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.

Neil and Sue make a great team and have obviously worked very hard to establish their b&b at the top end of the market. They seem to have achieved this by their attention to detail in every aspect of the provision they have made for guests. A great welcome, the extras such as the wonderful baking, and the decanter of... More

Neil and Sue are warm and gracious hosts in their two room B and B. Our room was very comfortable with tea, coffee, freshly baked tarts, port, and chocolates. A well stocked mini-fridge had wines and beer for purchase, which we found to be very thoughtful. They readily offered to drive us to and from restaurants and shared their favorite... More

We had a 1 night stay occupying both of the gorgeous en-suite bedrooms that Neil and Sue have to offer their guests. Our arrival was greeted by home baked 'afternoon tea' and a friendly welcome from our hosts. After a chat and glass or two of wine on the patio, we were offered an evening meal of freshly caught fish... More

The two days spent at the Alfresco B&B have set the benchmark for quality accommodation hospitality and dining - from a beautiful breakfast, afternoon tea and (optional) evening meal which we loved - our "Alfresco Hosts" exceeded every expectation. During our stay we visited White Island ( a real treat) and plenty of advice was available from our hosts regards... More
