Terrific hosts, delicious food and well appointed accommodation with magnificent views - what more can you want! We spent four nights at Carnival over the Christmas break and when we asked for suggestions about where to go for Christmas lunch/dinner, Martha advised that most places in the area were closed but if we liked Roly would be happy to cook...

Prime location, very good and well-equipped room, modern and spotlessly clean bathroom, very nice reception by hosts and excellent breakfast. No doubt the best of the 7 B%B's and 4 motels we experienced in NZ

Wonderful hosts. Very warm but also extremely professional. There was nothing that we requested that wasn't provided with grace and charm. Breakfast was very generous and varied. The location was close to beaches and facilities but in a rural setting with a sweeping views of Doubtless Bay. Most importantly it was very quiet and relaxing.

I wasn't expecting it to be bed and breakfast when I did the booking as it was a real quick one. But was really surprised with the service and amount of efforts put down by our hosts. The house was real warm and super clean and made it perfect for us! The breakfast was splendid and the views and serenity...

I don't believe that a B & B on Tripadvisor with more than a 100 reviews has a higher rating. Martha and Rolly are highly skilled in the art of hospitality and culinary delight. Your experience at Carneval Ocean View will leave you wondering, " how many more B & B's are out there like this." They didn't want me...

The fact that we and many others return year after year to Carneval is a testament to how excellent it is. If you are visiting for the first time, make sure you have a meal there. Roly is a superb chef. The rooms are great, the view is superb and the Swiss breakfast makes the perfect start to a day.
