“Quiet, relaxing, beautifully set BnB”
Reviewed February 10, 2014

Set in a stunning rural location on top of a hill with fabulous views - just half an hour north of central Auckland, just off the Coatesville to Riverhead highway - Riverhead has 2 good pubs that also do excellent food - Huapei golf is just out of Riverhead @ a litle further on are a number of wineries - it is no distance at all to Muriwai and Paha on the west coast - rooms are comfortable with excellent beds & large bathrooms - hosts live next door so you have the kitchen and lounge to yourself - & of course there are the lemon & olive trees and the lavender.…

Tricia and Her Amazing Team make Lavender Hill a Luscious, Luxurious Lare for a family of out of town 'Lions and Lionesses' looking for a Perfect Peaceful Getaway :) Woke up feeling on top of the world in a super comfy bed and then treated with a delicious continental breakfast with an array of homemade jams and even greeted by a loveable four legged 'security guard'! Wonderful Service, Great People, Lovely Location. Will definitely be back! A++++++++

This luxury B & B is wonderful by any measure. When considered as accessible accommodation for wheelchair users who have retained a taste for the good things of life it is unbeatable, and definitely in a class of its own anywhere in the world. The accessible bathroom alone which was appointed luxuriously was a delight to a guest all too accustomed to hospital-like bathrooms masquerading as five star in large hotels. Set in a mixed lavender, olive and lemon farm in rolling hills just north west of Auckland and hosted generously by Tricia Henderson it was also a very convenient base to explore the delights of the North Island including the nearby wineries of Kumea if you could tear yourself away from the comfortable sofas and excellent coffee of Lavender Hill.

The guest house is spacious and tranquil and was ideal accomodation for two couples visiting friends in the area. However we felt the cleanliness and "servicing" was lacking, especially in the bedrooms and bathrooms.

We loved our stay in januari. It was so great that we skiped our tours and just enjoyed the lovely place. I took al lot of bees and hummelbees + lavender picuters. Trica is a great and warm hearted host. This acommodation is perfect on the way up North or the way back, close to Auckland. You have your own living room and kitchen.

We stayed there for New Years Ev. Tricia is a lovely and warm-hearted host. We were invited to celebrate New-Years Ev and Johns birthday with them. What a great and unforgettable time.
The next day we enjoyed the fantastic and ambrosial garden and decided to stay there instead to do a tour. The accommodation is perfect for a couple or for a group of friends. You have your own living room and kitchen.
Thank you Tricia for this great memories!!

This is a gorgeous B&B and it's standards of accommodation are far more than you would expect from a normal B&B. The 4 bedroom house is to a new standard and the cleanliness is impeccable. My bridesmaid organised this place as a place to stay the night of our wedding with our bridal party and Tricia (the owner) went above and beyond to make us feel so welcome. I would certainly stay here again when I am back in New Zealand!!! Thank you Tricia for the awesome hospitality!!!
