“Wonderful place with great hosts!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2010

We stayed at the Purple Chickens for only one night, but it was a great stay - we whished we could stay longer! Bev and her husband are very nice and helpful. We could use their phone to find out where the 'tame' dolphin Moko is ... a great hint from her! The room is huge, the ensuite bathroom very clean and the B&B is located in a very quiet neighbourhood. The room had fruits, homemade cake, a fridge, microwave, boiler, .... everything! And the hot breakfast in the morning was very delicious. So we can really recommend the B&B - the best value for your money in Whakatane!
