Brantome Villa
Ranked #10 of 29 Whangarei B&B and Inns
Reviewed 15 October 2012

I originally scheduled my stay for 3 days but couldn't tear myself away so I signed up for another week. Valerie and Roger are not just wonderful hosts, they are real and lovely people, the kind I would like to have for best friends. Valerie is also a great cook and has a designer's eye. The rooms, kitchen and dining area are tastefully done and comfortable, and the beds are cozy. The property is located in the quiet country yet only 10 minutes from town. I enjoyed every day of my stay and hope to return. I cannot say enough good things about Brantome Villa.

Our stay at Brantome Villa was a gift from our wonderful friends so we got a great surprise when we arrived as we had not actually booked it ourselves. Beautiful surroundings, gorgeous decor and amenities and wonderful hosts. Roger even drove us into town for a night out we had planned. The suites were perfect for us as two couples we had our own space but set out so we could enjoy each others company too. The beds were very comfortable and the quiet surroundings allowed you the opportunity to have a good night sleep away from home. Will definitely be recommending to others.

We just enjoyed a two night stay, and very much enjoyed our weekend staying at Brantome Villa. Our suite was very well appointed, the hosts very very welcoming and made our stay in Whangarei a wonderful weekend.

Unfortunately we only had 1 night as it was a lovely setting, the rooms were excellent (loved the bed!) - they were so comfortable, clean and spacious. Both Valerie and Roger were great hosts, they certainly made you feel very welome. Food and wine excellent - thanks V & R. I would have no hesitation in recommending Brantome Villa - if it wasn't the vegetation, you would think you are in France!

Room Tip: They are all good. All rooms are separate from lounge area and all have fabulous bathrooms with ple...

Dear BrisbaniteKiwis,

Thank you for taking the time to write your lovely comments on TripAdvisor, we do appreciate it so much. Yes, what a shame it was only 1 night, check-out our specials maybe next time stay longer...
We are sure you would enjoy staying in any-one of the three suite's; all having their own bedroom, lounge & own entrance, the Lakeview Suite's are ideal for two couples as they have an interlocking internal door, then they can all use the one front door, otherwise the Lakeview Garden Suite & the Lakeview Suite do have their own separate entrance.
We look forward to seeing you again one day, Warmest regards Valerie & Roger

We stayed at Brantome for two wonderful nights. The rooms are spacious, comfortable, and fully equipped (including excellent bathroom facilities). The setting is beautiful, and it's very peaceful to sit on the deck looking down to the lake with a glass of wine. To top it all off, Roger and Valerie were excellent hosts, and catered for all of our needs. We will return!

Business or pleasure, what a beautiful place to stay. Outstanding company, extraordinarily first class absolutely impeccable service. Attention to detail in every aspect of this beyond first class B&B. I'll certainly stay their again given any opertunity. Miss this place and you have just missed an absolute jewel in the Northland area of the North Island of New Zealand.
