Another great discovery thanks to TripAdvisor! We stayed here for a night on the way back from Napier to Hamilton. The B&B was every bit as good as other reviewers had said and we enjoyed our stay. Indeed, we were wishing we could stay longer! The house is impressive and backs onto a paddock (with gently grazing horses) and the... More

Sue and Neil made us welcome and we felt very much at home. Our room had a very pleasant patio and open view towards the riverside path, accessible nearby. Our room was immaculate and provided for all our needs, including a delicious homemade afternoon tea. We looked forward to an early evening chat with our hosts over wine and cheese.... More

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
