Beautiful setting, lovely garden, wonderful view. Lyn & Chris are delightful, entertaining hosts who are fantastic chefs. Visit Akaroa & French Farm Winery to complete a great holiday in this spectacular part of New Zealand.

A chance finding on the internet took us to one of the highlights of our New Zealand and Australian tour, and certainly making our last night in NZ memorable. Our hosts, Chris and Lyn were not only charming and fun, but provided a relaxed and calm environment in which to wind down, after a long ride (don’t approach The Gables...

Stopped in here on our South Island trip and simply couldn’t get enough of Akaroa or of this fabulous little place and its welcoming hosts. Whatever you do, show up to breakfast with a good appetite – you won’t regret it! Well worth the short drive out from Christchurch – even if only for a look at the fine gardens!

We spent the last two days of our New Zealand holiday at the The Gables and it was wonderful. The house, garden and sea views were a delight, the food superb, and our hostesses lovely, warm, friendly people. We felt so relaxed and happy in this unique place. A truly memorable experience and one we hope to repeat in the...

We had planned to visit Akaroa on a weekend but found that The Gables had no room the day we wanted to go, so we changed our plans to come a bit earlier than planned so we could stay here. We were not disappointed! The welcome we received was like being welcomed by old friends, with all the stops pulled...

This B&B has our highest possible recommendation. The hosts, both chefs, are very good at what they do, the farm is beautiful and comfortable. The en suite bedroom is lovely and guests have a large sitting room with a fireplace all to themselves as well as several porches, and a huge acreage with many outdoor rooms for sitting. Quality, professionalism,...

We have stayed at the Gables a number of times over the past ten years. It is located in the Banks, Peninsula, a spectacularly beautiful part of the South Island. Lin and Chris are charming and attentive hosts. Their meals are exceptional and unique, with almost all the food grown on the premises. The guest room is somewhat small, but...

I found this B & B while looking for places to stay on the South Island. This Bed and Breakfast is tucked away across the bay from Akaroa. The ambiance of the house, the beautifully kept flower gardens, the organic vegetable garden and wonderfully landscaped grounds immediately won me over. The views of the bay and surrounding countryside are spectacular....

We just loved The Gables a delightful old country cottage set amongst a charming woodland and old -worldie garden. Lyn and Chris are warm and generous hosts with a passion for food and service. We had wonderful leisurely breakfasts and long interesting conversations about their home, garden and travels. Nothing was a bother and we felt relaxed and welcome to...
