Guest Reviews

  • We recommend highly
    “We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. The room was spacious with a separate entry for the guest wing. The room was clean, well equipped and the bed was comfortable. The breakfast each morning was exceptional. We also enjoyed the evening wine and appetizers with the hosts, and so enjoyed getting to know them ... We recommend highly!!”

  • Superb Stay
    “What a superb time we had staying here on our recent holiday to North Island NZ. Rayma and Phil are simply the best, and after 3 days with them it felt more like staying with friends than at a B & B … Made our stay in Napier the highlight of our holiday.”

  • This is a first class Bed and Breakfast
    “This is a first class Bed and Breakfast. The room was excellent – clean, modern and comfortable with good facilities. Ian and Janet were very friendly and good company clearly enjoying the interaction with their guests. The Breakfast was lovely and served to us, unlike the “Do it yourself” breakfast we experienced elsewhere…”

  • Great B&B
    “Great B&B ideal for visiting vineyards and Napier. Of the 8 places my wife and I stayed at in New Zealand this was the best one in North Island. We were able to walk to the Mission and Church Road vineyards and it was an easy drive to Napier…”

  • Unique places
    A one night stay in the most unique of places. Travelling with my husband across New Zealand on our honeymoon what a pleasure it was to stay here. Arriving with our names written on the welcome board, was such a thoughtful touch. Staying with Donna and Chris was fantastic … The room we were given was exquisite, fresh and clean…”

  • A perfect B&B - wonderful hosts!!
    “A perfect B&B - wonderful hosts!! From the moment we arrived and were welcomed by Angie and Garth we knew we had found a true gem. Lovely location about 5-10 mins out of Taupo in beautiful countryside. Our suite was large and comfortable with everything we needed and opened onto the garden. A nice touch was home made cookies …”

  • The Accent is on High Style
    “The Accent is on High Style - Our stay here in Mapua was one of our favourite digs to date. That is not just because of the beautifully appointed accommodations or the tranquil setting, an acre-and a half of green in that quiet suburb of Nelson. Owners Sharon and John are not your garden variety innkeepers …”

  • Quality relaxation and truly lovely hosts
    “Quality relaxation and truly lovely hosts. Well, from the time of arrival we were in for multiple treats, superbly comfortable bed, charmingly greeted and good with advice about things to do … we were served a fabulous breakfast - a feast with superbly chosen fruits, good coffee and then HOT Cross buns. All eaten as sun as the sun shone through the window and bathed the vineyard below the house in golden sunlight.”

  • Haven away from home
    “Haven away from home. This is such a tranquil place to stay. I was here on a business trip and it was a relaxing haven to come home to in the evening. Amenities superb. Breakfast - delicious. Ann & Nick were wonderful, friendly hosts. I would love to come and stay again! I would recommend this B&B to anyone.”

  • lovely BnB
    “A lovely BnB with top-notch hosts Just what we needed. Our hosts, Gary and Glennys, were lovely and really made our three nights (not enough!) in Picton the best it could be. Their BnB is in a great location, the breakfast is filling, there's plenty of hot water and our room was comfortable. We'd stay again.”
