We booked in to one of the double rooms, fully equipped with all we needed, nice deck to sit out on and eat our delicious breakfast. Comfortable bed, very clean and spacious. Shane and Andrea were great, interesting, friendly hosts with plenty of information about the area, what to do and where to eat etc. The location is really good with easy access to plenty of beautiful locations, sights and towns in the area. A good choice and we wish them well.
There are people who do service and then there’s Shane and Andrea. From the first greeting to the final goodbye, the service at this B&B is second to none. Helped us arrange a superb two day stay and made sure we had everything we needed - amazing Kiwi hospitality. Cooks Beach is beautiful and tranquil and somewhere not to be missed. Absolutely loved our stay and the hosts made it extra special - many thanks.
This B&B is wonderfully comfortable, very well equipped and is full of nice little touches. It is very stylish in its decor too. The three rooms open onto a small terrace and then an extensive garden. The room has plenty of space and seats. There is a good quality coffee machine as well as a range of teas and chilled water is ready in the fridge. The extra little touches are dressing gowns, hot pipes on all the time to dry the towels and the undies, a drying rack, and fresh flowers in the bathroom. Highly recommended.
Mussel Bed B&B is a perfect example of how a B&B should be. Great Hosts, tranquil location, excellent accommodation with lots of thought on detail for what you need (that we all take for granted but not Shane and Andrea). Add the local knowledge and guidance needed to enjoy/explore the area and then a bumper breakfast to please everyone why would you need anything more. Go!
We visited the Mussel Bed Boutique B&B in late March of 2019 and were delighted with our stay and with our host and hostess! The beds were comfy and the refrigerator in our stand-alone cottage was well-stocked. It was a beautiful location and they were quite helpful in recommendations for eating and attractions. I would definitely stay there again! We stayed in the 2-bedroom cottage with one bedroom downstairs and one up. The single bathroom/shower is downstairs with no outlets. Hair drying was done outside of the bathroom. There were plenty of outlets for charging devices and batteries.
