“Wentworth Heights B & B - Gore, NZ - Simply fantastic!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 February 2013

We met Diane and Barry whilst on a 15 day Trafalgar Tour of Spain in June 2011. Immediately we became friendly in a 'holiday' mode. They were wonderful company. Diane mentioned they had a B & B + Trout Fly fishing business in Gore NZ. From the time we spent on tour we knew they would be good operators.
Late in 2012 we and friends from Perth Aus. decided to take holiday in the southern part of N Z and when I contacted Diane & Barry they gave us expert advice and posted tour maps etc but above all 'demanded' we call and stay with them at Gore.
On our arrival at their B & B residence we could not have dreamed just how wonderful it was. Our experience at Wentworth Heights B & B was the most rewarding of our whole NZ trip. Their home which they share with patrons is magnificant and blends beautifully with the nature of both Diane & Barry. At dinner Barry 'magically' had our full attention with his detail of 'Fly Fishing' and local knowledge and fish styories, but the coup was brekkie the following morning (compliments to both Diane & Barry) fantastic...as the saying goes..'something to die for'.
Thanks Diane & Barry for your wonderful friendship, your wonderful presentation and supurb hospitality. We both look forward to a reciprocal visit to our beachside home near Coffs Harbour NSW.
Cheers
Doug & betty

We were looking for a fishing guide in Gore and came across this treasure! We were able to stay two nights and my husband had a wonderful day's fishing. Diane and Barry were both friendly and most gracious. The accommodation was very comfortable and the cleanest place we have ever stayed in...bar none. Breakfast was great. Nice cereals, bagels, muffins, toast. It was accompanied by home made jams and stewed fruits. Plenty to eat even without an offered cooked breakfast. Barry was a very pleasant and helpful guide and plenty of nice trout were caught and released on the famous Mataura River. Diane gave lots of pamphlets and information to help the non fisher. We recommend this place highly.

Room Tip: I am sure any of the guest rooms here would be most satisfactory.

Malcolm and I are brothers from Australia who have been searching for the best in accommodation and fly fishing. Diane and Barry serve up plenty of each and clearly understand the importance of providing for guests whatever their needs. Friendliness offered with breakfast that set up our day when we were taken to a mix of fishing spots where advice and many a fish were 'on the line'.

This stay will not be forgotten and I thank D and B for the memories and look forward to next year and the next trout rise!

This is our third stay with Barry and Diane and it just keeps getting better.This applies to the fishing and the hospitality. Everything they do is absolutely 6 star!
Thanks Diane for accommodating my dietary needs and for the absolutely delicious sandwiches. We'll be back!
Barry, despite the inclement weather I have never had so much success and fun with fly fishing. You, as always, pick the right spots for my level of expertise, and achieve your goals..a very satisfied and happy client.
Thank you for making this trip so memorable.
Cheers

From the moment we arrived, we felt welcome and valued. We received some light refreshments on arrival and also had a helpful, relaxed and interesting chat about the area around Gore, and New Zealand life more generally. The en-suite bedroom was furnished to a very high standard and included a plentiful supply of tea, coffee and cookies! Breakfast was extremely yummy and included some delicious home-made preserves and some light muffins to die for!

The wifi worked well. The house was immaculate. The hospitality was outstanding, and included the opportunity to use a downstairs room to watch DVDs etc. Diane and Barry even arranged a spectacular sunset to enhance our photo album!

If you are in the Gore area, this is definitely the place to stay.

Diane and Barry run an excellent B&B. Only 5 minutes drive from Gore town centre it is still quiet and peaceful. Rooms are spacious and each guest has their own bathroom. There is also a separate guest lounge although Diane and Barry treated us more as friends than paying guests. We were in Gore for the fishing, but Diane had lots of suggestions for things to see and do. We are looking forward to going back next trout season.

this little bit of paradise is made possible by the owners putting a lot of effort into making you very comfortable . rooms and breakfast and lounges all great. barry is also a superb guide providing all the fishing gear and knows and helps you catch (and release) brown trout, you wont be dissappointed.
