Ashfields Country Garden Bed and Breakfast
Ranked #2 of 11 Whakatane B&B and Inns
Reviewed October 30, 2012

My husband and I stayed at Ashfields 2 nights during our visit to Bay of Plenty and we had a wonderful time during our stay. It has a big plus from our part for all the privacy that is usually lacking other B&Bs. The room was lovely, as was the entire private unit that we had. We definitely recommend it.

My partner and I stayed at this incredible bed and breakfast run by Kate and Russ. After a long drive, the two of them stepped out into the cold to greet us, offer us wine and homemade chutneys, feed us, and show us around. We soon learned that their hospitality and generosity were matched only by their taste in decor; Ashfield's Country Garden is one of the most lovely locations we have ever stayed in. Our room was spacious and adjoined a wide living room that felt so familiar and homely. A crackling fireplace was ready for our arrival, and our room was doused in beautifully light aromas. The next morning, we toured the magnificent property, a landscaped garden and kiwi orchard that combined the full New Zealand experience with visual beauty in one fell swoop. Breakfast - a collection of baked goods of Kate's creation, warm coffee, and a delicious berry dish - got us perfectly ready to see the area. After a lovely stay with the hosts, who showed us the best outlooks of the nearby ocean and forced us to take delicious kiwis, we cannot overstate the pleasure of our time at Ashfield's.
Sidenote: For travelers having trouble deciding on one of the many great-looking locations in the Bay of Plenty, we suffered from the same problem and decided on Ashfield's on gut instinct. We can safely say, having come and gone, that it was the right decision and urge you to follow in our footsteps. Ashfield's is the real deal.

Ashfields Country Garden Bed and Breakfast is the best accommodation I have ever had the pleasure to stay with. The hosts Kate and Russ are fabulous people. Everything is provided from luxury his and hers robes, gardenia and rosemary soap, fresh flowers, a selection of homemade biscuits and cake to the 4 little chocolates in the bedroom. The accomodation itself is beautifully decorated in relaxing tones with your own full size lounge leading onto the large deck with steps down to the beautiful manicured gardens. The bid is very comfortable with beautiful linens and very comfy pillows. For anyone wanting a truly peaceful and relaxing holiday away this place is very rejuvenating. In the evening Kate invited us into her home to share a glass of wine and a chat. Lovely people. We will definately stay there again and would recommend Ashfields to anyone.
