“Lovely place, lovely hostess”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 17, 2012

Peter and Jan have been so very kind and helpful. Chatting to me and excited as well about my R4 cycle ride. Were kind in every way, including alowing me to return for a hot shower after getting very wet over 90K. Clean, comfortable, and happy to accommodate my early rise to meet the bus at 0630. I will be booking again next year when I return to try and better my cycle time.

Thank you Denise for your kind review. It was nice meeting you and we were so pleased with your achievement for your very long cycle ride. It was good that you returned and give us an account of your experience. Good luck for your next race in Taupo.

Peter and Jan are very friendly and hospitable. Lovely position at the top of the hill - you do need a car (or taxi) to go out for dinner. Very clean and spacious accommodation on the top floor of their home. Best night's sleep in NZ! Jan and Peter provided a lovely breakfast and pleasant conversation.

Hi Sue, Thank you so much for your review we always enjoy feedback from guests and we enjoyed having you and Robert stay with us. It is a 20 minute scenic walk into town which many guests seem to enjoy especially in the summer time and for those who do not want to walk back we are very happy to go and pick them up. Enjoy the rest of your travels Sue, the countries you visit are very interesting.
Cheers
Janet

Jan and Peter are most generous hosts offering extra assistance well beyond the typical B&B service. They are warm and welcoming people, their neighbourhood attractive and quiet, the rooms spacious and comfortable, with great views reaching to the ocean.

I enjoyed my stay so much that when I revisited Whakatane I didn't consider staying anywhere else but Crestwood because the customer service there was exceptional.

If you want to stay in Whakatane & have some nice views this is the place for you. The rooms are excellent and very comfortable. What made the place special was our hostess Jan. What a lovely person to talk to! And when we couldn't find a taxi (there are none on Sundays in Whakatane!!!) Jan told us to jump in her car & drove us herself.

We booked this B & B via the internet and found a treasure! We can only agree with all the other comments - Janet and Peter are perfect hosts and the accommodation........The only downside for us was having to take the car into town for our evening meal as it was a long, hard trek uphill on our return so it meant one of us could only have one glass of wine. But everything else more than made up for it! Many thanks Janet and Peter, hope we can stay longer next time

Room Tip: Only 2 rooms which are only reserved together if you are a group of 4. Otherwise you have the master...

We booked 4 hotels, 2 motels and 7 B & B's on our trip and this was our favourite with wonderfully spacious accommodation (how many B&B's give you the whole floor to yourselves?), lots of extras and very reasonably priced. Peter and Janet were perfect hosts and the breakfast was really good. Sometimes when you choose accommodation which provides a view the access can be difficult but Crestwood has ample level parking space. Thoroughly recommended.
