Stayed here in Nov 2011 only getting to writing review now. Duplex accommodation, clean, spacious and luxurious. Stayed at many places but nothing quite beats this place. Friendly reception and the view we had was striking. Definitely would recommend and we will be back.

I cannot praise this place enough. Strachan and family were wonderful hosts. Strachan helped my husband find the waves and was always ready to help. The sunset view from our upstairs bedroom was breathtaking, so the kids could watch the last rays at bed-time. We hope to return to Bow Street one day!

Room Tip: All rooms are adjacent with the same view.

Great outdoor private setting.

This is a wonderful place to stay - I felt relaxed as soon as I set foot in the apartment, with its wonderful view out to a garden from the lower floor, and the beach from the upper floor. Spacious comfy rooms, great setting, and lovely owners too. I'd highly recommend Bow Street!

I stayed in this accommodation on a business trip, but it was so enjoyable I would gladly go back for a holiday. The spacious studio apartments are immaculate, well equipped and thoughtfully decorated. Location is brilliant, too. Right next to some nice river walks. Despite being on the main street, which was convenient, it was well set back from the road itself and consequently quiet and peaceful. The apartments open onto a wonderful courtyard with river views. All of the staff were friendly and welcoming - it felt more like staying with friends! I would strongly recommend this accommodation and would definitely love to stay there again.

We recently stayed here for one night, the accommodation was gorgeous, nicer than some of the 5 star hotels we have stayed at in Auckland, very spacious and light and sunny. Would totally recommend! we will hopefully be back soon

Stayed only one night with my two daughters for a girls weekend away. Fantastic accommodation! Very clean, gorgeous view from the upstairs huge bedroom. The young lady who looked after us is a real asset. Very friendly and helpful, outstanding service, nothing was too much trouble. Great location, easy walk to restaurants, cafe and quaint township. Just wish we had been able to stay longer, will definitely return!
