On the Beach B & B
Ranked #12 of 43 Whitianga B&B and Inns
Reviewed November 10, 2011

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.

We have done quite a bit of world travelling and we would rate this as the best B&B we have ever stayed in!
The location is superb having the beach at the bottom of the garden, the views are exquisite - across the bay to the sunrise and the gentle swish of the waves on sand lulled us to sleep.
Our room had every facility we could want including fridge with fresh milk and iced water in the dressing room, nightlight in the ensuite bathroom, and homemade chocolates on the tea/coffee tray every night.
The hospitality of Diana and Gordon was fabulous from the tea and cakes on arrival, the evening meal (if pre-ordered), the volunteered washing and ironing and the friendly late evening drinks (with rugby on a huge screen at the right time of year). Their friendlyness could not be faulted.
They do indeed succeed in their aim for you to arrive as a guest and to leave as a friend!
