“A wonderful boutique, gourmet lodge”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2010

We have stayed at the Gables a number of times over the past ten years. It is located in the Banks, Peninsula, a spectacularly beautiful part of the South Island. Lin and Chris are charming and attentive hosts. Their meals are exceptional and unique, with almost all the food grown on the premises. The guest room is somewhat small, but very tastefully appointed. We always make a stay at the Gables a part of our itinerary when we are in the Christchurch area.

I found this B & B while looking for places to stay on the South Island. This Bed and Breakfast is tucked away across the bay from Akaroa. The ambiance of the house, the beautifully kept flower gardens, the organic vegetable garden and wonderfully landscaped grounds immediately won me over. The views of the bay and surrounding countryside are spectacular. The hosts, Lyn and Chris, are extremely accommodating to all your needs. There is one beautifully appointed guest room, so prepare to be pampered as you will be the only guests. Both hosts are chefs by trade and provide a delicious breakfast, as well as the opportunity to have dinner cooked for you for a fee. They have a menagerie of animals to enjoy during your stay which adds immensely to the experience.The area around Akaroa has plenty of things to do and experience. You can see little blue penguins and the smallest and rarest dolphins in the world, as well as, New Zealand fur seals. I would highly recommend this Bed and Breakfast for a memorable kiwi experience.....

We just loved The Gables a delightful old country cottage set amongst a charming woodland and old -worldie garden. Lyn and Chris are warm and generous hosts with a passion for food and service. We had wonderful leisurely breakfasts and long interesting conversations about their home, garden and travels. Nothing was a bother and we felt relaxed and welcome to wander their beautiful garden and take advantage of the many 'sitting about places'. The views accross the harbour are stunning. Would definetly recommend The Gables and would love to go back.
