“The best B & B ever”
Reviewed April 2, 2014

Wonderful hosts; extra large rooms with own ensuites; very extensive breakfasts; beautiful gardens; and a large covered verandah running the full length of the rooms - what more could you want. Right from time of booking 10 months out, the service was tops

An excellent base for the on the go traveller- all facilities you could wish for- exceptional hosts wanting to please and did so- you have all you need here- our room was large and light and we were a stones throw from the lake and a 5 minute walk to the restaurants- highly recommended

A warm welcome awaits you at this excellent B&B. Nice accommodation and excellent breakfast provided by Ray and his family in attractive surroundings for a reasonable price. Though it didn't affect us we could hear the people in the next bedroom talking. Regardless, this is a good place to stay and use as a base for the area.

Great hospitality. We stayed in the Romeo and Juliet room, superb size, very big kitchenette. The B & B is within a easy walk to town along the shoreline, so quiet and peaceful. Sunroom to relax in, laundry facilities, made good use of these.The breakfast room had a very friendly atmosphere chatting to the other guests and a cooked breakfast served by Ray (a great chef) We took a trip to Milford Sound with the BBQ Bus and had a great time.

Just a short walk from town centre and really quiet and peaceful. Lovely rooms with en suites and a sunroom to relax and chat with fellow travelers. Lovely host Margaret was welcoming and cooked a ripper brekky. Would definitely stay again.
