After travelling from Rotorua and arriving at the Surf City Lodge at 11.30pm, we were met by Barry who dispite the late hour still had a smile on his face. My partner and I found the lodge to be a warm, comfortable, beautifully and lovingly restored home with lots of original features. Barry, our host made our stay in Gisbourne... More

Had a great stay with Barry and Ros. We were treated just like one of the family. Had a wonderful stay and Barry even invited us down to his Fishing Club for Dinner. The man is a marvel in the kitchen, so be prepared to add a couple of pounds, but good ones... Will definitely be back to stay again... More

Barry is an excellent Host, goes the extra mile in serving excellent meals. We had pan fried fresh fish in a cream caper sauce for breakfast one morning, and scrambled eggs with spinach the other morning we stayed. Top Notch. Room was clean and tidy. Peter Clark.

Excellent food and VERY reasonably priced, I may add. Stayed out in the Reef room and very comfortable and quiet. They don't call this place a bed and breakfast for nothing. Big Breakfast was better than other places I stayed that offered breakfast. Great atmosphere, loved seeing the cat that looked just like mine, made the trip. Barry and Ros... More

Pleasant company, wonderful food and a comfy room makes working away from home worthwhile. Business means I travel alot and always look forward to staying with Barry and Ros. The friendly atmosphere, pristine and tidy rooms, plus Barrys superb cooking skills have spoilt me from wanting to stay anywhere else. Havn't found anywhere else in the country that compares.
