My wife and I stayed in 7 different B&B's during our winter trip to New Zealand. We were amazed by them all, but The Foxes must have been the most luxurious. Everything was top-of-the line...room, bed, bath, gardens, view, breakfasts! Margaret and Horton were perfect hosts. Unfortunately, we were so busy with activities, we didn't get to spend as much time with them as we would have liked! If you're in the area, don't skip this one.
