Wentworth Heights Bed and Breakfast
Ranked #1 of 4 Gore B&B and Inns
Reviewed 29 March 2011

I have stayed in this Homestay B&B on 4 trips to New Zealand's South Island and honestly have never seen anything like it. It always starts with a very warm reception, a drink and some "fingerfood". The rooms (I have stayed in all 3) are immaculate, tastefully decorated and the bathroom facilities are excellent. There is broadband wireless internet available free of charge. And then there is the breakfast, cooked or continental, plenty of choice from yoghurt, cereal, fresh fruit, juices, toast, delicious homemade delicacies etc, just what you need to start a day filled with outdoor activities. I have visited Gore with the main purpose of flyfishing and Wentworth Heights B&B is superbly located for that; There is plenty of excellent water to fish, starting from the Mataura river bridge in town (5 minutes drive). One full season would hardly be enough to fish all the streams and rivers available within an hour's drive. From Gore day trips to Fiordland (Milford Sound) or Queenstown are possible.
But most important, Diane & Barry make you feel like part of the family!

Diane and Barry Perkins are some of the most enjoyable hosts you will ever meet. They exhibit all that is great about the Kiwis. You will feel like one of the family in no time. The accommodations could not be better. The rooms are clean and comfortable and the breakfast menu will keep you going until dinner. I've stayed at Wentworth twice now and would not even consider another facility in the Gore area.

Wentworth Heights is a great place for a fishing holiday in Gore, the self-proclaimed brown trout capital of the world. Clean, comfortable rooms, fine breakfast, and warm hospitality. Barry (owner) is a knowledgable fishing guide and former dairy farmer - he knows all the local farmers, enabling access to the best beats on the rivers.

Barry and Diane could not be more gracious or attentive hosts. The rooms are new and spotless. In all respects, an excellent B&B.
