We had a short visit but the owners were very helpful with suggestions for transport, dinner locations, calling cabs etc. It was a very friendly and relaxing atmosphere in a lovely old house with a beautiful garden.

Unfortunately, we were only able to stay one night, but the Lilac Rose was the perfect start to our New Zealand adventure! After over 24 hours of traveling, the attic room made for an amazing night of rest. The bathroom is down the hall (really, four steps away), but private and beautiful. Denis and Pam were awesome hosts - they...

This b and b is a must! Stunning rooms atmosphere, warm and welcoming 😊. Easily one of the best places I have ever stayed 😍 the lovely family who run the lilac rose were kind and helpful. Very welcoming. The lilac rose is a gem! Will definitely be going back if I go back to new Zealand.

Lilac Rose B&B was beautiful - the house is well appointed and our room was quiet and peaceful. Breakfast was awesome - Dennis' home made tomato sauce was a stand out. Wifi signal strong (something we haven't experienced at all places!) Would definitely stay again.

This was my second stay at lilac rose. Such a lovely place. We had three rooms all of which were charming, spotless and comfortable. The hosts went out of their way to accommodate us and make us feel welcome without being intrusive. This place is a real gem! I would happily go back again.

Parking is only in the public street. The owner welcomed us and brought us to the attic room. Positive: free wifi, nice look and feel, comfy bed. Can be improved: bathroom is across the hall, the owner assured us that the room next to the bathroom was only used for administration so a lot of privacy. But the full evening...

My husband and I stayed a night in the attic room and it was lovely. Dennis, our host, was informative about the local area and really laid back which made the stay very relaxing. The house and room are beautiful, as is the second living room which we had to ourselves for the evening. A great end to our New...

We only stayed for one night but could not have been made more welcome. The building itself is beautiful and surrounded by a well-tended garden. Our room was comfortable and far larger and better appointed than we expected. Pam, our host, was very welcoming and was there to cook a delicious breakfast in the morning. She was even kind enough...

We stayed at the Lilac Rose as a family (all adults) so we booked all the rooms and really had the beautiful house to ourselves. It felt as though we had dropped in to stay with friends for the night as Pam and Dennis were absolutely wonderful company! The rooms were cosy and very comfortable and breakfast was delicious.

Can not recommend a better place to stay in the world, fantastic hosts who took care of us from the the moment we arrived to the highest level until our departure.

“As long as you can negotiate stairs the attic room with adjoining bathroom and king-sized bed is ideal. The room has a delightful south-facing view over the surrounding gardens in this very attractive suburb with the hills in the distance. There's a refreshing breeze and it is very quiet.”
