My husband and I have just returned from a two-night romantic getaway at Moon Gate Villa and we both agree it is by far the best B&B we have ever stayed at in New Zealand. The hosts are friendly, helpful and unobtrusive; the accommodation immaculate and luxurious. I loved all the little touches; for example the fresh flowers and chocolates... More

My husband and I found this most glorious accommodation 4 years ago on our first visit together from England.

Our host, Lionel, was very friendly and welcoming. The whole building is only about 10 years old and so everything looks new. It is inset down a 50... More

Private balcony ideal for sitting out at night looking at stars and milky way with almost no light pollution. Can only describe it as brilliant and superb value for money. Lionel as host is friendly and really helpful. Would definitely... More
