“Great people and a great place”
Reviewed 3 March 2014

We stayed with Barry and Diane on a recent business trip when attending the Southern Field Days at Waimumu. They were fantastic hosts - warm welcoming and friendly - great company.
The house was immaculate,very comfortable and in a beautiful setting. Diane's breakfasts were delicious and the perfect start to a long working day. Coming home was a treat and it was a real pleasure to chat with Barry and Diane at the end of the day.
I thoroughly recommend Wentworth Heights - you won't be disappointed!

We stayed at Wentworth Heights on a personal recommendation and found it every bit as good as we were told. The views are stunning, the room was comfortable, everything was immaculate and the food was first class.

Barry and Diane are wonderful hosts and their attention to detail shames quality hotels we have stayed at - for example, when we went to bed there was a jug of water with a couple of slices of lemon in it waiting on the bedside table, a refinement we haven't enjoyed anywhere else.

Was anything wrong with our stay? Only the fact that it wasn't nearly long enough!

Barry and Diane are delightful hosts to guests visiting their beautiful home .
The accommodation - en suite bedroom ,guest lounge - is of the highest standard, and the food Diane served used the best of local produce and was first rate .
For us the bonus came in the form of Barry and Diane's welcoming , relaxed style coupled to their comprehensive knowledge of the Gore area and activities.
Our particular interest was fly fishing and under Barry's skilful guidance we enjoyed a truly memorable day on the Mataura.
Excellent visit in every way .

Dianne & Barry were incrediable host, and their B&B home was awesome, (better that some 5Star hotels I've stayed at) & the food was sooooo good.

Overall experience was fantastic, great service, and I would highly recommend to my friends, family & travellers to stay at Wentworth Heights if they were ever around the Gore region.


Thank you Dianne & Barry, you guys are a wonderful people and we wish yous all the best!

Staying with Diane and Barry was a complete pleasure. Accommodations are first classs and you couldn't ask for greater hospitality. I visited Gore primarily to fish and Barry is an excellent guide that will put you on fish.
I look forward to my next trip to NZ and another visit to Wentworth Heights.

Dianne and Barry's bed and breakfast was a lovely treat for us as a family of four (with two daughters aged 13 and 16). We enjoyed the quality of the home and all the amenities provided were of the highest quality. (Better actually than any places we have stayed in and we've stayed in plenty of accommodation types). An extra special point of note is the breakfast - with lovely food choices available like home grown produce prepared and served.
Thank you Dianne and Barry, we loved the opportunity to talk and share travel experiences over breakfast with you, it was a wonderful start to the day and for us on our final leg of our journey.

Fantastic hospitality from Diane and Barry who were also most helpful in all respects with activities and trips. Very comfortable spotlessly clean accommodation including guest lounge with marvelous countryside views. A feast for breakfast. You must try Diane's avocado specialty. Particularly good if you are also fishing in the area.

Thank you so much. We loved having you stay with us and while Stephen was landing Brown Trout we were so impressed at how you made the most of your time to see Southland, including a day trip To Stewart Island. Hope you make it back to Gore again before too long.
