After having to unexpectedly leave our previous accommodation, we located Landing Cottage with some luck and assistance - and what a find. Ian and Elaine were delightful hosts, treading that fine line of privacy and openness astutely, and when we left it felt like we had known them for ages. The bed was comfortable, the facilities were spacious, all the... More

We've just spent another weekend in Kerikeri, and as usual we stayed at Landing Cottage. It's still the best place to stay when in Kerikeri. Hospitality is still great, food is still great, and overall a lovely winter break.

This is the best B & B you will find. We had a spacious bedroom with garden view and our own lounge, with pleasant outdoor seating also. A fridge, and ample tea & coffee making facilities were supplied for our use. The breakfasts were excellent, the supply of towels exceptional, and the cleanliness could not be faulted. Our hosts Elaine... More

What a wonderful welcome to New Zealand! Ian and Elaine have a great accommodation. Their breakfasts are delicious and beautiful; the rooms are comfortable and lovely; and the best part is their travel advice. We had some general ideas about what we wanted to see and do, and they provided additional information that made it easy to plan our days.... More

We booked at the last minute and arrived late in the afternoon as we were in need of a base as our daughter was having her first baby at the Bay of Islands Hopsital that night. Ian and Elaine were so welcoming and accommodating we wished we could have spent more time with them. The accommodation was first class, comfortable,... More

Sorry we couldn't have spent more time with you, babies will insist on being born in anti-social hours. We felt priveliged to share your happiness on baby's safe arrival. We hope you can come again in more normal circumstances. More

We arrived at Landing Cottage during the afternoon of Christmas Day to be greeted by Ian and Elaine. As soon as we arrived and met the hosts we knew our stay was going to be different. I can only say that Ian and Elaine made us so welcome we didn't want to leave. The accommodation is first class, the breakfasts... More

Full marks to Elaine and Ian for running such a top B & B! It was a pleasure to stay in their lovely home, so peaceful and private, and to have their tips on where to go and what to do. They were able to provide that perfect blend of great service, yet giving us the space and privacy to... More
