we are travelling through New Zeland by campervan and we were a bit tired of sleeping on our not so comfortable bed every night, so we decided to do a one night at a b&b. ONE NIGHTS BECAME FOUR NIGHTS, so relaxed and lovely it was at Viviens place!
She really did take good care of us; she made us a perfect breakfast every morning with eggs, fresh fruit and all sorts of muesli and at night she cooked us a meal (extra charge). We know that it can be very different in other b&b's so we really appreciated her personal involvement. She even watched after our children one morning when her husband Peter took my husband out for a mountainbike ride in de woods (and I felt a bit sick and wanted to get some more sleep). The children really loved it at her place (she took out a lot of toys for them). Our oldest even went up with Vivian to her kitchen to help her prepare the food (and stayed there to watch television the whole morning ;-)
The rooms are very beautifully refurbished and you feel like you are staying in 5 star hotel...but the service is better though.
We would definitely come back if we had the chance and we do recommend this b&b to every New Zeland traveller. Dont miss it; its an attraction to itself. Oh and go running in the Redwoods in the morning! You will leave this place revived and recharged and with two friends in New Zeland.
