What a great choice to kick off our NZ trip. Thanks Averill and David for making us so welcome in the very delightful Consulate. The welcoming champers and cheeseboard were a great start and we wished we could have stayed longer than just the one night to fully enjoy the experience. Your suggestion of dinner in the local village was... More

David and Averrill were friendly and helpful hosts for our stay in Auckland. The location is convenient, the accommodation lovely and relaxing and the breakfasts were made to order delicious! The welcome glass of bubbly was a delicious touch too! Thanks for the stay!

Pure luxury at a very good price and something we could only dream of in the UK. The price for the same would be double or triple! The welcome from David & Averill, just delightful and like visiting very good friends. The home, I can't even begin to call The Consulate a B&B. It is so much more. Pure luxury.... More

We arrived after a few weeks on the road in a camper van, which we did drive to the front door ! Ooops - we dropped our luggage off and with David's help and several manovers we took the campervan back to the depot. We arrived to be greeted with a very acceptable chessboard and a glass of bubbly, we... More

In addition to the beautiful accommodation, what defines this property as unique is the "generosity of spirit" that the hosts offer. From a practical viewpoint, the standard of the rooms is extremely high, the breakfast food is fresh and there are a diverse range of choices. The location of the property enables quick access to the city (if necessary), and... More

A wonderful luxury b&B. And that term does not really do the house justice, it is more like a boutique hotel. Rooms are spacious and comfortable. Guest living room spacious and elegant. David and Averill are great hosts with the elusive balance of ensuring you have everything to make you comfortable and giving you plenty of privacy. We hope to... More
