We were fortunate. As the only guests at the B&B that night, we were able to enjoy an excellent dinner prepared by our hostess Gay. As dog lovers we were pleased to be greeted by the resident Shelties - though they are only allowed to mingle with the approval of guests. We were just passing through so were not able... More

Charming hostess, excellent accommodation and all-round facilities. Convenient to local pub fit meals and drinks. Right by the beach without being beach front, lots of great walks on the doorstep, lots of local history and a very well-informed and welcoming hostess. Well worth seeking out, you won't regret your choice. Definitely one for a repeat visit.

Gay's B&B has the location and ambiance for a wonderful west coast stay. The home-made hot tub experience is a must do for couples. Although the area has a few options for meals, we were happy to take advantage of her package that included dinner and a generously packed lunch for our tramping up the Charming Creek trail.

Everything about this visit was excellent: the cosy and very clean rooms, the place, and of course the host Gay Sweeny. She provided me with many tips for my stay and onward journey and is generally a great source of knowledge. I can only recommend a stay at the Charming Creek Bed and Breakfast! Norman

Gay welcomed us in the parking lot. Her home is lovely. She gave us a great tip for dinner, which was only 4 minutes away. The room was big and spotlessly clean. The breakfast was delicious. We could hear the Tasman Sea roaring. Perfect.
