“Two short stays”
Reviewed 1 April 2013

I stayed for two nights in January and one night in March. The hosts Lesley and Gordon are very hospitable and helpful. The accommodation was comfortable and spacious. The breakfast was delicious and prepared wheat free at my request. The B&B is situated in a convenient location for buses and a ferry that runs to Auckland City.

Just like being at home in this very comfortable B & B. Everything clean and crisp with an excellent hot or cold breakfast in the morning. The warm welcome from Lesley - she is the one who bakes the yummy tea cake for you to eat and Gordon who makes sure your WiFi is working are the extra special touches that make for a lasting impression. Handy to interesting spots on the northside of Auckland but also an easy ferry ride to downtown Auckland. Thanks for your hospitality!

Room Tip: Perfect place for 2 couples.

Beresford was perfect for our needs:
- quiet location;
- very kind hosts who received us even in the middle of the night and had a open ear for all our questions;
- not to near, not to far from the city;
- a gourmet-breakfast;
- all in all a perfect start to be on holidasy in New Zealand

We spent three nights with Lesley and Gordon in their delightful home on the north shore a mere 10 minute walk from the ferry to the Bayswater ferry terminal and a 12 minute trip across the harbour to central Auckland.

The Bayswater ferry is not as frequent as that from nearby Devonport but there was always the option of being dropped off in Devonport so we took the opportunity to be dropped here, explore this picturesque town before going across to the central ferry terminal. Returning we scheduled the Bayswater link so there was no need for a lift and didn't present a problem.

We were treated as long lost friends and even shared a meal and the 7's rugby final with them ... accompanied by a welcome beer or two.

The breakfasts were more than adequate - wholesome and a work of art whilst the bed boasted crisp cotton sheets and in the shower - big fluffy white towels.

In a way it was sad to leave such a welcoming atmosphere but rest assured we will call again when we come back to Auckland.

Well done and thanks Lesley and Gordon and remember you know where we live.

Room Tip: Research and book early. check the ferry times.
