We “accidentally” found the B&B on the internet and booked it, without expecting too much. We got very positively surprised about everything! Barry and his wife are lovely and very warm hosts with plenty of recommendations. They tried everything to make our stay as pleasant and amazing as possible.
The freshly prepared breakfast was just outstanding and we couldn’t imagine a better place to stay in Gisborne.

Stayed for 2 nights and received massive breakfasts (also cereals, yoghurt, coffee/tea) every morning which can last you the whole day! Also received a t-shirt as souvenir. Barry is a warm host who likes to share his experiences with his guests. The house is clean and comfortable during my stay and is only 5min walk away from the city. Would definitely recommend this to others!

Stayed with a friend for 2 nights for a fishing trip. Barry greeted us with a beer on our arrival and made us feel at home immediately. The rooms are well appointed and the beds and linen of the highest quality. Breakfast was amazing both days with Barry out if bed at 5 so we could leave at 6. Day 2 Barry cooked us a beauty fish breakfast with some we had caught in a Caper and cream sauce. Awesome. I would highly recommend this BnB to all and will be back to stay anytime in Gisborne.
