We stayed at Redcliffe for 3 nights over the Art Deco Weekend. I can only wholeheartedly endorse everything that has been said in the prevous reviews. Tea and homemade chcocolate brownies on arrival was our introduction to a stay that exceed our expections. We stayed in the luxurious and spacious Burgundy room with its private verandah where we could sit in peaceful, lush garden surroundings. The modern bathroom had toiletries and soft, thick towels on the electric towel rail (bliss).Breakfast time was flexble. The food delicious and plentiful, the fresh fruit salad and just- baked muffins being my favourite. Sue went to a lot of trouble providing dairy- free options to cater for my lactose intolerance. She is a superb cook and our evening meal was top quality.
Sue and Brian have done a great job in restoring this magnificent homestead. Set in a quiet location, with lawn, garden, trees and a kiwi orchard, it is a special and restful place to holiday. They also make an important contribution to the environment with a strong focus on all aspects of eco awareness in the running of the bed and breakfast. As attentive hosts, the couple made us feel so welcome, and provided a most enjoyable and relaxing environment for our holiday. We will certainly be back again.
