Nibbles and a drink were very welcome after a lot of driving that day and we were invited to a drink before we went out as well. Made to feel very comfortable from the outset. Both rooms are...

Eric and Eleanor did such an amazing job of welcoming my partner and I. Shortly after inviting us into their home they took us out on their yacht with some of their friends, fed us finger-food and our choice of tea, coffee, beer or wine. The boat trip showed us the lake and canal system on which they live. Their...

We stayed one night at this B&B and the hospitality and welcome we recieved will certainly mean we return The hosts were fantastic and the quality of the accomodation superb. We were welcomed on the Friday night with a glass of wine and then an amazing breakfast on Saturday morning. The most friendly people you will ever meet. Highly recommended.

We had originally booked a night in Christchurch, but the earthquake changed our plans. At the last minute, we rang to see if a bed would be available at Lake Hood....

We stayed for two nights with Eric and Eleanor. They have a beautiful home. Our room was spacious and comfortable. We were made most welcome with a cup of tea and a visit when we arrived.
