“Beautiful relaxing place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 January 2014 via mobile

We could stay only for one night, but certainly we can imagine a week long stay gazing at the lake, being looked after by the charming couple who own the b&b. We stayed at the Queen apartment, which was lovely, large, modern and sparkly clean. Breakfast was amazing too!! Really special place to stay if you are in the area.

Dear JitaW,

Thank you for taking the time to place a lovely review on TripAdvisor, it does mean a lot to Roger and myself to know you both enjoyed your stay here. As you say, even though it was just one night you could imagine enjoying a week here gazing at the lake & relaxing.
We hope you enjoyed the rest of your stay in New Zealand and had a safe trip home.

Kind regards
Valerie & Roger

We stayed at Brantome Villa as it was only a few short hours by road from Auckland on our way to Bay Of Islands for a holiday. The gardens are absolutely beautiful as were the rooms and the hospitality shown by Roger and Valerie. We felt right at home in the modern villa which they have decorated so tastefully combining old and new. Within minutes of arriving Roger made our coffee and Valerie was explaining local highlights. Our lounge room overlooked the lake as did the dining room where we were offered a variety of hot/cold breakfast choices. Not only was the bed comfortable , the pillows were wonderful!This is a luxury B&B for anyone wanting a bit of quiet time not too far from restaurants etc but with the feel of being away from it all. Loved our time there

Room Tip: This is a small B&B so if you are in the area best to book as early as possible to ensure you se...

Dear Del C,

Thank you so much for your lovely TripAdvisor review on us & Brantome Villa. Such kind words, they mean so much. Roger & I put our heart & soul into making our guests welcome & comfortable while they are here.
We are so glad you enjoyed your stay and maybe one day we will see you both again for a longer stay, especially as we are such a great base for Northland's tourist attractions.
You know that which ever suite you choose it will be as comfortable as the next, it will have it's own private lounge, separate bedroom with en-suite or bathroom, and of course a delicious breakfast to set you up for the day. Thanks so much!
Happy Christmas
Valerie & Roger

We booked this accommodation as a short stop-over for a trip up north. Great setting, wonderful room and facilities, and a lovely breakfast to set us off for the next day. Warm and friendly hosts that helped us plan the next stage of our trip. We would be very happy to go back should the opportunity arise. Highly recommended.

After a long, long journey from Atlanta, GA, we arrived at the peaceful Brantome Villa for our first night in New Zealand and were welcomed in the driveway by the owners, Valerie and Roger. They could not have been nicer and had our requested dinner and wine ready for us almost immediately although we were about an hour later than expected. The Villa is charming, spotless and extremely comfortable. Our suite was just what we needed after a long trip with a room to relax and unwind and a separate bedroom with a very comfortable bed and a squeaky clean bathroom. The icing on the cake was the cooked to order breakfast the next morning, on our timetable. Valerie and Roger are great "inn-keepers" and got us off to a wonderful start on a most memorable new Zealand vacation!

We had a short but wonderful stay at Brantome Villa - our suite was so comfortable and well-appointed and the bed was amazing.
We loved the warmth and care with which Valerie and Roger looked after us, and for me the highlight was the lovely cooked English breakfast!
We highly recommend this lovely luxury B&B.

The villa is exceptionally beautiful, surrounded by a magnific garden full of small animals and birds. It is lovely to sit on the veranda and just enjoy the house and garden.

The rooms are beautifully decorated and spotless clean (and cleaned every day). Everything is very spacious and well taken care of.

Breakfast is also 5* and served at your convenience by the very nice and engaged owners, who are very helpful in giving advice for daytrips etc.

Overall it is an absolutely luxury treat and very recommendable!

Dear Petsko,

Roger & I thank you so much for taking the time out of your very busy day to write a lovely TripAdvisor review.

We are so glad you enjoyed your 2 night stay here; with dinner both evenings at TopSail - just the best restaurant in Whangarei; we think! And you were able to visit the Bay of Island, swim with Dolphins and visit the Great Kauri Tree in the Waipoua Forest.

Next time, must sees are: Kiwi North with Museum, Heritage Park & Kiwi House, Whangarei Heads & Ocean Beach & the Tutukaka Coast & we're sure you will be able to fit in the 'Perfect Day' - 3 nights we think!

Hoping you had a very successful trip & safe journey home.

Kind regards
Valerie & Roger

We stayed here one night and loved the beautiful surroundings. We stopped at Ransom winery and picked up a bottle of wine then at So French in Warworth for goose pate, cheeses and French bread.

What a wonderful evening it was. Breakfast the next morning was glorious. Would definitely recommend.
