I have just returned from staying at Birdwood House B&B. Barbie and David are super hosts. The room was outstanding cleaned and serviced every day. The breakfast was supberb, with great attention to detail. It is close to public transport and walking distance to shops, and places to eat.
After having a breakfast made by Barbie you need to do some walking because you can't stop eating the fabulous food.

I was on my own and Barbie even offered to do some washing for me. I would highly recommend Birdwood House to anyone.

It would be hard to beat this B & B for many reasons.

It is an oasis of calm, yet close to the City of Auckland and the attractions north of Auckland.

The attention to detail to make one's stay enjoyable is what makes it such a good experience. Barbie put flowers in our room and flew the British flag to welcome us, as well as informing us that we were welcome to use the stylish and comfy guest lounge and help ourselves to Port and chocolates in addition to tea and coffee, both there and in our own room! Nothing seemed too much trouble for Barbie and David from dealing with our unexpectedly early arrival to helping us with tourist advice and routes.

We stayed in the stylish yet homely Kereru room and were instantly impressed by the canopy of trees that surround the building, enabling us to watch and hear the birds. The room was well-lit, the bed very comfortable and a small fridge was provided.The high quality en-suite bathroom had a very modern walk-in shower with plenty of pressure.

The breakfasts were something else. Barbie provided high quality yogurt with fruit puree, cereals, fresh fruits, home-made croissants, home-made jams and marmalades, a variety of fresh juices and full cooked breakfasts, all beautifully prepared and presented. All this on a beautifully laid candle-lit table and efficient, but non-obtrusive service.

We would not hesitate to recommend this B & B and wish we could return.

Room Tip: If you like birdwatching, and being close to nature the Kerelu room is ideal.

We stayed one night at the B&B and were very impressed with the quality of the greeting (including the flying of our national flag outside) from Barbie and Dave and with the quality of the accommodation.

Breakfast was superb and very wholesome.

Overall, I would have no hesitation in recommending this B&B.

I can't give a meaningful view on "location" in terms of exploring Auckland or it's environs since we chose this B&B for proximity to the airport because we had a lunchtime flight the next day - the location proved to be most satisfactory from that point of view.

We just left Barbie and David yesterday morning. What a beautiful bed and breakfast. The food was delicious and our hosts were unbelievably gracious, and their home was gorgeous. We highly recommend staying there. You will not be disappointed.

Its is a beautiful house decorated with the best taste by their wonderful hosts, Barbie and David. The rooms are very spacious, comfortable and beautiful. The bathroom is spotless and spacious with a nice shower. Even the towels are heated. The breakfasts were delicious banquetes. The Birdwood house is conveniently located in a nice residential area not too far not too close to the noisy city.
