“Relaxing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 5, 2009

We have recently returned from a short weekend break at Kerikeri, where we had the pleasure of staying at Landing Cottage. We have stayed at many B and B's both here in NZ and overseas, but Landing Cottage is by far the best. Upon arrival on Friday night, we were welcomed by Elaine and Ian, our friendly and charming hosts. They were more than helpful with advising us on what to see and do in the North, and even offering to organise and book any activity that we should desire. The single party policy meant that we had the whole B and B area to ourselves- like a 3 bedroom house for just the two of us. It is very modern, spacious, tastefully decorated and comfortable. We were presented with a menu from which to choose a sumptuous breakfast. We can honestly say that the breakfast was more like dining in a top class restaurant than a B and B. Top marks. We will return.

We really enjoyed our stay at Landing Cottage. From the moment we arrived, Ian and Elaine made us feel very welcome. The accomodation was superclean (better than any 5star hotel: where do you get clean towels and are the beds freshly made up daily?!!) the spacious rooms are nicely decorated, and the kids especially loved the little attention that awaited them on the bed! Initially we were a little bit worried about staying in a b&b, that it wouldn't be appropriate for a family with children, but it turned out to be great. The kids loved Monet the little dog, and our son just particularely loved his scrambled eggs on toast every morning... the location of the b&b was also very convenient, and our hosts gave us great tips on where to go in the area. We would love to stay with you again, thank you Ian and Elaine!!

We stayed a few days in Keri Keri recently at this awesome B & B run by Ian & Elaine. A fabulous couple who truly care about their guests and their comforts & requirements. The stay was very enjoyable and at no time did we feel crowded by our hosts with the accomodation suites remaining sufficiently apart that you feel you can relax and enjoy your surroundings. The "cuisine" (you couldn't possibly just call it food) was sensational with immaculate presentation and flavours created in tastebud heaven. The location is peaceful and we found it very relaxing yet there is much to see and do in the area. 2 nights were not enough. We will return again to sample some more of this fabulous hideaway. Next time with friends as there is ample room for 2-3 couples travelling together.

Beautiful, comfortable, miraculously SPOTLESS accomodations! Elaine and Ian were excellent hosts and eager to meet our every need. They gave us towels and a blanket for the beach, and Elaine packed a wonderful picnic lunch for our boat trip. My son fell in love with them and talked about them the entire trip. I recommend Landing Cottage to anyone planning a trip to KeriKeri.

We have just stayed at the Landing Cottage - our party consisted of my husband and myself, our two adult daughters and our granddaughter. We arrived late as we had driven up from Auckland, Elaine and Ian were there to greet us and welcome us to their B&B. The accommodation is fantastic, very comfortable beds, great big bathroom, large lounge area and a beautiful patio where we had our breakfast each day. Elaine does fabulous pancakes, Ian makes great soldiers and latte's! Elaine and Ian are great hosts, friendly but not obtrusive. I would highly recommend Landing Cottage to anyone who wants first class accommodation in a beautiful part of the world and a relaxing environment.

Wendy and Tony have created an immaculate, beautifully decorated and peaceful cottage in Kerikeri. It was the final stop in our 6 week trip to New Zealand and we so enjoyed our 3 nights there. Meals are beautifully presented and the hosts are most helpful with suggestions to make one's holiday very special.
We will return to stay at Landing Cottage should we return to NZ from Canada.
