This B&B is right by the waters edge and within a few minutes walk of the main attractions in Akaroa (the restaurants and the quayside). It's not the cheapest B&B you will find but it is very good value - the room quality is very high (way beyond the quality you will find in most hotels) and the breakfast was excellent. The hosts, Sharon and Ian, are charming and were extremely helpful - we did the swimming with dolphins trip on our last morning and although we had to move out of our room as new guests were arriving they kindly provided another room to shower and change in when we got back. All in all a very pleasant stay.
