“All is not to be believed”
Reviewed 29 November 2012

So we have been traveling through NZ for 3 weeks staying in B+Bs. We are a good judge of good and bad.
This place....no heating....only takes cash (doesn't say on their web page...little suspicious).
Bed table light not working....because there was nothing to plug it into!
Sauna not working due to the earthquake...(either fix it or take it off the web site).... Oh and to add insult to injury....they wanted to charge me $20 for a bath!!!!!!!!!!!!
Very disappointed overall

Reviewed 21 November 2011

We stayed here on our last night in New Zealand as we had a 4am flight.

The accomodation was very grand and top class, and very cheap considering the standard. We stayed in the Pondside room, with its 3 walls of glass, one of which opens completely onto a private terrace open to the huge garden. We also had a huge wetroom bathroom with a massive jucuzzi bath. There was also an attatched private sauna!

The rooms and surroundings are impecably kept and the owner, Eric, was an amazing host. He had arranged for a friend of his to take us to the airport at 4am (airport transfer is usually free and done by Eric himself, but as this was in the middle of the night Eric asked that we give his friend $20). It turned out that his friend couldn't make it, so waiting in the carpark at 3:45am was Eric! When we got to the airport he didn't even ask for any money, though I gave him the $20 and our sincere thanks. He is a truly lovely man, who just aims to please.

I would recommend this B&B highly, it was a lovely end to our trip.

One of the best B&B stayes we have had the rooms are very good quality well looked after in fact everything is top class. A very large garden surround this magnificent house and it was so good to relax in these fantastic surroundings, the owners provide us with an excellent breakfast indeed everything we could wish for.
