We booked with Shona and Brian for only one night and wish we could have stayed longer to get to know them better. So friendly and accommodating that we longed to spend more time at their beautiful home. The house is spectacular with beautiful views across the South Island countryside. Our room was spacious, well furnished and very comfortable. Shona's breakfast was a masterpiece and more than fortified us to continue our travel. Again, had we known of the beauty of the area, the interesting aspects of nearby Gore and the welcome that awaited us, we would have spent more time at this lovely place!

My husband and I had a wonderful stay with Brian and Shona. Their home is beautiful and we really got a feel for life in New Zealand. They were so very helpful with all our inquiries about the area and the country. Shona is a great cook! You must ask her to cook you dinner if you stay there. We felt like family in there home. We only wish we could have stayed longer. I hope we can visit again soon.

Brian & Shona McLennan have built a home that could be featured by any top magazine in the world. It is spectacular! It is spacious with several separate apartments within the home for guests. It is 5 STAR in every way!
We included dinner with our stay and Shona served us a magnificient evening meal. The homecooked breakfast featured many choices.
Gore seems to be a "secret" as we discovered the town, its amenities, and Hokonui Homestay to be beyond our expectations. We highly recommend this B&B to everyone!

The Hokonui Bed & Breakfast is a large modern home with privacy and very warm and friendly hosts Shona and Brian. The location is amazing as the property is on the edge of town with views across the valley. Our hosts went out of their way of help us enjoy every minute we spent in Gore. Brian spent hours taking us fly fishing as well as showing us his sheep dogs working. They also have horses so it was fun feeding them too. Shona made sure that by the time we ate breakfast, we would not be hungry for lunch! with lots of options to suit our dietary needs. They served us wine from their well stocked cellar and seem to really enjoy spending time with guests. We felt like family...
