Beaufort House Akaroa
Ranked #1 of 24 Akaroa B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 28 February 2014

Our every expectation was exceeded. Welcoming, thoughtful hosts who sought to ensure our every need was met, combined with a beautifully appointed and presented historic B and B set in charming gardens within the backdrop of scenic Akaroa - we are only sorry we could not stay longer than our two nights!

Two delighted Sydneysiders!

Stayed: February 2014, travelled as a couple

We had a vary warm welcome to this delightful house from Sharon and Noel.the house is beautifully furnished , large sitting and dining area, very comfortable room. Our only regret is that we could only stay one night. Akaroa is a beautiful town and Beaufort House is a very splendid place to stay.

We visited Bath briefly in 2012 and thought how picturesqueand steeped in history it was .... I bought a panama hat for my Father from the shop 'Highgrove' which sadly I see has now closed. We have fond memories of our visit and pleased that you have the same of Akaroa!

Our first impression as we entered Beaufort House was the special sign of welcome!!
Sharon and Noel made us feel like old friends from the start.House special,breakfasts gourmet, 6 PM wine gathering in the parlor or pretty patio with other guest so much fun.
Town is a charm. So glad we found you!!!

Fine house with very welcoming hosts in a great position in Akaroa. Great walks nearby, and the house has a wonderful garden to sit in if the weather is fine. An historic house of great character. Fine breakfasts.

Lovely heritage with fabulous owners who make you feel at home from the moment you arrive.
The room is perfect but it is the warm welcome and personal touch that make this place special and your stay better than anywhere else.
We were sad to leave after 1 night.

Room Tip: We had the room with separate bathroom, which was a nice big bathroom with everything you need.

Even the Akaroa rain could not dampen the pleasure of staying at this spectacular property, which must be a strong contender for the best B&B in New Zealand. The house is architecturally exquisite and the furnishings and antiques are sublime. Our room, with its lovely views, was a haven of peace, yet it was delightful to be woken at what would normally be an ungodly hour to the sound of rain on the roof and the most delicious birdsong chorale. Breakfast is an absolute joy, taken around a vast dining table with the opportunity to share experiences with other guests. Likewise, late afternoon drinks and canapés is a lovely touch. If Beaufort House is a candidate for best B&B then Noel must lead the pack for best host, not forgetting his grandson, Jack. One night was not enough. If you visit Akaroa, stay in Beaufort House

Room Tip: Our room overlooking the garden with distant views to the sea was gorgeous.

Thank you for your warm and pleasing review of Beaufort House!

Noel enjoyed your company and always ready for a 'sailing story or two to tell' if pressed
Jack enjoyed his time with his Grandad and started the new school year in Motueka, Tasman Bay ..he went back well versed in breakfast experience, apron on and was making 'French Toast and 'poked eggs' (Poached) for his Mummy :0

Charming room in tranquil setting. Beautiful balcony overlooking lovely orchard with a birdsong symphony filling the air. Noel and Sharon were congenial hosts that made you feel welcome and part of the family whilst staying in their beautiful home. Room was very comfortable and the attention to detail - exquisite! A short walking distance to all local sights.
