Another 5-star review for Te Puna Wai Lodge! This excellent B&B is set in a beautifully restored Victorian home on a hill overlooking Tasman Bay. The rooms are spotless, comfortable, quiet, and furnished with antiques. We had the ground floor to ourselves, which consisted of a large suite with a full kitchen and a smaller bedroom with a refrigerator. The suite has a balcony overlooking the bay.
Richard and James are excellent hosts, friendly and helpful with local advice. The breakfast included cold cereals, fresh fruit and yogurt, fresh orange juice, coffee or tea. We were also offered eggs with bacon and toast. The Boat Shed restaurant is excellent and within walking distance. In sum, this was probably the best place we stayed on our trip through New Zealand, and all at a very reasonable price. My only regret is that we were passing through and couldn't stay longer.
