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!
