We stayed for one night at the end of our stay in New Zealand. This is the best Bed and Breakfast I have ever stayed at - it’s more like an upmarket hotel. Our room, which was clean, spacious and comfortable, was on the ground floor and opened out onto a little patio overlooking the beautiful gardens. Breakfast was excellent with a wide choice of food and there was also a cooked option if we had wanted it. The airport is only about 8 km away and very easy to get to. Highly recommended.

We stayed several nights in November. Margaret and Paul are warm, gracious hosts who offered great travel tips and even searched local bookshops for a used book we were after while we were out having fun. The breakfasts were simply wonderful, with a full choice of continental items as well as eggs and breakfast meats cooked to order. Our room was large and spotlessly clean; it had a nicely appointed bathroom, in-room coffee and tea, and a private patio opening onto a stunning garden. The St. James is located in a leafy suburb convenient to the airport and to restaurants. We look forward to staying there again.

We stayed here for one night after returning our campervan and before heading to the airport. It was a lovely and comfortable place to land. What we loved: clean, spacious, in room coffee, beautiful balcony/outside areas to sit in, walking distance to restaurants, and beautiful walking paths through the nearby reserve. Margaret was gracious enough to do our laundry, and Paul took us to the airport. It helped tremendously with the scramble/anxiety that you feel at the end of a busy trip. I highly recommend this home for a little bit of extra comfort after you’ve just arrived in NZ, or prior to your departure!

I stayed at this place for several nights. It exceeded all expectations - fantastic room with great bathroom (had the downstairs room). Modern, lots of nice details, spotless & super clean. I liked the privacy of the garden. Owners Margaret and Paul are very welcoming and prepared to meet any need. Personally loved the dog & cat, both are cute and friendly.
