Sue and Neil are fantastic hosts! Very accommodating from their warm welcome, to afternoon refreshments, to expert advice about making the most of our vacation days. The room was comfortable, quiet, large, and with a view of friendly horses on the adjacent property. This was the first and only time we've ever photographed breakfast; with quality well deserving of recognition.... More

Taken a few months to write this, but it really was the best B&B we stayed in while visiting NZ. Neal and Sue could not have been more accommodating, the drinks and nibbles every evening were great, as was the conversation. Great room, great view, lovely town, top quality hosts, great breakfast, I don't know what more anyone could want.... More

Lovely house with nice rooms. Sue and Neil are great hosts and evening drinks with them really enjoyable. We took the option to eat in - good decision on our part - food and wine delightful. Neil kindly got up really early and prepared great breakfast before our White Island excursions. Would definitely recommend a stay if you are in... More

The hosts were amazing. Went out of their way to ensure we had a relaxing stay in their beautiful home. Organised restaurant bookings and offered to drive us there. We chose to walk a pleasant 30 minute walk along the river bank. Home baking in our room when we arrived as well as goodnight chocolates and port. An invite to... More

We spent a brief 2 nights in the Tuscan room. The comfortable room has a nice corner window that looks out onto a beautiful garden, with a small patio table and chairs, in a quiet residential neighborhood. Sue and Neil welcome you into their home as if they have known you all your life. There is a small refrigerator in... More

Another great discovery thanks to TripAdvisor! We stayed here for a night on the way back from Napier to Hamilton. The B&B was every bit as good as other reviewers had said and we enjoyed our stay. Indeed, we were wishing we could stay longer! The house is impressive and backs onto a paddock (with gently grazing horses) and the... More

Sue and Neil made us welcome and we felt very much at home. Our room had a very pleasant patio and open view towards the riverside path, accessible nearby. Our room was immaculate and provided for all our needs, including a delicious homemade afternoon tea. We looked forward to an early evening chat with our hosts over wine and cheese.... More

I agree with all the previous comments...Neil and Sue could not be more welcoming hosts in their lovely home. The location was great (easy walk or ride to town), room was comfortable, the bathroom spacious, clean and efficient (loved the tub and REALLY strong shower!), nice outdoor verandah and private garden.... but what really sets this place apart is the...

Sue and Neil are excellent hosts. We spent two nights with them in late February and felt that they really went the extra mile to make us welcome in their home and to share their knowledge of their local area with us. From the welcome afternoon tea (specially made to be gluten free for us), through pre-dinner drinks on the... More
