“What a Joy”
Reviewed 12 February 2013

What a joy to spend two nights here during our last week in New Zealand. The room, the view, the gardenand the wonderful country kitchen filled with history and Rosemary's charm were a highlight of our trip.

From the moment we arrived we knew our stay would be perfect. Rosemary is so friendly, helpful and knowledgeable about the area and was very willing to help us with any transport needs. The rooms are spacious & comfortable. The outlook over Akaroa harbour and surrounding area is beautiful. Rosemary serves a delicious breakfast which includes produce from her garden. Rosemary is the perfect hostess and makes you feel at home.

We stayed for two nights and absolutely loved our stay here. Rosemary instantly made us feel at home and welcome, and was a wealth of knowledge about the local area. Breakfast was simple but delicious including homemade goodies such as cooked rhubarb. Central location with only a 5-10 minute walk into town. Clean bright rooms which share a bathroom.

We have just stayed 2 nights at this b and b. Rosemary was a charming and lovely host full of ideas and info for us.
The bedrooms are well equipped and share bathroom fine for this reasonable price. Breakfast was simple and delicious and you can help yourself to tea coffee anytime. The verandah is a highlight for sipping a nice wine or a cuppa, with a stunning view and relaxed ambience. It's a lovely walk into the gorgeous town. We highly recommend this very well priced and homely b and b.

Room Tip: The first bedroom has 2 windows with fab views.

What a lovely experience to stay there. Rosemary was so friendly and helpful, such a lovely lady. Room was nice, and clean and a very comfortable bed. To see the sunrise in the morning from our bed was magnificient.
Good breakfast and only a 5 minute walk into town.
An old house, full of character, open wood fire, lovely garden, Lovely verandah to sit out and enjoy the warm sun, with a glass of wine or a cup of coffee, reading a book, just lovely.
We did have doubts about the shared bathroom, but we were the only guests so it did not matter. We found out that usually it is only one couple who stays or a family, so the shared bathroom is not a problem.
Will certainly stay there agian and recommend this place to all our friends and family.

I had the pleasure of staying with Rosemary at her B & B "Room with a View" for my last two nights in beautiful Akaroa. Her company is a delight and her accomodation is superb. Day and night a log fire warms the home and I slept in the most comfortable bed you could desire. The breakfast is amazing and offers a selection of fresh home grown fruits and interesting fresh healthy choices. Thank you Rosemary.

Room Tip: Either of the large colionel rooms is delightful with great views,

We stayed here for 1 night and if we knew, we had booked a night more.
Rosemary is such a lovely lady !!!
The room is large and the bed was perfect, we had a very good night sleep.
The breakfast was wonderfull, everything is put in pretty little pots and bowls. Rosemary does her very best to please you. But more than that she is a lady with a golden heart and therefore we can recommend this place to everyone that want to stay at Akaroa.
The house itselfs is one of the oldest houses in Akaroa and it is kept wonderful !
You have a magnificent view over the sea. The harbour is a 5 minute walk, so you can easily walk towards it. Rosemary, we hope to see you once again ! We will never forget you.
