“We felt right at home during our stay.”
Reviewed April 23, 2011

We thoroughly enjoyed our one night stay at the Banksia B & B. Our hosts were very welcoming and friendly and the setup they have for guests worked great for us! We were traveling with my father-in-law and we had separate bedrooms but shared a bathroom. The bathroom was clean and spacious and easily accessible for both of our rooms. Outside our room we also had access to a family room area where we could watch tv, make coffee and use our laptop to catch up on email. That is especially a nice feature for those who do not have the same sleep schedule as those we travel with! We also had easy access to an adjoining room where we could enjoy a friendly game of pool and use of a refrigerator. In the morning we enjoyed a delicious continental breakfast including delicious homemade muffins, fresh fruit, yogurt, etc. We look forward to another trip to New Zealand and an opportunity to spend more time at Banksia!

The location was great Acacia Bay is lovely and quiet. Carmen and Kevin were really friendly and informative. The breakfasts were good, Carmen's French toast is a must for you to try.... The beds were so comfortable and everything you would need was catered for.
