A friendly and relaxing Bed And Breakfast in original surroundings. Rooms beautifully decorated with varying memorabilia. Sharon and Noel are excellent and interesting hosts, also very helpful about information on Akaroa and things to do and where to eat.

Beautiful B&B. Noel & Sharon are wonderful hosts and a really lovely couple, we enjoyed our evening drinks & nibbles with them. The house is impeccable and filled with lots of treasures. The gardens are beautiful and a lovely way to relax at the end of the day. We booked the Fyfe room which was beautifully decorated. We really appreciated... More

Noel and Sharon were perfect hosts and so welcoming. We had a night at Beaufort for a wedding anniversary and really enjoyed the peaceful surroundings. There was great attention to comfort, and we enjoyed beautiful canapes with wine from their own grapes and then a delicious breakfast We would recommend this B&B for a special weekend

WE stayed at this B & B for a special treat weekend with elderly parents. Sharon, Noel and Jane couldn't have been more helpful. They thought of everything and the rooms are all beautifully appointed with lovely amenities. Breakfast makes you feel like royalty. In the evening you even get wine made with grapes from their vineyard. Highly recommended.

Beautiful house with great amazing food. The host couple are so friendly, and they cooked best smoked salmon I've ever tried. The house is decorated with all dedicated and fine furniture, which make it a dream house to us.

My wife and I stayed one night here for a romantic weekend away from Christchurch. Noel and Sharon were fantastic hosts; very generous with their time, and their delicious food and drink. Really, everything was perfect, and nothing was too much trouble. We would certainly come again.

The perfect start to our holiday in NZ. Beautiful welcome. Comfortable rooms. Every detail was amazing and our hosts very personable. Would have loved to stay longer. Cannot recommend this highly enough. Akaroa is beautiful. Beaufort house the perfect way to enjoy it.

We had a family get together and took 3 rooms. The occasion was perfect due to the wonderful house, fantastic service and breakfast. Sharon provided outstanding hospitality for our family. Would love to return some time.
