“Relaxing!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 February 2012

What a wonderful place to stay. THe quality of this B&B has surpassed all others we have recently stayed in. My only moan was that we could not stay another night as they were already booked! If you are looking for a clean, neat, well run place with a fabulous breakfast then this is it.

Our stay at Moon Gate Villa was wonderful. The room was pure luxury, and the hosts friendly and helpful arranging dinner reservation. 'Candles', chocolate, and strawberries in the room when we returned were a thoughtful surprise. The cooked breakfast was generous and delicious. Heartily recommend Moon Gate Villa to anyone wanting a romantic night away.

We were only here for one night and wish we'd stayed longer.

We stayed in the summer house, was clean, well fitted out, most comfortable bed! Would definitely recommend.

Hosts were excellent, gave us restaurant advice and were v helpful.

Great value and included a lovely breakfast basket.

Room Tip: We liked the privacy of the summer house outside the main house.

We stayed in the cottage for 2 days. We loved it although the weather wasn't perfect. Great garden and even greater hosts. Lionel made us an excellent breakfast. In the evening we stayed in the lovely lounge where we could use the internet and enjoy the rare cat.
Kerikeri is a great starting point for exploring the north.

We spent the last couple of nights of our 6 week holiday in the Summer Cottage and could not have chosen better. Lionel & Rob are wonderful hosts and went out of their way to look after us, organising pedicures and massages! The deck on the Cottage was the perfect place for a bottle of wine while watching the bunnies procreate and enjoying the gardens.
