Very peaceful, homely and luxurious lodgings with great breakfast and late afternoon drinks. The hosts were just wonderful, warm and friendly :) Rooms and bathrooms are not spacious but extremely comfortable with all the facilities and more than one would expect at any 5-star hotel.

Thank you for your thoughtful review - we have recently upgraded 2 of the bathrooms ....being a historic 1878 house, no two rooms are the same .... Noel's evening drinks are well received, an opportune time to catch up on the day's events and socialise with other guests .....

Stayed on a short overnight break away from Christchurch, lovely house in a nice setting and Sharon and Noel are great hosts. We enjoyed the canapés at 6pm and this gave the opportunity to interact with other guests as well as the hosts. Easy walk to town and the selection of restaurants for dining out increased since our last visit...

V comfortable and luxurious b/b in Akaroa. Breakfast served on lovely China, good selection of fruits, cereals etc and hot brekkies cooked to order. The canapés served with wine on the evening were home cooked and delicious, could,nt face going out to dinner afterwards! Mine hosts were a lovely couple and we thoroughly enjoyed our two night stay.

Nestled in lush mature gardens just off the main road, Beaufort House is an imposing Victorian villa. A welcome sign with our names on it hung beside the front door and Sharon welcomed us in. We were shown to our room, not the one we had booked, which was not quite ready, but we were told we could have the...

My husband and I were welcomed into Noel and Sharon's charming and comfortable home and we had a wonderful stay. They are perfect hosts; attentive, professional, efficient and great company- I particularly enjoyed our 6pm aperitifs and canapés! Breakfast was very good, and generous. A wonderful find in an interesting and lovely town. Thank you Sharon and Noel 😊

Staying at Beaufort house made our visit memorable, Sharon and Noel's attention to detail is remarkable. That evening the wine flowed along with the conversation and we couldn't believe that it was then time for the short walk down to the restaurant for dinner. Ringing for a later booking was done without hesitation.

Top class experience - a special trip way. Enjoyed everything and especially the generous hospitality including the canapé's and elegant formal breakfast. All in a beautiful setting in the trees and so close to Akaroa.
