    Our group of 4 rode the Alps2ocean, we arrived on a ‘very wet day‘, all of us soaked through.
    The washing machine/dryer was available as was a garage for our e bikes.
    Lyn was amazing ,( and Frankie the dog) had the wood burner lit, made us all a cuppa with the homemade biscuits!!
    A lovely homely warm bedroom with everything we need.
    Breakfast both continental and cooked consisted of homemade jams, stewed fruits etc and this really goes beyond what we expected.
    Also the packed lunch consisted of home made Goodies.
    Would recommend staying here even for a weekend away as there is also great cafes just 300 metres away

    Lyn is a great host and her home is a perfect stop when cycling the Alps2Ocean. She couldn't do enough for us. The bedrooms are simple but very comfortable. The evening meal was hearty and the breakfast the ideal start to a long day's cycling.

    We arrived to a lovely welcome by Lyn and as we were the only one's staying that night we got treated to our own rooms rather than a twin room. We were made to feel instantly at home as we relaxed outdoors with a cup of tea and some homemade biscuits.

    We stayed here for one night as part of the Alps 2 Ocean bike ride.

    The rooms were well appointed and every touch had been thought of. Before breakfast we tackled Kurow Hill and we were ready for breakfast before we got back. Breakfast included cereal, toast and eggs. And Lyn prepared a delicious lunch to keep us going on our bike ride.

    I would definitely recommend Lyn's B&B if you are heading to Kurow.

    Lyn is a very welcoming host. Her home is lovely with lots of different spaces to choose from both inside and outside. Nothing was too much trouble and her breakfast was plentiful and delicious.

    I was in a cycle group and Lyn packed a lovely lunch for us all. She catered for a number of food allergies with ease.

    If I am back through this way I would absolutely stay again in a heartbeat

    This is a great BnB - with a lovely and welcoming host. Lyn goes out of her way to ensure guests are comfortable and prepared a delicious breakfast on both mornings we were there. While we don't generally stay within someone's house, preferring self contained accomodation, the host stays off site so the home is more or less open to guests to make themselves feel at home. We would definitely return when holidaying in that part of NZ again.
