We just had a one night stay with Rosemary and Ian in April (this is a very late review) and we wished we could have stayed longer - particularly to walk the track along the beach to the cafes. Such wonderful, friendly hosts with attention to detail in all aspects of their B&B. This is a new purpose built B&B... More

Very comfortable, good bedroom and bathroom, and lots of space in the common area, and a good kitchen and fireplace. Great view in the morning over the bay. Very helpful and friendly hosts! We brought back our takeaway fish & chips and bluff oysters for dinner after a long drive and found homemade chocolate slice and plunger coffee for afters!... More

This was our first night in New Zealand and it was certainly a good start to our 3-week trip. Not much to add to the good reviews already but we were very impressed by the modern architecture and views. We were pleasantly surprised at breakfast to find a Nespresso machine - the only one on our trip. Rosemary let us... More

A wonderful overnight stop in this B&B. Rose and Ian were very gracious hosts with a lovely new house with totally amazing sea views over Caroline Bay. The rooms are separate from the owners and have a lovely guest lounge and kitchenette with ample supplies of tea and coffee and the option to make a light snack. The lounge also... More

Rosemary and Ian provided us with excellent bedding, home made breakfasts and a lovely location overlooking the Bay. This year a DVD has been added to our room. We are still travelling in N.Z. and have Ian's golf bag to be dropped off on our way back. Just another little kindness, one of the many shown to us by these... More

We arrived at Pleasant view to a lovely NZ welcome from Rosemary. The first thing we saw as we went into the guests lounge was the large picture windows and the wonderful view of Caroline Bay. We were shown to our room which had equally good views of the bay. A large airy room with a kingsize bed, 2 bedside... More

My husband and I stayed here for our last night in New Zealand, it was an easy 2 hour drive to the Christchurch Airport the next morning. This place is lovely.

What a little gem we found here!! This is a house and you have the free run of bottom floor, with one king size ensuite bedroom and a queen size ensuite bedroom (overlooking the beach), a living room with a little kitchen, just lovely. Had the most perfect sleep, so peaceful and quiet. Ian (the host) made continental and full... More

Very well appointed and comfortable B&B for our last night in New Zealand. Great view of the sun rising over the sea! Rosemary and Ian were perfect hosts, and provided a very nice breakfast with home-made bread, jams and nutty cereals, amongst the usual bacon and eggs. Big common living area for 2 rooms gave it a family feel. Big... More

More expensive yes but the quality is infinitely better than nearly any other b&b I've ever stayed in. Top notch hotel feel but also like a home because it was cosy. The extra expense was totally offset by the cooked breakfast the next day. Fabulous.
