This B&B is located in a quiet side street but just a five minute walk will bring you to the beach side and a 10 minutes bus ride and you are downtown. There are lots of restaurants within easy walking distance as well.
Don was a wonderful host being extremely helpful with directions to go around and for the restaurants nearby always willing to help and gave a lot of helpful advice on our travel to the north.
Room: A nice room not too big but spotlessly clean (the green room) and a bath with all needed amenties and a large spatub which was wonderful after an 11 hour flight to Auckland.
A real large fruit platter, toast, eggs, to your linking, a choice of cereals and freshly made savoury muffins made for a wonderful start in the day. We had it in the library which is worth a look in itself.
Specials: There is of course the dog which really likes to be patted. We had free port, free chocolate, some wine, some cookies and cake so all in all we were more than happy on that day. We did only try the indian restaurant but can fully recommend that. Only 500m of walking and very reasonable prices for good inidan food.
