Stayed at the New River Blue Gums for two nights over Easter to explore the West Coast. Found our hosts (Michael, Sharon and Harry) very friendly and very knowledgeable of the area, they also added extras to make our stay memorable. The extras included Easter eggs and hot cross buns, the ‘continental’ breakfast was more than the 4 of us... More

My wife and I stayed here in February 2014 on our trip through the South Island. New River Bluegums B&B could not feel more like home while you're away. Michael, Sharon, and Harry make you feel right at home as well, and are extremely warm and accommodating. This is the place to stay around Greymouth.

When we first arrived at New River Bluegums we had booked in for two nights. The welcome we received was warm and friendly and we loved the overall feel of Sharon, Michael and Harry's home, so we extended our stay for a further two days. We played tennis on their court (Harry is an ace player at aged 7!), relaxed... More

We stayed here for one night, it has a one bedroom apartment with a sofa converting to a double bed which I told was a bit uncomfortable, the shower room would suit a invalid, the shower room was a wet room shower, which was very modern, and in the morning the owner came over with a tray full of breakfast...

Excellent food.What makes this place special are the hosts - laid back but very friendly with lots of knowledge about the local and wider area. Our itinerary only allowed a 1 night stay... More

We spent 2 nights in one of the cottages in mid Feb and had a wonderful time. The hosts are incredibly friendly and do everything to make you feel at home and at the same time as guests. They even looked after our baby while we played tennis with their son (don't be fooled by the fact he is only... More

We stayed at New River Bluegums for just one night in one of the outside cottages, towards the end of our holiday in NZ. The place was fantastic, from the very friendly greeting (with home-made brownies), to farm animals, wonderful unit and excellent breakfast. We would have no hesitation recomending this place to anyone looking for a place to stay... More

We spent a night here en route further south and really enjoyed it. It's a peaceful homely environment and Sharon&Michael are very good hosts. You're made to feel one of the family immediately. Our breakfast the next morning was delicious and we had a lovely long chat with Sharon&Michael who were more than happy to provide us with more information... More

We stayed the night of 11/11/12. We typically haven't stayed in many B&Bs in the past, but we will definitely do more in the future, since it's a great way to mingle with the natives. We were in the outdoor cottage. This was more like being put up in a country estate. It was incredibly quiet and rustic, but with... More
