“Excellent hostess, generous breakfast and comfortable room”
Reviewed 8 February 2016 for a stay in February 2016

We spent a long weekend at Whakatane and Ohope. B & B at the Lake is in a handy location for both. Didn't realise from description online it is not a separate unit, but part of the main house. However was still quiet, a reasonable size and contained all utilities needed. No shampoo or conditioner though, so take your own. Breakfast was very generous and included homemade spreads, fruit and cereals. Hostess Myra was friendly and accommodating. She also gave us great tips on trips and eateries. Thanks.

It was great meeting you both and trust your Whakatane experience was memorable. In response to your description of a unit; we have Area 1 and Area2 both are completely separate from the main house living quarters with guest entrances and courtyards independent of owners. I always stress if there is anything at all required we do i best to fill any need. Thank-you for your comments. Myra

“Luxury B&B”
Reviewed 10 January 2015 for a stay in January 2015

We stayed for one week and loved our stay in this spacious B&B. We had one bedroom and a huge lounge area, aswell as a nice terrace with lake view. The owners are very nice and provided us with everything what we need. Breakfast is excellent with homemade jam. Whakatane is great for boot trips and the nearby Opohe Beach (by car 10min) is just fantastic. There are nice lookouts in the area. Whakatane is also a great place to discover the Maori history.
