A beautiful, quiet location. The view from our bedroom and terrace was wonderful. The room and facilities were first class. A beautiful warm swimming pool. We enjoyed a delicious cooked breakfast everyday and nothing was too much trouble for our hosts. We would love to return one day.

Set at an amazing location surrounded by scenic views. Hosts were kind and generous. It is a perfect place if you are looking to relax at a quite scenic place. Just a 10 minutes drive to city centre.Do not miss the stunning sunrise if you are staying there.

We are in NZ for a three week visit and after seeing the pictures of Swallows Ridge we had to visit the place. Absolutely stunning place and a lovely couple running the luxury B&B. You will not be disappointed, can't wait to visit again.

Chris and his wife are pleasant hosts, who make your stay as comfortable as possible. The location is awesome with a breathtaking view over the bay. The rooms are lovely designed and you have direct access to the garden and pool area. We spend there only a few days, which was really a pitty, because this was the best accomodation...
