We spent three nights in the Garden Suite at Avalanche Bed and Breakfast, and it was probably our favorite bed and breakfast from our visit to New Zealand. The suite had everything we could possibly need - a comfortable bed, super clean bathroom, and a small dining/sitting area with a small fridge, microwave, and utensils. Trish and Davy were super...

Note: this is a summer review We stayed in the studio, which we highly recommend This is a simply lovely place. Just enough removed from the busy downtown without being too far- if you use the bikes they provide, it's a quick ride down the hill to the shoreline bike path and into town in 10 minutes.

We spent three nights here. And you won't find a place with better service than this one! Even a 5-star hotel is not comparable to this! You have EVERYTHING here you need. The hosts, Trish and Davy, are very thoughtful persons. They heated up the room before we came. They prepared the extremely yummy muffins and cookies daily and put...

We have just spent 4 nights enjoying Trish and Davy's wonderful hospitality as we attended a wedding at beautiful Rippon Hall next door. We were in the Garden suite and our friends were next door....the set up is excellent for groups. Everything has been thought of, and then some more...comfortable, immaculate, convenient, and then there is the yummy food provided!...

This was an awesome place to stay! The garden is beautiful and the people are sweet. The wife actually did our laundry for us. The room we stayed in was huge. It had a kitchen table and a buffet. The husband brought us on boat tour even though the weather was not great. I would definitely recommend staying here.
