My husband and I tried to find a suitable B&B in Deconport and this was one of three that we visited. There was no signage and no indication that it still,operates as any form of guest accommodation. We hope,this post saves others from wasting their time driving around and trying to find out about possible options.

What can I say but wow. The B and B is a an old 2 storey house that has been completely renovated and brought back to its former glory, quite tastefully I might add with a modern touch.

We had the most wonderful stay at the Takarunga Lodge in December. The building is charming and the rooms are beautiful and incredibly comfortable with quality furnishings and tasteful, elegant decor (none of the overdecorated country nonsense that you often see at B&Bs). Devonport is charming, perfect for walking around with many bookshops, boutiques and excellent restaurants and a very...

I like to stay in boutique style accom. so when I was made aware of a new B&B opening in Devonport I was quietly excited. Its just on the outskirts of Devonport when your driving over from Auckland so not too far away from the city. The house is beautiful - its newly renovated and the interior style is impeccable....
