We were offered a very warm welcome and great hospitality by Jacquie and Murray Sutherland. Helm's Crag has spacious and well-designed bedrooms with excellent en-suite facilities, and nice open public areas with excellent views over the bay offered by the hilltop location. The breakfasts were exceptional. Highly recommended

We had the very good fortune to choose to stay with Murray and Jacquie at Helm Crag for the 2012 Art Deco Festival. Not only were they fantastic hosts but also gave us great tips for our stay in the rest of NZ. Looking forward to the 2013 festival! Judith and Andrew, Brunswick, Victoria, Australia
