I agree with all the previous comments...Neil and Sue could not be more welcoming hosts in their lovely home. The location was great (easy walk or ride to town), room was comfortable, the bathroom spacious, clean and efficient (loved the tub and REALLY strong shower!), nice outdoor verandah and private garden.... but what really sets this place apart is the...

Sue and Neil are excellent hosts. We spent two nights with them in late February and felt that they really went the extra mile to make us welcome in their home and to share their knowledge of their local area with us. From the welcome afternoon tea (specially made to be gluten free for us), through pre-dinner drinks on the... More

Wonderful two night stay! Neil and Sue were friendly and gracious hosts. We felt like guests in their home and enjoyed the evening glass of wine with them both. They went out of their way to give us info on the area and the local sights even offering the use of their golf clubs so we could play the local... More

We debated whether it was worth driving to Whakatane from Cambridge, and then going down to Napier, or just going straight to Hawkes Bay. The decision to spend two nights in Whakatane was the right one, other than we should have stayed longer. As lovely and interesting as the area is, a major reason we enjoyed it so much was... More

We cannot say enough nice things about our stay at Alfresco. Neil and Sue's hospitality was so warm and gracious. The room was very comfortable, and the garden/patio a real delight. We stayed two nights and particularly enjoyed the chance to chat and share a glass (or two) of wine with Neil and Sue in the garden each evening. Breakfast... More

There are many places to choose to stay along the coast along the Bay of Plenty, but Whakatane is a perfect blend of quiet beauty and numerous attractions. And staying at Afresco B&B fit that wonderfully. Neil and Sue were gracious and warm hosts, sharing evening cocktails with us as we swapped experiences and they gave us information about the...

We stayed for one night at Alfresco B&B and were met by host Neil with afternoon tea - home baked tart and tea or coffee. Our room was very comfortable with lovely linen and garden roses by the bedside. We then joined Neil and Sue for nibbles and drinks in the lounge prior to dinner. We had arranged for Neil... More

My husband, my dad and I spent three nights in the very best B&B that we've been so far (and we've seen many!)...it was an absolutely amazing experience! We had both rooms, which were comfortable, cozy and clean! We enjoyed a perfectly cooked and continental breakfast in the morning, got our laundry done, had some sweet treats in our room... More

We stayed here for 4 days R&R during our trip and also to visit White Island. We cannot praise Neil and Sue's hospitality enough - from daily port and chocolates in our room to the delicious food and even filling our kettle for us every day so that we could make our own tea! Nothing was too much trouble and... More

Neil and sue are excellent hosts who have achieved a first class standard in B&B. All aspects excellent particularly the canapés and drinks and the opportunity to chat to neil and sue and other guests. In whakatane the white island tour is a must.
