We wanted to stop off somewhere on our journey from the Bay of Islands to the Coromandel Peninsula, and I'm so pleased we came across Millwood. The setting is idyllic, and although nearby Warkworth doesn't have much to it, we were able to find somewhere for dinner with some help from our lovely hosts. Melanie and Ian were extremely welcoming and gave us lots of helpful hints and tips for our trip - thank you! Our room was extremely comfortable, it had a great shower, and a lovely view across their beautiful garden. They also have a lovely big guest sitting room, which we didn't have time to make use of, but it looked very comfortable. Breakfast was on of the best we had over our 3 week trip. Melanie's homemade muesli and jams were delicious, and the cooked breakfast was very well made. Excellent value, highly recommend!

This is a very convenient b & b, situated just off the SH 1 (the road to the Bay of Islands), and only a few minutes drive from the restaurants so Warkworth. The house itself is very well appointed and set in beautiful gardens, surrounded by fields of cattle and sheep. The three rooms are very comfortable, and there is a charming sitting room for the convenience of guests, with tea and coffee making facilities, and delicious home-made biscuits. Breakfast is served by Melanie in this room, and there are eggs laid by Melanie's hens, and her home made preserves and muesli - all delicious! Apart from all the other facilities one would expect in the rooms, there is also air-conditioning - wonderful for the hot summer months. All in all, I would highly recommend this b&b to anyone heading north, and Ian and Melanie are delightful hosts.

Melenie and Ian were excellent hosts and very welcoming. Melenie makes all her own jams, muesli, and wonderful lemon shortbread biscuits which are available to help yourself along with tea, coffee and fruit. Breakfast offers a wonderful choice including cooked if you want it. The rooms were clean and spacious with doors onto the garden. The only downside is that the rooms get very hot and a fan would have been good. A convenient first stop as you are travelling from Auckland to the Bay of Islands.

We are happy to hear you enjoyed the homemade food and the gardens. Point taken about the rooms getting hot and we are looking at purchasing some fans for the next summer season. The humidity this summer was higher then normal.

I agree with the other excellent reviews. Great location, lovely people, superb breakfast, high quality accommodation. You can talk to the chickens. Can't think of a single negative point. Highly recommended.
