Excellent Bed and Breakfast, room was comfortable and very clean. There was a shared lounge and shared kitchen both were pleasant. B n B offered a continental or cooked breakfast which was of a high standard. Would stay again if in Whangarei.

This is an amazing place with lovely views and we had a spacious room. The hosts are very friendly. Even though all the rooms downstairs were booked, we still had our privacy and didn’t hear any of the neighbours. There are restaurants within walking distance.

This B & B is a very comfortable & clean room in a lovely house on a quiet street. So much nicer than being in a boxy motel room. A good view of the garden & surrounding countryside. It is a 10 minute walk to the harbor & good restaurants. The hosts (The Kells) make you feel very welcome & provide an excellent breakfast, either continental or a cooked one, together with good conversation if you are up for it. Guests have their own house access so are not imposing on the hosts privacy. I fully recommend it & would definitely stay there again if in Whangarei.

This is a beautiful little bed & breakfast in a peaceful & quiet cul de sac in Whangarei, with two very lovely hosts who provided a beautiful cooked breakfast! They also offered rides to pickup and drop off to the Whangarei airport which is so helpful, when you don’t have a car! The location is very scenic, overlooking the river and with very picturesque hills as a backdrop. It is also very convenient, being a short 12 minutes walk from the courthouse & several law firm offices on Bank street, which was ideal for the purpose of my trip. The rooms are very spacious and comfortable, each with their own bathroom, heating (important during winter!) and wifi access. Overall this was a very pleasant, comfortable stay - recommended if you appreciate the bed and breakfast experience and are looking for something a bit different to a hotel experience. I would gladly stay at Pentland House again!

We agree with everything everyone else has said and can only add that the photos are accurate - except they don't show the biscuits in the kitchen! Id managed to break a bone in my foot the day before and Roger sent me off with a lovely walking stick (which I am still using :( ) The commuter traffic was quite loud and started early so do bear this in mind if it might be a problem for you. The evening was lovely and quiet for sitting on the patio.

We used Pentland as our base while our yacht was being repaired in Whangerai, it was just perfect in every way. Roger and Bardy were perfect hosts, always available and a source of wonderful tips and information. Breakfasts were scrumptious, with home made preserved fruit from their garden. Location was everything, a 7 min walk to the town basin and the centre of town. Highly recommended...

This home is beautiful and extremely clean. The guest rooms are in the lower floor with private bathrooms plus a kitchen and washer to use as well as a common sitting room. The bed is comfy, shower is excellent, and view is lovely. It's a short walk to town and the waterfront. Breakfast was superb and filling. Highly recommended.
