“Handy Eatery”
Reviewed 27 December 2013

Our usual stopping place for lunch as just the right distance between home and friends we regularly visit further north. Good range of cabinet food and hot and cold drinks. Service speedy and place and toilets kept clean even when very busy. Nice to have option of eating in or outside. Occasionally between seasons has been a wee bit on the chilly side but must be hard for staff to judge if weather going to be cold enough all day to put the fire on. Love the art work on display round the cafe walls.

Hi Christine, thank you for your feedback. We are glad you enjoy stopping in. Yes, the fire is a hard thing to get right, we have shared this with our staff so that everyone can be more vigilant over the coming change in seasons.

“Nice food, stopped twice on way to Motueka and on way back to Hanmer Springs”
Reviewed 25 December 2013

Nice spot to stop, good outdoor seating - non smoking provided! Chicken satay and quiche - both were good. Not too impressed with decaf coffee but ordinary good. Clean toilets and friendly staff - not all were experienced, but they were supported by others. Even when a bus group arrived service didn't seem slow, so we were well satisfied. Good parking availability.

Hi Stephanie, thank you for taking the time to provide your tripadvisor comments. We haven't had customer feedback on our decaf coffee before so I will be addressing this with our supplier in the new year, as great coffee is something that is important to us. We are glad everything else was to your satisfaction and look forward to seeing you next time you are passing.

“Good Food and Warm Cafe”
Reviewed 5 August 2013

We stopped here on the way home to Blenheim and were very impressed. We had eggs benedict with bacon and the steak sandwich. Both meals were a good size and the eggs benedict was a very generous portion with two muffins and lots of bacon. $40 for the two meals and a hot drink, the only moan I have is that we were charged $2 for a mug of hot water.
We sat right next to the woodburner which was warm enough and I noticed there was an open fire just around the corner too.
The restaurant was clean and modern (toilets also very good). I had very little to do with the staff as I didn't order the meal but they shouted a cheery goodbye when we left.
Would certainly recommend to others.

Thank you very much for taking the time to provide feedback. We appreciate your comments. Beechwoods has recently undergone new ownership and our focuses have been on the cleanliness and quality of coffee and food. We apologise for the hot water charge - this should be 50 cents. Please, next time you are passing make yourself known to owners as we would like to compensate you for this overcharge.
