loved this place, stayed a night before walking the Heaphy. I forgot a small backpack and Lis kindly lent me hers, she even had our (amazing) bfast ready at 6.45am. The food was so lovely we didnt need to eat till 3pm! We spent another night there after the Heaphy and fully enjoyed the luxury of our gorgeous room. Lis had a great selection of coffees, fruit, hand-dipped chocolate available and all included. Loved arriving to see Lis' mum doing the ironing, what a sweetheart she is. Thankyou Lis for sharing your slice of paradise. Karen and Jim

Thanks for taking the time to write a review. I enjoyed both your visits and was impressed with your Heaphy exploits ( and sore feet). Looking forward to hosting you next time you tramp in our area.

We stopped in for only one night but it was a much needed place to relax from travel. Lis & Chris made us feel welcomed and their beautiful gardens and rooms made it feel like home away from home. Lis's attention to detail was exceptional. Breakfast was overwhelmingly good with fresh berries from their garden to top it off. The only thing I missed was having bath soap and shampoo in the rooms but fortunately I had brought some with me. They also had great recommendations for things to do and places to eat in the area. A must stay for anyone!

As we sat outside enjoying an amazing breakfast, listening to the birdsong and envying the views of the garden, we wished we were staying longer. We had not even heard of the Cats Pjamas before we booked and were delighted in our "find". Lis and Chris were excellent hosts - friendly, helpful and going the extra mile to ensure our stay was both enjoyable and memorable. The rooms were spacious and tastefully decorated and we felt very relaxed and comfortable in Lis and Chris house - although it would be better described as a haven. We would definitely return and appreciate the extra effort that was made. Thank you both (and your mum too).

Me and my wife stayed in this magnificent B&B for four nights on our Honeymoon in New Zealand. The hosts, Lis and Chris were amazing they let us feel at Home away from home. the rooms are great with excellent atmosphere very clean and warm and the breakfast was amazing. without any doubt this is the best B&B we have stayed in on our honeymoon in New Zealand.

We were lucky enough to stay in this beautiful B&B. Fantastic Hosts who welcomed us in and gave us plenty of advice on local amenities . The room was spacious with beautiful decor and meticulously clean. The gardens and surroundings were very peaceful. Pool and gym looked amazing too! Hopefully will be back in warmer weather to enjoy the surrounding areas a bit more. The breakfast was delicious, and very well presented. Would highly recommend a stay at the cats pjamas :) Thanks again Lis and Chris.

We spent a fanastic two days at Cat's pajamas. Lis and her husband Chris went out of their way to make our stay a very memorable one. We stayed in the Max room - very spacious, comfortable and VERY clean.

You must try the pancakes - they are berry delicious! Our daughter also loved the bedtime nibbles (and the cat, Tia).

We had dinner at the Playhouse Cafe on our first night there - only a short walk/drive from the B&B, great value for money and excellent food.

Thanks for looking after us Lis and Chris - hopefully we will be back one day.

(Thanks also to our fellow tripadvisors for recommending such a great B&B)

Room Tip: The Max room is the biggest and has a pull out couch.

Thanks for taking the time to write a review for us. Thoroughly enjoyed your family staying with us. Just a little correction - Fred's room is the larger room that you stayed in with the private lounge and pull-out couch for children. Would love to see you back in our part of NZ some time! Warm regards, Lis
