“Wentworth Heights, Gore New Zealand”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2013

This is our third stay with Barry and Diane and it just keeps getting better.This applies to the fishing and the hospitality. Everything they do is absolutely 6 star!
Thanks Diane for accommodating my dietary needs and for the absolutely delicious sandwiches. We'll be back!
Barry, despite the inclement weather I have never had so much success and fun with fly fishing. You, as always, pick the right spots for my level of expertise, and achieve your goals..a very satisfied and happy client.
Thank you for making this trip so memorable.
Cheers
Sam and Gill (Melbourne)

From the moment we arrived, we felt welcome and valued. We received some light refreshments on arrival and also had a helpful, relaxed and interesting chat about the area around Gore, and New Zealand life more generally. The en-suite bedroom was furnished to a very high standard and included a plentiful supply of tea, coffee and cookies! Breakfast was extremely yummy and included some delicious home-made preserves and some light muffins to die for!

The wifi worked well. The house was immaculate. The hospitality was outstanding, and included the opportunity to use a downstairs room to watch DVDs etc. Diane and Barry even arranged a spectacular sunset to enhance our photo album!

If you are in the Gore area, this is definitely the place to stay.

Diane and Barry run an excellent B&B. Only 5 minutes drive from Gore town centre it is still quiet and peaceful. Rooms are spacious and each guest has their own bathroom. There is also a separate guest lounge although Diane and Barry treated us more as friends than paying guests. We were in Gore for the fishing, but Diane had lots of suggestions for things to see and do. We are looking forward to going back next trout season.

Having travelled all over England, Scotland, and Australia I can honestly say this is the best. Diane & Barry are the perfect hosts and the accommodation and surrounds are just great. Breakfast is almost too much, though we didn't complain. Barry's knowledge of the rivers made our trip most memorable, while Diane was always ready to book restaurants for us. My wife is fairly new to dry fly fishing but Barry made sure she hooked into some great brown trout. We stayed for two weeks in December 2012 and have already re-booked for two weeks in March 2014 for my 70th birthday. Barry also ties the most beautiful size 16s & 18s flies which my failing eyesight can no longer do. Can't wait to get back. Stuart & Vicki Mckinnon, Khancoban,NSW.

Barry and Diane are wonderful hosts and they made us and the rest of the wedding party feel very comfortable and welcome in their home. The breakfasts were excellent and the beds very comfortable. The beautiful garden setting was an excellent site for pre-wedding photos and has given us some lovely memories. Thanks so much for being so accommodating.

Diane and Barry are such excellent hosts, incredibly accommodating to personal requirements (very much appreciated). They treat each guest as if they are family. By the time we left (we stayed two nights), we had an invitation to call in and see them whenever we are back in the area. Very comfortable rooms and separate living area for guests was very welcome. Breakfasts were divine (I don't remember when I ate that much at breakfast!) and I came away with a wonderful recipe for her home made muesli! Definitely recommended!
