Helen runs the perfect establishment which is the best B&B we have ever stayed in (and we stay in a lot all over the world). The rooms are large and the beds comfortable, the guest lounge is great and she puts little homemade snacks in there for you. The whole house is immaculate and breakfast on the terrace with views...

We enjoyed our 2 night stay here and Helen was a very friendly and helpful host. When we arrived she asked what we were thinking of doing for dinner and when my husband said he fancied some chowder, before we'd even unpacked our cases from the boot of the car she'd got on the phone and found a restaurant which...

Thank you very much for taking the time to write a review. Im glad you enjoyed the seafood chowder and good to know I can recommend the Bach to others with confidence.

Helen is a welcoming and caring host, ready to "go the extra mile". She is a perfect hostess, friendly without being intrusive, however quick to anticipate guests needs. Our "Magnolia Room" was lovely & comfortable with an adjacent guest lounge that opened out onto a nice garden. We enjoyed her delicious home baking and breakfast. I would highly recommend this...

I stayed with my partner a few nights ago and it was a wonderful stay. Helen is very friendly and welcoming. She also has great knowledge of New Zealand, so I bet she'll be able to recommend lots of attractions if you're unsure what to do. We stayed in the Magnolia room. The room was great and there is even...

When stayed two nights here in the Rose room which was very comfortable and spotlessly clean. Helen is a great host and cooks a great breakfast with eggs from her own hens. The home made preserves are lovely as well. She goes a bit overboard with the Christmas decorations but that only adds to the charm of the place. The...

Our room was great, en suite quite spacious, bed very comfortable, location quiet yet only 5 mins from central shopping area. The guests' sitting room is well appointed with all you would expect. Great home baking. We were encouraged...
