Crestwood Bed & Breakfast
Ranked #1 of 11 Whakatane B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed April 20, 2013

My favourite B&B in all New Zealand, I even change itineraries if they have no availability. Janet and Peter are not only the perfect example for the legendary kiwi hospitality but also have become friends over the years.
Rooms are beautifully spacious and the lounge with the terrace and the lovely view onto Whale Island is one of the most scenic I have been to. Janet and Peter are most helpful with support to any adventure you might want to take in Whakatane be it a swim with the lovely common dolphins or a beautiful trip to White Island.
Thanks Janet and Peter for another wonderful stay! I will certainly be back.

Room Tip: Queen perfect for couple / single, twin perfect for friends travelling together

I came to Whakatane for a couple of days to take a trip out to White Island and although Janet and Peter could only put me up for one of the nights I was so pleased that I stayed there. The accommodation was first class with a balcony overlooking the town and a view to die for. A really tasty and filling breakfast to start the day and I felt that Janet and Peter really went out of their way to make me feel welcome and at home. Would definitely stay there again on my next visit to New Zealand and hopefully for longer.

We have stayed in homestays and B&B's around the world and have never stayed in a more beautiful and relaxing place. Our accommodations were spacious and private, the bed was large and comfortable, and the bathroom was roomy and full of natural light. We enjoyed the private balcony overlooking the beautiful flora and coastline.
Having traveled from the U.S. via Sydney, we arrived early in the evening and were warmly greeted by Jan who made us feel right at home. We later enjoyed tea, muffins and good conversation with Jan and Peter, which we consider the high light of our stay.
We are already making plans to return at our first opportunity and would highly recommend the Crestwood Homestay.

My husband, brother-in-law & I spent New Year's Eve at Crestwood Bed & Breakfast and it was a treat to have such wonderful hosts. Peter & Janet are super friendly, welcoming and helpful. We were made to feel at home the minute we stepped into the house. We got lots of information about Whakatane and places to eat. The bedrooms & bathroom were super clean. There is a good view from the patio. We enjoyed the welcome tea and delicious biscuits made by Janet. They sent us off with a hearty breakfast the next morning, the jams were so good. This was a memorable home away from home for us. Would highly recommend it.

Thoughly enjoyed our stay with Peter and Janet at their Crestwood B&B. We arrived late in the afternoon and were warmly welcomed with afternoon tea. After a lovely chat and a couple of suggestions on where to dine and what to see in Whakatane we drove the couple of minutes down the hill into town. Enjoyed our evening and returned to a wonderful nights sleep in our room. We had the whole top floor of their house with beautiful views down the valley out to Whale Island. A delicious breakfast in the morning and we were on our way, wish we could have stayed longer. I would not hesitate to recommend Crestwood to my friends - a very comfortable home away from home.
