What a fantastic find. One of the most comfortable B&B's we have been to in a superb location. The view from the veranda amazing and it is lovely to sit out there in the evening enjoying a drink. The room had all mod cons, including a fridge, and was very clean and tidy; as were the "public areas". Breakfast was... More

Rosemary and John are terrific hosts. I was greeted with tea and cake and helped with the route to New Plymouth, 14 km away. When it turned out I preferred to dine closer to "home," they assisted with nearer suggestions. There were many small touches to make my stay more luxurious. I had a large room, beautifully rehabbed into an... More

The room had everything you would expect in a fully equipped hotel (hot & cold drinks, hairdryer, toiletries etc.) enough space and a very comfortable bed. John gave good local advice of where to go and what best for us to see in 36 hours. (Cricket at Pukepura park in glorious sunshine was a really unexpected treat). His and Rosemary's... More

Villa Heights is located in quiet countryside 15 Km from central New Plymouth with picturesque views of Mount Taranaki – cloud permitting! John provided the fascinating history of the house which was moved to its current location as three separate loads and then extended to provide generous and high quality guest accommodation and facilities. We were welcomed with tea and... More

We arrived at Villa Heights after a 3 hour drive in torrential rain, and the warm greeting from Rosemary and John was very welcome, as was the tea and home-made cake which soon appeared. The accommodation is beautiful-a Victorian villa with all mod cons. Our room was Egremont, and was spacious and comfortable with little extras like bathrobes and a... More

This truly was a home from home. We were welcomed by John and Rosemary with tea and homemade cake. We had the valley room with a wonderful view over farmland. It was great to sit in bed and watch the sun rise. The house is very well appointed with large gardens. The position is very peaceful and well away from... More

Excellent breakfasts and home made scones - delicious! A very well appointed room with en suite facilities and an amazing view of Mt Taranaki. thank... More

This bed and breakfast was set in an idyllic peaceful country side location. The views were to die for and the view of Mt. Taranaki was great. Rosemary and John the owners were so friendly and welcoming , the accommodation was too a high standard and very comfortable and the breakfast choice was great. It was wonderful to chat to... More

We have just stayed with Rosemary, John and Daisy (their gorgeous dog) for 4 days. We had the Valley room which was lovely with a well appointed en suite. Nothing was too much trouble for either of them and they are excellent hosts. Rosemary is a fantastic cook and we much appreciated the slices of Christmas cake left in our... More

We stayed two nights and found it just perfect. Soft comfy bed and warm cozy room. Own bathroom, full cooked breakfast - really couldn't find better care and service anywhere else. In fact, its actually better than home!! John & Rosemary are wonderful and welcoming. Friendly and relaxing. I'd love to recommend to all my friends but they might just... More
