We spent three nights in luxury between Christmas and New Year at this outstanding B&B. This is a stunning property. Our hosts, Valerie and Roger, shared our views on most things, so a favourite part of our day was during the scrumptious breakfast when we shared such interesting conversations. There are some beautiful places to visit within a short drive,... More

My wife and I wanted a quiet boutique B&B to spend the weekend together away from Auckland and decided to book ourselves into Brantome Villa because of the great reviews it has garnered in TA and also because it is situated in Whangarei which is a city that we have drove past many times while we are heading up to...

This is a total luxury B&B. it is located a short drive from Whangarei in peaceful countryside overlooking a small ornamental lake. Our room was more like a small apartment with a large lounge, separate bedroom, lovely bathroom and doors to a gorgeous deck where you can take in the view and watch the sun set. The British expat hosts... More

What a fabulous discovery. Having cancelled our hotel accommodation after one night of poor service we were disparate to find alternative lodgings. We were so lucky to pick Brantome Villa as it was the perfect replacement. Roger and Valerie are charming hosts and their accommodation is spacious and very comfortable. Nothing was too much trouble. You can either be fussed... More

Having travelled often in the area, we were fortunate that the City was booked out accomodation wise and we found Brantome Villa just north. Roger and Valerie were very welcoming and friendly, even chased us all over Whangarei when we left a bag on leaving. The Villas were very comfortable, modern and beautifully finished. The setting was amazing , beside... More

The accommodation was beautifully furnished within lovely, spacious grounds very well kept. Valarie and Roger were the ideal hosts - friendly and welcoming without being intrusive. The breakfasts were tasty, well cooked and nicely presented. We would highly recommend Brantome Villa. Thank you for all you did to make our stay so memorable.

This was our first experience of B & B's in NZ and we certainly weren't disappointed. The house had been completely refurbished/rebuilt by the present owners, Roger and Valerie, who are really friendly and professional hosts. It is now modern with all you could wish for and immaculately presented. Each room was a complete suite with sitting room, and ours... More

Brantome Villa is picturesque B&B, situated on a country road with views of a lake. The rooms are beautifully decorated. The bathroom is AMAZING. Heated towel rack, huge sink, multiple shower heads, etc. The hosts are extremely helpful and friendly, but definitely gave us our space.

We stayed for three nights. Everything was perfect: accommodation, breakfast and the New Year's dinner. Special thanks to flawless and friendly hosts Valerie and Roger who made our stay enjoyable. We enjoyed every minute, especially relaxing at the lake side. One of the best B&Bs we have visited. Highly recommended place to stay and relax.
