Couldn't have chosen a better place to stay - from welcome by Barry to comfort of room in beautiful house, huge breakfast to die for (didn't have to as it is included in tarriff), friendly chat with Barry and Roz (wonderful hosts) AND walking distance to town. Would definitely stay again if I can book early enough.

This was something special! We needed room for a family of six and the three rooms we booked were lovely. What we hadn't expected was the exceptional service that came with it. The Christmas breakfast was out of this world and very very special. Barry and Roz even gave us a packed hangi lunch to help is on our journey home. Truly wonderful people. We are coming back!

This place is absolutely great. The owners, Rose and Barry gave their very best to make my stay perfect and it was. The room was very pretty, clean, and nicely decorated. It had all I needed and more (e.g. snacks). As mentioned before by others - the breakfast it just amazing. It's big, yummy and will keep you going for the whole day. It was also the first place where I got proper black coffee (European style black coffee and not filter coffee). In the morning, Berry helped me to plan my day and had plenty of suggestions for the area. Barry and Rose even invited me for their Sundaydinner. The dinner was absolutely perfect. I really enjoyed my time and their place and felt very comfortable.
Thanks Rose and Barry again for everything. you guys are true hospitality-rockstars.

A Galaxy of Stars rating for this delightful b & b and its even more wonderful warm and gracious hosts Barry & Ros. Between pick up & drop offs, tips for things to see & do, Barry was a magician in the kitchen. Scrumptious breakfast perfect for a vegetarian 😍 & lasted all day! Was also invited for a delicious dinner one night. That potato salad. Such manaakitanga! The house is charming full of heritage, large comfortable bedrooms, had a soak in the bath, beautiful grounds & a short walk to the marina, the town centre, & unbelievable beach. I highly recommend this home away from home!

Stayed one night only out of two. It was a catalogue of extremely poor service starting when my wife asked for more hangers for clothes. The owner was extremely rude. We did not stay the second night as it was so bad, the en-suite is a caravan in the garden with very little space. The owners parting words to my wife and I were 'you are two obnoxious poms'. Fine if he thinks that but I would beware of staying at this establishment. It was fortunate our next stay was with friends in Napier in that I was able to contact them and arrange to go to their house the next day. The attitude of the owner totally ruined our stay in Gisborne
