We stayed for one night at Alfresco B&B and were met by host Neil with afternoon tea - home baked tart and tea or coffee. Our room was very comfortable with lovely linen and garden roses by the bedside. We then joined Neil and Sue for nibbles and drinks in the lounge prior to dinner. We had arranged for Neil...

My husband, my dad and I spent three nights in the very best B&B that we've been so far (and we've seen many!)...it was an absolutely amazing experience! We had both rooms, which were comfortable, cozy and clean! We enjoyed a perfectly cooked and continental breakfast in the morning, got our laundry done, had some sweet treats in our room...

We stayed here for 4 days R&R during our trip and also to visit White Island. We cannot praise Neil and Sue's hospitality enough - from daily port and chocolates in our room to the delicious food and even filling our kettle for us every day so that we could make our own tea! Nothing was too much trouble and...

Neil and Sue make a great team and have obviously worked very hard to establish their b&b at the top end of the market. They seem to have achieved this by their attention to detail in every aspect of the provision they have made for guests. A great welcome, the extras such as the wonderful baking, and the decanter of...

Neil and Sue are warm and gracious hosts in their two room B and B. Our room was very comfortable with tea, coffee, freshly baked tarts, port, and chocolates. A well stocked mini-fridge had wines and beer for purchase, which we found to be very thoughtful. They readily offered to drive us to and from restaurants and shared their favorite...

We had a 1 night stay occupying both of the gorgeous en-suite bedrooms that Neil and Sue have to offer their guests. Our arrival was greeted by home baked 'afternoon tea' and a friendly welcome from our hosts. After a chat and glass or two of wine on the patio, we were offered an evening meal of freshly caught fish...
