we spent 2 nights here and just loved it. So much bigger and better than we expected, plus delicious breakfasts. Kind, laid back hosts- we hardly saw them, but they took care of us, putting on the heater so we came back to warmth in the evening. Bed so very comfortable. Hope to go back one day.

This is a beautifully presented & very comfortable B&B. The attention to detail goes beyond the tasteful decor, there is a well appointed kitchen which includes a rice cooker, frypan, toaster, hotplates, microwave, fridge and a cupboard full of teas, coffee, cereals etc etc. There is a flat screen t/v, cd player and reading material full of local information.

This was a perfect set up for a B and B . It was separate from the house and self contained. We didn't have to have breakfast at a set time, it was supplied and we helped ourselves. This suited us well, because we had a few late starts. We stayed for 4 nights and we wish we had stayed... More

This is a well laid out studio apartment with contemporary décor and a fabulous view of the ocean. The weather was particularly bleak during our stay so did not use the lovely sundeck out front but found the lounge area very cosy. The dining table was beautifully laid out and all breakfast provisions supplied so we could take our time... More

Nice room and setting at Molyneux House. The room was comfortable, the view spectacular, and the host made sure we were well informed on local eats and sights. Breakfast was good. The local pub/restaurant does have limited food service hours, so make sure you call ahead / go early so that you can order food.

Enjoyed wine on the deck overlooking the bay. Perfect setting. Beautifully decorated suite. Great fun if you are a gardener as well. Walked the cove in the morning. Great shelling. Short hop to town and maybe ten minutes to Nugget Pt lighthouse parking.

Molyneux House with its luxury suite is a hidden gem in the Nugget Point/Catlins area. Joan and John Bisset are very gracious hosts and could not have done more to make our stay comfortable, meaningful, and memorable. They gave us helpful hints and restaurant recommendations. When we returned after dinner, we found soft lights, music, and a decanter of sherry... More

Joan and John were very gracious hosts. The room is large and lovely with glorious ocean views. It was cold while we were there and so we couldn't make the most of the large verandah but would love to come back in warmer weather to make full use of it. The only down side is the limited dining options close... More
