Heading up to north to Kerikeri we were booked in to stay at Bed of Roses and we were quite impressed. We stayed in the French Cottage and it was cute, tidy and well maintained.

We had a perfect stay with Cliff and Louisa. Bed of Roses has beautiful gardens and gorgeous interiors. There is a relaxed feel but no shortage of service. An enchanting mix of NZ, France and England. Excellent breakfast too!

Just arrived a few hours ago from our Bay of Islands weekend getaway. The first thing my partner Carly said was her missing the room at Bed of Roses! Indeed, I was missing it myself, and everything else about it. I must say that this is the best accommodation we have had since we started travelling about 3 years ago,...

We just finished 3 nights at Bed of Roses. Hosts Cliff and Louisa really understand the art of hospitality. Lots of nice little touches in the room and breakfasts were scrumptious! Very quiet and peaceful. Comfortable bed. Lovely garden. Cliff and Louisa made excellent recommendations for dinner and suggestions on what to see. This was a wonderful and memorable experience....

Delightful stay with warm and caring hosts Cliff and Louisa. The touch of French influence made the accommodation enticing and the garden sitting with superb views added the extra touches. Well worth visiting.
