Barry and Ros were outstanding hosts. Barry's breakfasts were amazing - with fresh seafood both mornings, alongside a full cooked breakfast - we didn't need to eat again until dinner time! Barry went out of his way to recommend things for us to see and do, they took us out for dinner one night and Barry was going to take us snorkelling another day but the weather turned bad. It was also my birthday and they went out of their way to make it special and bought me a lovely bottle of wine. Thank you so much, we will be back!!

Surf City Lodge is really a special place, largely due to the incredibly welcoming owners, Barry and Ros. They made everything about our stay perfect. The house is gorgeous and the rooms are comfortable and welcoming. Barry is a fabulous cook who goes all out to make his guests welcome; his breakfast is legendary. He greeted us with cold beers when we arrived, told us all about the area, he and Ros joined us for dinner at a local favorite restaurant, and Barry even got up 5am to drive us to see the sunrise at the first place it occurs each day in the world. Kiwi hospitality at its best. I was disappointed we weren't staying for longer. I will definitely return to Surf City Lodge.

Kathy - Thank you for your review. We had a wonderful time with you Liz Tony and Julie and agree that it was too short a visit. We hope to see you again soon. All the best for Christmas and the New Year

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!

I've stayed at Surf City Lodge every time of been to Gisborne over the last six years. Barry & Roz are great hosts and Barry the chef primo. My stay this week again was the highlight of my working trip away. No hesitation at all in recommending Surf City Lodge as the place to stay in Gizzy!
