Positive Reviews

Great hosts

The guests who have chosen to stay here are blown away by the fantastic hospitality. They mention that the hosts do an excellent job creating a friendly and welcoming environment and are always on-hand to provide information and assistance. Guests really feel at home here and love spending time just chatting with the hosts and learning about the New Zealand way of life. Guests wouldn’t hesitate to return here at a later opportunity and would wholeheartedly recommend this B&B.

Delicious breakfasts

As part of their efforts to provide an exceptional experience, the hosts also offer a delicious complimentary breakfast every day. According to feedback, the food is lovingly prepared and consists of fresh eggs from hens in the back garden. There’s also home-baked bread and a selection of refreshing drinks. It’s a great way to start the day.

Good value, clean accommodation

Guests are happy to report that they find the accommodation very clean and also find the beds comfortable. Staying here also represents good value, which guests appreciate.

Negative Reviews

Quite a steep approach

The residence’s location on a hill results in the approach up the driveway being quite steep. This can present a problem for those guests with mobility issues or those who find driving up such roads challenging.

Rooms a bit small

Guests point out that they find the rooms a little on the small side. Not a significant problem by any means, but more an observation.
