The stay at Clearwater was our best Bed and Breakfast experience ever. Great welcome, spacious bedroom & ensuite with nibbles and fruit bowl, delicious breakfast with several choices available. Best of all were the hosts, Sue and Robin who were attentive to every need without being intrusive. Truly memorable. Fred and Eileen

My wife and I had never stayed in a bed and breakfast before and she was especially wary, but all of the excellent reviews persuaded her that the Clearview Lodge would be a great choice for our first. I'm afraid that the bar has been set so high, it will be a difficult experience to top. We took a two... More

Clearview Lodge was among the top accomodations we had during our 1 month trip around New Zealand. Sue and Robin were very warm and welcoming when we arrived and despite our jet lag we felt right at home. The property itself and the surrounding area is beautifully landscaped and the room was wonderful, plus our hosts shared their own wine... More

Fantastic house....for the rich and famous:) We came early and were greeted with warmth, kindness and apple coffee cake with tea. Sue and Robin went out of their way to make sure that our journey (Air travel) went off without a hitch. Guests can go up to the common room (Which over looks their vineyards and their neighbor's deer farm.)... More

We did not plan to stay at Clearview. We had actually planned to stay in a hotel down the road which got flooded, so that hotel booked us into Clearview Lodge for the night. Very happy that they did. The hosts were amazing. The house and grounds are impeccable. The breakfast was lovely and homely. I have no hesitation in... More

My husband and I have just returned from a wonderful vacation to New Zealand. Of all our accommodations Clearview was by far the best. Sue and Robin were terrific hosts and their bed and breakfast lodging was delightful. We arrived late in the day from Kaikora. We were greeted by both hosts and then settled into our extremely clean and... More

I and a friend stayed for 3 nights in February 2014. I chose this location because I had been very impressed on a previous, solo, visit the year before. I was not disappointed. Robin and Sue were marvellous hosts who made us feel like part of their family. Their home is a magnificent property of which they are, justifiably, very... More

We stayed at Clearview for four nights over two visits. Sue and Robin were such gracious hosts, providing a great location, very warm and inviting.
