This really is a 5 star B&B. Great location on a hill top over looking Gore which is just five minutes away. The outlook over the green paddocks is special. The rooms are very well appointed and comfortable. The breakfast is terrific. And the hosts are wonderful people. Would definitely go back to stay again !

Lovely huge house a few kilometers out of Gore with great views over the country. Loved the cooked breakfast, the tea, the biscuits - pretty much everything! A couple cute little talkative lambs out the back were fun too.

Wonderful location, beautiful house, lovely room, and spectacular garden and views. A very rural landscape but within a few minutes of Gore. Very quiet with great but unobtrusive hosts. Excellent service and lovely food. We would love to visit again.

We were also given a lovely room with a beautiful view over the garden and hills. The following evening we realised we had left behind our sons beloved blanket that he has faithfully carried around for 4...

I booked my stay from I-site in Invercargill and had no idea what to expect. I got good map from there, so finding it was easy. What a lovely place! Breathtaking scenery, large modern room and peace and quiet. No road nearby to disturb. Slept like a baby.

4 of us recently stayed with Brian and Shona, it's a superbly relaxing home with great views and very helpful hosts even to the point of Brian giving helpful tips on new golf club websites. Should we ever pass this way again I'd stay at Hokonui without hesitation
