We had planned to visit Akaroa on a weekend but found that The Gables had no room the day we wanted to go, so we changed our plans to come a bit earlier than planned so we could stay here. We were not disappointed! The welcome we received was like being welcomed by old friends, with all the stops pulled to make sure we were comfortable. The sole guest room is very comfortable, with a plush bed that I slept very soundly in, and the lounge is full of books for guests to peruse. And what a great puppy they have!
We chose to eat dinner at the inn, since their cuisine came highly rated, and we enjoyed the meal immensely, especially since Lyn and Chris joined us for the main course so that we could chat with them and get to them a bit better. The same prevailed over breakfast, which was among the best we had in our time in NZ--homemade preserves with our toast, a lovely frittata and homemade granola. What could be better?
