“Best place I've stayed in NZ!”
Reviewed 12 July 2015 for a stay in July 2015
people found this review helpful

Peter and Lorraine are wonderful hosts, making guests feel like old friends as soon as they arrive. After a day of driving and sightseeing, we were welcomed and assisted to our rooms, shown all we needed to know about the place, then invited to a most enticing spread of local produce including wines, cheeses, freshly shucked oysters, locally produced smoked salmon and a variety of other delectable treats. Our evening repast was discussed and a recommendation made about the most suitable dining venue for the evening. Peter advised us to let the restaurant staff know when we wanted to return to Bellrock and he would come collect us. The rooms are fully equipt in case we decided to cook for ourselves, and everything was fresh and spacious. The place is just beautiful, with tasteful art collections, lovely gardens, exquisite but welcoming decor and even friendly well-behaved pets should we wish to indulge in some pet therapy. Lorraine showed she was much more than a great conversationalist at breakfast, which consisted of a wonderful spread of fresh local foods and offers to cook whatever took our fancy. Peter and Lorraine have a broad repertoire of conversation topics and were able to give advice not only about our stay in the Bay of Islands and its many attractions, but tips on visiting Africa. Perfect hosts in a beautiful location!

Dear Ann, thank you for this very welcome and great review. Our guests give us all the credit for our hospitality, but our guests themselves also have a huge part to play by accepting us, our pets and our home, thereby making it easy for us to respond and do all we can for them in return. In other words our guests set the tone that allows us to be ourselves, so thank you.
