because we feel quite at home, as if we were hosted by relatives. This beautiful fully restored late nineteenth century Victorian house is tastefully furnished. There is only a huge suite, consisting of a lounge, a bedroom, a dressing room and a bathroom with a private... More

The accommodation was outstanding - a private three roomed suite in a 'heritage' home in the attractive village of Howick just twenty minutes from the airport and a lovely ferry trip to central Auckland if you prefer not to drive. We were made to feel so welcome by our wonderful hosts Gaye and John - nothing was too much trouble... More

Great location, great accommmodation perfectly presented, but best of all Gaye and John make you feel like you've dropped in as friends rather than guests. John's tips on what to see, where to go and how to get there were just perfect. Unreservedly recommended! Thanks for such a wonderful time.

Stayed here twice during the rugby world cup - Gaye & John as the best hosts ever! Accommodation is a wing of the house all to your self, and you're treated as family. Howick is lovely with good shops and restaurants.
