On every level this B & B scores higher than I have experienced before. Nothing was too much trouble, everything to make our stay more comfortable, enjoyable etc was offered, including complementary drinks between 5 and 6pm. Their hospitality created an ambience where guests interacted more than usual in a friendly way and the breakfast was superb

This hotel was the best we ever stayed in in New Zealand. The house was a gem, beautifully decorated, spotlessly clean, comfortable, welcoming. The host and the hostess were the most interesting and delightful people we met in this country. The breakfast was amazing, with more than one could ask for. We would definitely stay there again just to experience... More

Stayed here for one night on the way to Auckland. The accommodation is modern, very clean & comfortable with lovely bedding and furnishings. It's only 5 minutes drive from the centre of Tauranga where you can find a number of restaurants and bars along the waterfront. We can recommend Volaro where we had one of the best meals of our...

My partner and I stayed one night here recently. The reviews were excellent so I was a little taken aback when my email communications with the owner seemed to be a little brusque and almost rude. I was inquiring about the option to have dinner in and when I asked what was typically served as I was pregnant and had... More

Group stayed one night and we could not fault either the accommodation or the hospitality provided by David and Tatiana. The rooms were spotlessly clean and everything provided. The breakfast was the equal of any thing at a 5 star hotel buffet breakfast. A great find and a stay which wss the equal to any in NZ.

David and Tatiana's place is modern and impeccably clean. It's one of the most warm and well insulated yet ventilated places I've stayed on my entire trip in this country. The room has a small walk-in closet, shower and bath, super super comfy bed (soft yet still firm), sheets were flawlessly white and smooth (I'm telling you 5star standards), and... More

We stayed with David and Tatiana over Labour weekend 2014, and we have to say that it was the most comfortable and well appointed b&b we have stayed in, anywhere in N,Z, Europe, or the U.K. Both our hosts were friendly as well as hospitable,and breakfasts were all anyone could want. The highlight of the visit was Tatiana's Russian dinner... More

I've never stayed in a B & B before so was a bit apprehensive, that was, until we met our hosts Tatiana and David. Nothing was too much for them and they were so welcoming. The bed was very comfortable and everything was spotless. I would recommend this place highly to anybody thinking about staying in Tauranga.
