I have to start this review with a special note of the hostess who lives there with her pet. She is so active and has maintained the place, garden and rooms so nicely. Her husband, a handsome man in his probable 40's or 50's is very cool and friendly. The house almost like a castle was bought by the couple... More

As noted by previous reviews, this wonderful house is about 10 minutes outside of Greymouth. But that should not detract you from making this your first choice whilst touring the rugged and rustic West Coast of New Zealand. Joy is an engaging and friendly host. She has an inexhaustible knowledge of the area's attractions and makes no secret she is... More

Our family of 5 adults stayed for a night at the end of 2011 sometime after Christmas. We were warmly welcomed by Joy and Crash and after an excellent meal at a nearby restaurant recommended by Joy we were shown around her beautiful garden. We loved the beautiful flowers, plants and trees in her garden and were very impressed with... More

This B&B is a little out of the way, but a very pleasnt quiet place, and we thoroughly recommend it. Joy our hostess was great. Soon after we arrived she gave us all a tour of her lovely rainforest garden, which she puts a lot of time and effort into. We met the farm animals, and in the evening sat... More

Stayed here for 2 nights December 2011. The house is surrounded by pretty rainforests and trees, and there are paths out the back to explore. Joy, the host, was friendly enough although a little melancholic about the b&b business, occasionally giving the sense that she didn't really want to be there- which was a little off-putting. Having come home late... More

This is an excellent B&B near Greymouth, South Island. Both the house and garden is well kept and nicely maintained. We stayed in the Queen Room which overlooks the garden and the room is kept neat and spotless. Even though it was raining while we were there, we were happy to stay indoors where Joy kept a fire going which... More

I loved it here! Joy, John & Crash were so welcoming and 'Salt of the Earth' hosts. Being here reminded me so much of a very happy time in my childhood with the sheep, chucks & ducks. The house was very comfortable and Joy's garden was wonderful. I could quite happily have unpacked my bags and stayed forever..... Thank you... More

Dear Joy and John, it was a great pleasure to be your guests. We found a clean and comfortable accommodation. In particular, we wish to highlight the hospitality of Joy, John and your old dog Crash. Joy showed us the well-tended garden and the secrets of the rain forest on your property. We also got to know your sheep and... More

My partner and I stayed at the Chapel Hill B&B this Dec 2010. Both Joy and John ( and Crash the dog) were very hospitable and welcoming, paying attention to detail of all our possible needs. The house is kept very clean and is set in a lush garden, nestled between native wetland and farmland. The house itself is situated... More
