My wife and I stayed at Pleasant view for a night in early May. The host was welcoming and our room had double aspect views out over the bay. The place was spotless, the lounge area and its ammenities were very good and the cooked breakfast was great. All in all it offered reasonable value for money taking 2 cooked... More

We stayed here for a night after a short drive (2 hours) from Christchurch airport. Timaru is a good stop between Christchurch and Dunedin. Rosemary was an excellent host. She welcomed us by the door the moment we pulled onto the driveway, showed us the shared dining/living area and our bathroom. Our king room (water view) was nice. It has... More

This consists of a very modern two storey house on a cliff looking back across a small bay and the Port area towards the commercial part of the town. I wouldn't call them "views to die for" as some have but they are interesting. The room we had took in these views on the ground floor and was pretty large... More

I stayed here last night and was very impressed with this B & B. I felt very looked after in a very clean and tidy environment, fantastic hosts who even opened up their garage for me to store my Harley Davidson in overnight. Thanks for a really great place to stay.

This is a first class B&B run by caring owners who have pitched it absolutely right. Spotlessly clean throughout and well presented. Lovely room with "shared" lounge facilities but not a problem as we were traveling with friends and took over the place. Good advice for where to eat and the breakfast was simply magnificent. Well done - you deserve... More

A warm welcome, a spotless room and a view to die for. Add to that a very nice breakfast with as extra some dolphins coming to say hello in the bay: this is a great place to stay. We only stayed the one night but will be back for a longer stay. This B&B offers a personal service at an... More

This B&B was considered a must to visit from someone who had been before. We arrived and were welcomed by Rosemary who showed us around. We stayed for two nights and it was magnificent. The accommodation is modern, spotless, spacious and caters for your needs. The sitting room is large and comfortable with a small kitchen. The view of Caroline... More

We stayed here for one night. Really clean, modern with everything you need and a lovely view too. Large comfortable kitchen / sitting room. The hosts were very welcoming and nice and they provided good advice on the area. Breakfast was excellent with a lot of extra effort, e.g homemade muesli, bread, jams, fruits and a hot breakfast also. We... More

This was our second visit to Pleasant View. The view from the king bed room is wonderful - sun rising over the water and at night the glittering lights across the bay. The sitting room is comfortable and you have all the privacy you need to feel at home, while Rosemary is on call if you need advice on eateries... More
