My friends (married), my husband and I had stayed two nights here. I loved the Kiwi couple that ran this place, Katherine and Steve. We talked for hours and she made a fantastic breakfast! The kiwi juice was amazingly smooth. We never had it before. Katherine was full of local information and tips. Whenever my husband and I return to... More

We later met Katherine's husband and son, and heard about her daughter's start at university, which made us feel part of the family during our short stay. Our... More

But then we were so pleasantly surprised by how lovely our stay turned out to be! Katherine is a lovely host, we had the best time talking to her for hours about New... More

We spent 2 nights in this b&b. Nice room, great breakfasts and very helpful hosts. My camera broke down and it was not a problem to use the home computer to gather some information about cameras. Great hospitality!

Not much to add to all the other reviews. I'd agree with all the positive comments about the wonderful hosts, warm welcome, cookies and cakes, local knowledge, lovely breakfast, good location, immaculate rooms etc. Would love to come back one day...
