Nah, we're not of royal bloodline, but we sure we're treated as if we were. Beautifully appointed accommodations. Clean-comfort-luxurious-views-vista-welcomed-knowledgeable-private are some of the words to describe. My college aged daughter was "blown away"..."mom, how do you find such great places to stay!" Homemade chocolate cake on arrival. Bed turned down each night. Homemade breakfast custom to our likes and our...

Brian and Anthea give their guests such a warm welcome you tend to forget you're a paying guest. They give help and advice along with their chatty stories and put such a lot in to their business whilst making it seem effortless. The breakfasts were amazing and varied with such beautiful presentation we had to photograph it before eating! Bellbird...

We stayed at Bellbird Lodge in February as part of a 3-week touring holiday of both islands. We found many parts of New Zealand stunning, and the Abel Tasman area is up there with best. Anthea and Brian were attentive hosts, keen not only to give us a comfortable stay but help us plan and even book local restaurants and...

Anthea and Brian are excellent hosts who run a top notch establishment and really look after their guests. The location is superb looking out over Tasman Bay to one side and over Takaka Hill to the other. Anthea and Brian helped us plan our visit to the Abel Tasman area so that we could maximise every moment of our time....

Anthea and Brian are fantastic hosts. They are so kind and so good storytellers, we would love to stay forever. And Anthea's blueberry pancakes are awesome. We felt as in family. The best place in Abel Tasman area!

The Bellbird Lodge was the best B&B we visited during our 3 weeks' visit to New Zealand. And perhaps all over the world because I cannot imagine than anybody is doing better than Anthea and Brian. The house is situated on a hill overlooking a fantastic scenery of blue sea and lots of green. The room is very confortable with...

We had a wonderful stay at Bellbird Lodge. The room was great and there was a lot of space elsewhere, a lounge to ourselves and the common lounge which led out to the terrace with a wonderful view of the bay. Apart from that the breakfast was overwhelming and in the evening we even had a wine tasting with a...

Anthea and Brian, the owners of Bellbird Lodge were wonderful, gracious, extremely helpful, and perfectly hospitable! They had lots of wonderful information about the area, including the Abel Tasman.
