From our first encounter at this B'n'B we were sold. What a lovely couple Lizette & Wayne are so very welcoming, brilliant hosts and such a charming place to stay. The room itself was stylish and very clean. The communal area, where you could sit and relax make a drink/have a glass of wine and chat to the other guests...

Short summary: Warm, welcoming and helpful owners. Good and stable WiFi (which has not been a case in all the other hotels I've stayed at!) Solid and tasty breakfast. Comfortable beds and quiet neighborhood, so no noise during the night. Short walk to the beach. Good resturants nearby. Best place I've stayed in all of NZ!

Welcoming and friendly hosts and easy to find. We had the smallest of the three rooms with a very small bathroom. Spotlessly clean, comfortable bed and beautifully laundered bed linen and towels. Bath robes provided. There was absolutely nowhere to store anything. One small table at the bedside, nothing on the other. A chair in one corner and a coat...

The owners Wayne and Lizette were very helpful and friendly and nothing was too much trouble. The food was really good and the rooms were lovely and clean. The B&B is within walking distance to all the amenities and we had a wonderfull time there. The only problem was we didn't stay longer !!! Maybe next time.
