We chose to stay here based on the recommendation of a friend's son and daughter-in-law. We initially booked two nights (since we were arriving so late the first night) and Beth was able to let us extend to a third night. The chalkboard greeting welcomed us as we arrived. The rooms were light and airy, super comfortable and Beth provided... More

My wife and I stayed here to kick off a 3-week trip through New Zealand. We chose to go B& B rather than hotel so we could quietly decompress and also connect with someone to get our bearings. Based on the reviews, 23 Hepburn seemed like a good fit and we booked 2 nights. Great decision!* After long flights, we... More

I well remember how exhausted you were when you arrived and had plans to head out for dinner. But the dinner plans were abandoned and you munched on your breakfast instead !! I also remember how revived and fresh you looked the next morning. Thank you for your delightful review. I loved having you here. More

Great location, property on nice and quiet street, and walking distance to restaurants and bars. Lots of parking space. Beautiful and clean rooms, best hospitality, lovely homemade breakfast, cutest dog ever. We are so glad we found this place!

What a special place this is. Beth is one of a kind - a truly welcoming and lovely lady. The room was light and airy and spotless. The breakfast was delicious and generous. We were provided with an excellent guide to Auckland, with particularly wonderful recommendations for restaurants in the Ponsonby part of town. Thank you Beth for a fabulous... More

Beth! What a warm and friendly, sincere lady you are! From the welcome sign to announce our arrival, to the (unexpected!) copious hugs to welcome us, and the care shown and attention to detail, you took great pleasure in welcoming your guests, making them feel comfortable and at home. The house is just beautiful, situated in a lovely quiet, leafy... More

Lovable and caring host. Great homemade goodies for breakfasts and a happy attitude. BUT, the $250 nite bedroom had a TINY bathroom - 6 x 6 feet square total! The hot water in the shower was irregular and because the shower was so tiny, you could not escape the hot spikes! Hard to use the sink (super tiny) as the... More

I am sad to hear that your room did not come up your expectations. You are right, the bathroom in both the Hepburn and Ponsonby rooms is small while the Jervois room has a much larger shower and bathroom. So for potential guests wanting a large bathroom, the Jervois room is the one that may suit you best. I will... More

Beth's B and B is just fantastic. Perfectly located on a tree lined street and just a stones throw from the superb bars and restaurants on Ponsonby Road. The accommodation was of a very high standard, beautifully appointed and clean. We thought everything was just lovely and also was excellent value for money. We will stay again. Thanks Beth! John...

I can't really tell you how lovely this place is-the easiest thing to say is that all of the flawless reviews on here reflect accurately the kind of stay you will have here. Beth is the warmest, most sincere and welcoming lady. You don't meet people like her often nowadays. Her house is a reflection of her personality. We only... More

Staying with Beth is like having a personal tour guide, hostess, friend and home away from home. From the moment we booked our room, Beth sent a personal email with all the details regarding transfer from the airport, car rental etc. a driver met us as we came through customs and delivered us to her doorstep. It was seamless. We... More
