Our second trip to this marvellous location. We stayed for another 2 weeks, mainly fishing, with Diane and Barry. I run out of superlatives when describing our stay here. It was my 70th Birthday when we were there and Diane put on a great party for myself and my wife, with other guests joining in. Thanks a million Di. Meanwhile...

Stuart and Vicki it was an absolute pleasure. As soon as we heard you wanted to spend your "special birthday" back in Gore we decided the birthday would be our treat and we enjoyed hosting the evening and sharing it with you. We hope you make it back for another fishing trip as we would welcome you back anytime.

Gore was recommended for fishing by a winery owner we had visited near Christchurch, I checked out TripAdvisor as I always do, this one was rated #1, and we agree totally for a B&B and for guided fly fishing. I usually don't rate it if it already represents the way we felt, but my husband wanted me to add these...

We stayed at Wentworth Heights B&B in Gore for 1 night in February and it was just lovely. I have stayed there several times over the years (5 times since 2005) but it was a first for my girlfriend. We were allowed to drop off our luggage in the morning on the day of arrival which saved us from carrying...

Thanks so much Bert for your kind comments. It is always a pleasure to have you return to stay and this time was even more special as we got to meet your lovely girlfriend. You know the rivers around here as well as we do and it is great to always see you fish so well.

We just loved our night at Wentworth Heights. Diane and Barrie are the most lovely welcoming couple. Barry, a passionate fisherman, does guided days and people come from all over the world just for this. They have many repeats and we can see why. Everything is done perfectly. The rooms are comfortable and the view from the sitting room is...

Staying with Diane and Barry was a complete pleasure. Accommodations are first classs and you couldn't ask for greater hospitality. I visited Gore primarily to fish and Barry is an excellent guide that will put you on fish. I look forward to my next trip to NZ and another visit to Wentworth Heights.
