What a gem, we were greeted by Gaye so warmly like family, with the offer of a drink tea or a beer. Best nights sleep on our journey around New Zealand to date, and such a fantastic breakfast as well as an endless supply of homemade treats in the room. We are so glad we stayed here and Gaye is...

We spent 2 nights with Gay Maley in her lovely Riverton B and B. Nothing was too much trouble - the food healthy and plentiful and much was organic and local. We spent lots of time watching the many birds on her deck from the dining room as they fought over the sugar water. A memorable stay.
