We had a lovely few days with Jane and Ian who were the perfect hosts. Delicious breakfasts with great conversation. Their local knowledge was very helpful and gave us lots of ideas for places to go. The garden room was clean an comfortable and our dog Lennon loved the garden as did we. Grapes and bananas straight from the trees, delicious! We ended up coming back for another night as we had a breakdown and were stranded, Jane and Ian were extremely kind to pick us up from 55km away and bring us back to Whangerei. Were are so grateful for their kindness and will definitely be back.
Having travelled around New Zealand for 5 weeks we now want to thank Jane and Ian for the wonderful days you gave us when we had just landed from Denmark. The B&B flat was nice and clean, Jane's breakfasts and homemade jams and marmelades were delicious, and the hints you both gave us as to things to see and do were most interesting and welcome, among these were Ruapekapeka. Highly recommendable place with all the facilities we needed.
Jane and Ian were excellent hosts. Ian has a wealth of very interesting knowledge of the world so thoroughly enjoyed our conversations. Their garden was amazing which was enjoyed by 2 little pooches in the garden unit that was fully fenched. Thanks Jane and Ian for your great breakfasts.
Top Storey was a great little place to stay. There is a good view, esp on the drive there from the town centre. A scenic 15 mins drive to town/shops and cafes etc. Warm hospitality, and Jane and Ian go out of their way to make you comfortable. And our dog Zach just loved it.
