We returned to Akaroa to walk the Banks Peninsular track for a second time and had enjoyed Rosemary's "Room with a view" B&B last time so we chose to reprise the decision to stay there. Great location a short stroll to Akaroa village combined with a host who made us feel welcomed and provided the best local tourist information that... More

This place and its host are utterly charming, both possessing all that is good about this harbourside town. Rosemary makes a wonderful breakfast with moreish warm croissants and fruit compote with her own homegrown peaches. She shares her local knowledge and gives advice about the area and its attractions in her gentle, friendly manner. This is the place to stay... More

The room is spacious and felt like home, of course with a view of the bay. Rosemary who owns the place is the drawcard of this property. Her breakfast is great and her home baked croissant is divine. Rosemary's knowledge of akaroa and the neighbouring bays is superb! Her recommendations where to dine and booking us herself was very klind.... More

After spending three nights at Rosemary's house "Room with a View" we cannot imagine anywhere better to stay, or a nicer, more welcoming hostess. It is a charming, historic house in a beautiful garden with lovely roses. Our room, with a lovely view of the harbor, was spacious and comfortable with a good bed. Although our room had a TV,...

Stayed with Rosemary in her humble abode, and it was indeed home away from home. We were given good directions as we had called before arriving and located her house with no issue! Each rooms sleeps 2 max so with only 2 rooms you might not be able to find too large a crowd which would be manageable for Rosemary.... More

Rosemary and her home are warm and welcoming. Situated within walking distance of south Akaroa the house has a beautiful garden and views of the bay. Our room was large with a comfortable bed and plenty of space. The bed came with electric blankets which were great. There is a shared bathroom with toilet which wasn't a problem for us.... More

We had a very enjoyable stay with Rosemary - her home is perfect - wonderful view, verandah, lovely garden full of delicious fruit and beautiful plants. The house is delightful and full of charm. Rosemary is amazing! Nothing is too much trouble and we enjoyed her company very much. The place to stay in Akaroa. Jenny and John UK

Loved our stay here even though we found it quite strange that we weren't given keys. The room was huge and the bed very comfortable. The only downside was the shared bathroom. The house is close enough to the town and we had a lovely afternoon on the terrace drinking wine and reading our books. Rosemary even drived us to... More

That’s how we felt when we stepped into Room with a View! This Akaroa trip was a gift for my husband’s birthday. The birthday boy has never been fond of big hotels. So, this B&B looked perfect in the trip advisor page. Rosemary’s warmth made us feel welcomed and as we finished our tea at the veranda while gazing at... More
