I enjoyed a bed and breakfast with Brendan and Gail in July 2022. The evening was comfortable, friendly and at times hilarious as Gail told stories of growing up on a Canterbury farm which during WW2 became a military air base.
Welcoming and friendly hosts! Gail and Brendan are friendly and accommodating, as are the neighbours Liz and Jim who looked after us also during our stay. Breakfast and coffee is served to order and preference at a time to suit. The beds are comfortable and bedding is quality with a nice feel. We stayed in the fantail room however all rooms looked good and have their own bathroom attached. Stunning scenery from the property with panoramic views. Nice spa pool to relax in post hike! Great position, nice accommodation. Just a short 5-10 minutes walk down hill to Akaroa shops.
We are nearing the end of our 3 night stay at this beautiful Akaroa Bed and breakfast. Gail and Brendan are the consummate hosts. We have been made to feel so welcome in their beautiful home. It’s an architectural masterpiece and filled with wonderful collectables , many of them sourced in France. Decor throughout is to a very high standard. The bedrooms are beautiful and the beds so comfortable. Whenever we returned back to the house Gail greeted us with an offer of coffee, tea or wine. Brendan was an excellent tour guide giving us many ideas of places to visit. Last but not least are the most amazing breakfasts served on the terrace overlooking the harbour. The freshest of home grown ingredients used to make the most delicious food. This is a place that we have rarely come across in terms of a complete experience. We highly recommend staying here. …
Gail and Brendon who run Newton Heights are the most wonderful hosts you can imagine. We were absolutely blown away by their bespoke multi-million dollar architectualy designed home when walking in. This is style and luxury in big measures and then there is that view......
Can't say enough good things about our time spent at Newton Heights!! Amazing place! The house is outstanding! Wonderful hosts who made us feel special & well looked after. Not to mention the breakfast!!! Easy stroll down to the waterfront.
Wow what a terrific B&B - the accommodation and facilities were so modern, with super comfy bedding and the best views in Akaroa ! The highlight of our stay were the hosts Brendan and Gail - such lovely welcoming people. Enjoyed some long chats and they gave us some good travel tips. The breakfast was outstanding - Gail likes to fuss over you. Would highly recommend this accommodation to anyone thinking of travelling to Akaroa.
What a beautiful B&B, best view and fantastic location, just enough out of the town, but close enough to wander into town and around the beach. Our Hosts, Gail and Brendon where very welcoming and so much fun. We will return many times I am sure.
