My wife and I spent a wonderful evening at Riverton Bed and Breakfast with Gay at her beautiful property. We arrived late in the evening and Gay welcomed is into her home like we were part of her family. She even made us a delicious dinner that evening. Her hospitality is second to none. I would highly recommend a stay...

John how lovely to hear from you, I have always wondered how your Doubtful Sound trip went, I am sure it was amazing, as all our trips in Fiordland are. It was so great to get to meet both of you after your long trip, and was so pleased it was a safe journey. Gosh it's almost time to come...

Have you ever visited a place where you just want to put on your slippers and stay forever. Gay's hospitality was the best that we have experienced for so long. Our room was extremely comfortable with special treats of home baking in the fridge to enjoy with a hot drink at the end of our day. A great selection available...

It was yet another amazing experience to have you both to stay again. It was so good that you came down to the south where hospitality abounds. This is because we always get the "best people here" to stay with us, and you two are no exception to the rule. The fun and laughter was amazing, and did all our...

Gay just makes this place a wonderful stopover. She gives a hearty welcome, second guesses every need, puts her guests at the top of her priorities and makes us feel as we have arrived home again! And her extremely comfortable home is a lovely spot with distant sea or river views. There are thick plush carpets, wonderfully sumptuous beds, and...

This is really a 'home away from home', with Gay as a wonderful, gentle host. The Seaview Suite was well-equipped and clean, and the shower was heaven. Gay made us a wonderful breakfast, cooked to order, and was very helpful when suggesting places to stop on our tour of the Catlins. We were sorry we could only stay for one...

Gay was very helpful with lots of information. She did make us feel special. The bed was overly comfortable. Breakfast was beautifully cooked with quite an extensive menu to select from. She does have an eye for detail.
