What a fabulous B and B to arrive at after a day's cycling in the wind and rain. We were made to feel very welcome by Barbara and Rob plus the animals. Our bikes were safely stowed in the garage and we were shown around the house. Beautiful surroundings and splendid views. Our room and ensuite had views over the... More

Terrific B&B located above Havelock North. Barbara and Rob are gracious and welcoming hosts, making us feel at ease from the moment we arrived. The house is beautiful with well appointed rooms and en suites. The garden is lovely and the paintings by Barbara and Rob throughout the house are a real treat! You can relax in your room or...

We throughly enjoyed our 2 night stay at Barb and Rob's beautiful B&B. We could've easily stayed a week. First class hospitality, comfortable and spacious areas and great company (including the two cutest dogs Sarah and Jessica). Barbara makes the tastiest food and Rob will answer all of your wine questions - you'll not regret your stay here!

A beautiful little b&b in a very desirable residential area. Run by a very artistic couple who are shortly selling up but hopefully it will continue in the same vein. Really comfortable room with fantastic bathroom en suite. Breakfast wonderful whether on the scenic patio or inside on the beautiful carved table. A great base for exploring this lovely area....
