“Comfortable, affordable homestay”
Reviewed April 7, 2009

We were referred to the White Fox from another B&B in town. With only 1 bedroom (ensuite) for let, our stay was a wonderful immersion with the family! The bed was the most comfortable out of any I slept in in NZ, and the hostess so nice and welcoming. Quiet, clean, affordable, and a lovely stay. I will say, if you're not a fan of children, or want to keep to yourselves, this place may not be the right spot; you're one of the family as the kids are waking up, getting breakfast, etc.

From the moment Jane opened the door we felt welcome and part of the family. Jane and Gary are wonderful hosts with heaps of knowledge for the local area. They welcome you into their home and without any pressure you are welcome to join them and the family in thier lounge.
We arrived and it was pouring with rain and we had not wet weather clothes. In no time Jane had sorted us out with coats so we were able to go and explore. We were rather wet when we got back, but it was no problem and she even dried out our shoes.

The bedroom and en suite are immaculate and spacious with lovely touches. Breakfast is plentiful and you wake up to the wonderful smell of freshly baked bread.

We would highly recommend this B&B homestay.
