“Just lovely ”
Reviewed February 11, 2014 via mobile

Arrived in a bit of a rush & found our room ready, clean & calm. Hosts just let us get on with our day. Beautiful & very clean rooms, great amenities in the bathroom (eg, body wash, moisturizer etc). Good breakfast - both cooked and cereal/fruit.

Thanks for a lovely stay!

I secretly booked my husband and I in to Accent House for his birthday. We couldn't have asked for a more relaxing way to spend the weekend. Our hosts Terry and Donna were incredibly accommodating, they felt more like good friends by the time we headed home. The facilities were immaculate and very comfortable. Breakfast was delicious and very generous, providing the best way to start a day of exploring the local area. The spa pool was the perfect place to unwind at the end of the day and to enjoy watching the stars from. We would both highly recommend staying at Accent House!

"Accent House Boutique Bed and Breakfast ... hosted by Terry and Donna...provided my daughter and me with a warmth of hospitality which cannot be surpassed. Warm, pristine, and luxurious rooms, accompanied by substantial and luscious breakfasts, offered us a fantastic base for our cycling holiday around beautiful Mapua. In particular, I would want to say how much our hosts, Terry and Donna, were warm, friendly, helpful, and generous towards us. The beautiful grounds and bubbling spa pool were a special "extra", which we very much appreciated. I cannot speak too highly of this very special holiday experience."

Room Tip: All rooms are fabulous

A bird left its mark on me earlier in the day and my husband commented that it would be lucky. Well how true that was. We were directed to Donna and Terry,s sumptuous B&B by the chap in the local liquor store. There is absolutely nothing to fault it and our hosts couldn't have been more delightful or helpful going way beyond the call of duty. Definitely the best B&B we have encountered whilst travelling the length and breadth of NZ. We loved every minute of it and were sad to leave.

Donna and Terry were perfect hosts, nothing was too much trouble, even getting up at 5.00 in the morning so we could catch the ferry from Picton. Breakfasts were very filling with Terry BBQing it! Offered sound advice on local amenities and trips.

The accommodation was brilliant with spacious bedrooms and bathrooms.Lots of lovely touches including nightlights in the bathroom so you could find your way in the dark.

Value for money.

It is not often you find the perfect B&B but this is one of them. Lovely spacious rooms, large and well appointed bathrooms and everything on hand to make your stay enjoyable. Donna & Terry were great hosts and made us feel part of their family.Feeding the eels after sharing a bottle of very good red wine from the Nelson region with them on a balmy evening was great. Very sorry to leave.

This was a 5 star experience. Their is a well equipped guests lounge for relaxation. A terrace outside faces the setting sun and we were invited to "help ourselves" to drinks in the fridge - no charge (presumably with moderation!).
The breakfast was extensive. Too much!
And the extra help in taking us down to the wharf to meet guests of the wedding we attended was very much appreciated too.
Just go there and feel completely "at home".

Room Tip: Choose for morning or evening sun as you prefer.
