“A truly outstanding place to stay”
Reviewed 26 February 2012

We recently had a seven week tour of New Zealand covering both islands. 'A Room With A View' in Whitianga was the first B&B we stayed in and we wondered then if we had peaked too soon, we were right! This is not an excellent B&B it is truly outstanding in every respect.

Jenny and Terri have carefully thought through what a guest might need and then covered all the requirements. The quality of cleanliness, space, decor and facilities are second to none, and the view from the deck is fantastic. The breakfast was also fantastic and beautifully presented.

The genuine warm and friendly welcome from Jenny & Terri was lovely and our only regret was that we didn't stay longer, which we will do on our next visit.

Of the 12 places we stayed around the islands, this was not just 'simply the best' it was 'outstandingly the best!'

Thanks both for your review - equally at one stage we would like to visit the Goathouse in the UK. It was great to share stories and information and that you had the time to spare with us over some wine on the "top deck". Cheers from us - Jenny & Terri.

My wife and I had planned our delayed honeymoon in New Zealand to include several nights in Whitianga during mid November 2011, but accommodation we had sought through another agency was not available. In looking for alternative accommodation we chanced upon "A room with a view" at 4 Miro Place. Although it is a compact motel-style setup located as a part of a private residence, it is absolutely perfect for couples seeking a degree of privacy and tranquillity. The facilities, which include a delightful continental breakfast, are excellent. We would hope to return again in 2012 perhaps for a week. As hideaways go, it is a real treasure.

Thanks for your comments Lea. Since you stayed we have opened up a second room (separate from the bedroom) which is a lounge/dining room. This suite is for the exclusive use of a couple or travelling party of 2-4 guests. It's still quiet - something we couldn't believe when we first moved here! Cheers, Jenny & Terri.

We stayed for a few nights and used the unit as a base for travelling. We were very comfortable and found the quality of the acommodation was certainly one of the best we have stayed in.

Room Tip: There is only one room, the view is excellent.

A hiddem gem, where you can hide away and watch the sea. We received a warm welcome which continued throughout the stay. Two lovely hosts who went out of their way to ensure we enjoyed our stay. They were more than happy to help with dining advice and places to visit, a friendly couple who are not overbearing.
The room was wonderfully clean and well equiped. Our favourite spot was the deck with the stunning view. Chairs, table and a BBQ made this a great spot to relax through the day and evening.
We felt very special with all the extra details, such as homemade museli, Linden leaves shampoo and conditioner and Yorkshire Teabags!
Hope to go back soon!

Room Tip: Good spot to travel out to hot water beach.
