“The Aussie Golfers' Lucky Find”
Reviewed March 21, 2014

Having travelled often in the area, we were fortunate that the City was booked out accomodation wise and we found Brantome Villa just north. Roger and Valerie were very welcoming and friendly, even chased us all over Whangarei when we left a bag on leaving. The Villas were very comfortable, modern and beautifully finished. The setting was amazing , beside the lake. We will highly recommend this B and B to our friends.

Apologies for my delay in responding, it's been a bit manic around here, which is all good! However, we would like to thank you for taking the time to write a TripAdvisor Review, we really do appreciate it.
We hope you enjoyed your Golf trip around the Northland area and glad we were able to reunite you with your bag.

The accommodation was beautifully furnished within lovely, spacious grounds very well kept. Valarie and Roger were the ideal hosts - friendly and welcoming without being intrusive. The breakfasts were tasty, well cooked and nicely presented.

We would highly recommend Brantome Villa. Thank you for all you did to make our stay so memorable.

Dear Peter M,

Thank you so much for taking the time out of your busy day to place a TripAdvisor review. Roger & I are so glad that you enjoyed your stay, thank you for the 'Highly Recommended' most appreciated. We love meeting people from all over the world & from all different walks of life, however, we understand that people like to have their privacy; this is why all Suites have their own private lounge, along with a bedroom & bathroom or en-suite, for your comfort. We hope you had a safe journey home & maybe we will see you again one-day.

Warmest regards

This was our first experience of B & B's in NZ and we certainly weren't disappointed. The house had been completely refurbished/rebuilt by the present owners, Roger and Valerie, who are really friendly and professional hosts. It is now modern with all you could wish for and immaculately presented. Each room was a complete suite with sitting room, and ours overlooked and opened out to the garden and lake beyond - quite something to wake up to. The bathroom was large and had a modern suite including a double-ended bath with choice of overhead or hand shower. The garden had a gazebo for lazing around, but we chose to spend most of the time seeing all that the local area had to offer. Many people head straight up from Auckland to the Bay of Islands but we decided to stop over here on the way and it was a great choice. Valerie and Roger advised us where to go and the highlight was a very scenic drive round the Whangerai Heads and back inland via the hills - a magical trip. We stayed two nights and had a superb freshly cooked breakfast each day. The large double bed was amazingly comfortable.

Room Tip: Definitely ask for a suite facing the garden and lake.

Dear Rose-of-the-Shires,

Thank you so much for taking the time to place TripAdvisor feedback it is so very appreciated; it's so helpful to other prospective guests.
Roger & I are glad you enjoyed your first experience staying at a B&B, & the King Lakeview Suite does have a fab bathroom & wonderful views from both it's bedroom & it's lounge & with room to sit on the veranda watching the sun setting! I think; like yourselves, people at last are realizing that Whangarei does have wonderful places to visit, like Whangarei Heads or the Tutukaka Coast are all just waiting to be explored & not just by-pass Whangarei on their way to the BOI. We think that Brantome Villa is ideally situated to explore these places as well as a day trip to the Bay of Islands!

Warmest regards
Valerie & Roger

Brantome Villa is picturesque B&B, situated on a country road with views of a lake. The rooms are beautifully decorated. The bathroom is AMAZING. Heated towel rack, huge sink, multiple shower heads, etc. The hosts are extremely helpful and friendly, but definitely gave us our space. They suggested different fun activities for us in the area and provided all the necessary amenities, including beach towels. If you're traveling here during the busy season and want to book guided activities, I definitely recommend booking at least a week or so in advance. Close to Whangarei but a little bit of a drive to the Tutukaka Coast, Bay of Islands, etc.

Dear Kate M,
Thank you so much for your TripAdvisor review. Roger & I were glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay in the King Lakeview Suite with large bathroom. That Suite does enjoy fab view's over the garden, pond & ever changing colours of the distant hills beyond.
Thank you also for encouraging prospective guests to pre-book activities ahead of their stay so they don't miss out.

We stayed for three nights. Everything was perfect: accommodation, breakfast and the New Year's dinner. Special thanks to flawless and friendly hosts Valerie and Roger who made our stay enjoyable. We enjoyed every minute, especially relaxing at the lake side. One of the best B&Bs we have visited. Highly recommended place to stay and relax.

We stayed 2 nights at Brantome Villa and we enjoyed every minutes of it.
The villa is very quiet and is located 15 mins drive from Whangarei city center.

The suite was spotless, decorated with taste and very confortable (huge bed, TV in the living area and TV in the bedroom, SKY TV, internet access...).
Roger and Valerie are wonderful hosts. We had great chats during the beautiful breakfasts.
