Our first time to New Zealand and 'On The Beach' has to be amongst the best bed and breakfast we have ever stayed in. The owners Gordon and Diana are great fun and a mine of information. We arrived during the Rugby World Cup final which New Zealand won narrowly, and made for a memorable evening
celebrating with the hosts, local folk and some French supporters. The setting is wonderful looking out over Simpsons Beach, a mile long crest of sand. The room was excellent and as other posters have mentioned well provided. The spa bath was good fun with a glass of
wine and a view looking out to sea. There is so much to do in the area including Hot water Beach, Cathedral Cove, Coromondel Town and if you can find the path the beautiful, secluded New Chums Beach.
Finally, if Gordon knows the nationality of the visitors (and has the flag) he will put their country flag up the flag pole - a nice touch. The Scottish Saltire flew proudlu for 3 days.
