“Hard to beat”
Reviewed 26 November 2012

If you are visiting Gore, stay here...you won't regret it. The rooms, service and breakfasts were what you'd expect of a quality B & B and Barry and Diane are friendly and accommodating. Gore itself has good dining and is in an excellent location to see the southern part of NZ. Oh, and the fishing is pretty good too!

Diane and Barry are wonderful hosts and their home is comfortable and welcoming. Barry was a knowledgeable and generous guide - a memorable day's fishing on the Mataura R. and 12 good-sized brown trout landed! Gore has great restaurants and I spent the day driving through lovely scenery to Invercargill, Bluff and Riverton while my husband fished. A perfect getaway for both of us!

Diane and Barry were very friendly making us feel welcome. They obviously take pride in their home which was very clean, warm and comfortable. Barry has a vast knowledge of the local trout holes and showed patience with me being the less expienced fisher person. Conditions were not very farourable but Barry managed to guide Warren in catching and releasing two trout. Diane's scrumptuous packed lunch warded off the cold and enabled us to contine for a full fabulous days' fishing. Lovelly couple and lovely location.

If you are thinking of visiting Gore or its surrounds this would be the ideal base. We were made to feel very welcome, and both Barry and Diane went out of their way to ensure that our stay was memorable. Unfortunately for us the fishing was washed out by heavy rains but it is our intention to return.

Awesome! Home away from home as Diane and Barry make you feel right at home and you learn so much about the beauty and wonderful people of New Zealand. The setting is scenic yet so close to so much. The home is very comfortable and much to offer. The host absolutely wonderful.

Made me feel like family and Barry took us to so many wonderful streams. He definitely knows the lay of the land or should I say streams! Diane made us feel at home and is a terrific cook. The accommodations were much better than thought. They exceed our expectations!

We stayed earlier this month with Diane and Barry. They were both so welcoming, we had a great visit and enjoyed the fly fishing tour we did with Barry. This was one of the highlights of our trip, an excellent time.
