Wentworth Heights Bed and Breakfast
Ranked #1 of 4 Gore B&B and Inns
Reviewed 12 March 2013

We spent several days fishing the rivers in the Gore area and found this to be an excellent base to operate from. The accomodations are excellent as were the breakfast meals. The Perkins were wonderful hosts and provided excellent advice on restaurants and other facilities in the area. Barry also provided us with good fishing information even though we didn't utilize his excellent guiding service on this trip. We would highly recommend the Wentworth Heights B & B to anyone planning a stay in Gore, even if they aren't fly fishers.

This is a great place! We stayed only one night but wished our plans allowed for a few more. Diane and Barry are wonderful hosts with Barry also being a fishing guide in Gore and surroundings.....the brown trout capital of the world. We met Jack another guest who is a multi time repeat visitor....an avid fisherman. They even named a breakfast after him! The place is very well cared for and quiet...a few minutes from downtown Gore. Barry and Diane are passionate about service....yours truly left his adapter in the wall. They phoned us and mailed it to our next destination. Stay here...you will not regret it.

Thankyou so much for your kind review. It was our pleasure to have you both to stay and we are pleased the adaptor made it to Te Anau before you left. People like yourselves make our job a pleasure.

This is an extremely comfortable, well run and well situated home, deserving more than 5 stars. Diane and Barry are the most relaxed and warm hearted welcoming hosts you could wish for. The rooms are spacious, the bathrooms impeccable, and the sumptuous breakfasts, cooked to order from a selection of local and home made ingredients, are the perfect start to a day on the river.
Everything is possible, and nothing was too much trouble:- outstanding!

Barry is an outstanding guide. No matter what your flyfishing skill, a day or two on the local rivers with Barry at the beginning of your trip is indispensable, as he will focus on presentation techniques and fly selection, maximising your chances.
Despite the large numbers of large fish in the Mataura and other rivers, they are not at all easy to catch. Barry's patience and knowledge ensured my subsequent week's flyfishing in the area was successful far beyond my expectations.

Chris you are a perfect example of some-one who does it right. 2 days guided fishing then nailed the Mataura River on your own for the rest of the week. Well done. Thanks so much for your kind words.

We tagged along with our friends to stay with Diane and Barry at their delightful home on the outskirts of Gore. We arrived as strangers, but left as friends, providing them with our contact details so that we can return their hospitality in the future. Their property is beautiful, in a delightful part of the South Island. The house was immaculate, and our bedroom and bathroom very comfortable and well set up with everything that we could need. We enjoyed the views of the town and surrounding countryside which were visible from all windows. The grazing cattle and sheep in the nearby paddocks added to the beautiful scenery. We are not fishing people, but we were impressed by Barry's stories and obvious professionalism and his preparedness to share his intimate knowledge of the streams around the district, and further afield. We also were impressed by the way that Diane was quick to provide information for other guests who were not into fishing, also providing details for dining options in Gore. Dinner was delicious, with salads made with home grown vegetables. Yummy! We slept very well (enjoying the opportunity to sleep with open windows) and appreciated the quiet, with the occasional comment from the animals outside. Breakfast was equally delicious, and substantial. Loved the homemade granola, and the freshly stewed fruits. We were sorry that we could only have the one night with Diane and Barry - I hope that we have the opportunity to return.

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!
