We spend 2 nights in the B&B. Peter and his dog Charlie were very welcoming. Driving from Auckland in the evening, Peter was waiting for us with a great dinner (3 big delicious courses (especially the prawn frittata, I couldn't even finish my desert) with good wine too! The bed was very comfortable and we woke up to an amazing... More

We have booked Cliff Edge for 4 nights and extended for another 2 nights, Peter is the most wonderful host, we felt like coming home every evening. Absolutely outstanding dinner with interesting guests from around the world. We will try to get back end of the year. Birgit&Günter- Hawke's Bay/ Germany

We have just returned home after 6 weeks in New Zealand. Cliff Edge is by far the best D,B&B Boutique Lodge that we stayed in, with superb furnishings & fabulous views. We thoroughly enjoyed our 3 nights there at the end of January. Peter Meier is a great chef and the 3 different wines he served for each course were... More

The facility was run down. Dirty and flies. Dirty carpet. The place needs a rehab! Very dirty kitchen. Food debris and dog hair all over. No screens and the front door is left opened all day leaving every insect you can imagine into the facility and your luggage. Very poor parking and access to the property.

Dear Norm M I am intrigued, for a number of reasons. Firstly as I have checked over the past 2 month and have found no one with these initials followed by a surname that starts with M.,or it could be that it was written by a competitor Be it as it may - your review shows the pitfalls / shortcomings...

My family of 5 stayed at Peter's place for three nights in late December 2014. I have read the few negative comments and wanted to share my thoughts with others considering a stay at Cliff Edge. In short, we loved his place, as did my 3 teenagers. The complaining guests had very different experiences than us, apparently. We felt like... More

We had the good fortune to stay in this stunning accommodation for 3 nights and only wish it could have been longer. Both the views and the food had to be seen to be believed. Peter could not have been kinder to us and did far more than was expected to make sure we were happy and had everything we... More

Dramatically perched on a cliff, as per the name. Upper level is the beautifully decorated common area and dining room, with panoramic views of the water. The magnificent wooden topped side tables are made by Peter from reclaimed prehistoric Kauri wood that had been submerged under water. Bedrooms are a good size with spacious bathrooms, with towel heaters. He has... More

A big thank you to Peter for sharing his home with us and making our stay in Opua quite special. We stayed for 6 nights and during that time Peter worked very hard to please us. I read the review below by Ann G and definitely cannot agree with her opinion of Peter as we found him to be always... More

Property described & branded as lodge w/spacious suite & private balcony. Upon arrival we were shocked to find this was nothing more than a B&B, no suite but a bedroom w/bathroom and the “so called private balcony” wasn’t private when you can’t even sit outside because the man in the next room is sitting on his balcony in his robe...

Stayed recently with my wife. The views from the room are amazing and the food was second to none, cooked by the owner Peter who appeared to spend most of the day in the kitchen. He has created a very relaxed and luxurious environment in this spectacular area and I would return without hesitation!
