Everything you've read is true; this is truly a 10 star experience! It's like having family in New Zealand, but I bet you'll never find this type of welcome from your family! There was warmth and thoughtfulness in every aspect of our stay and it's very apparent that Brian and Anthea have left nothing to chance. You'll be treated to...

I had the privilege of spending 5 days/nights at Bellbird Lodge and I must say each of them was a delight. Where to begin? The attention to detail, in every aspect of the stay, was incredible. In fact, many 5 star hotels could take a page out of Anthea and Brian's book! From an initial welcome (to the intrepid driver...

We stayed three nights in March 2016. As a former B&B owner, it is hard to wow me, but wow me they did. Anthea and Brian went out of their way, from the time of booking, until after we left, to make sure that our visit was everything we were hoping for. The place itself is beautiful and impeccably maintained,...

My wife and I spent a few weeks traveling all over the country around Christmas 2015, hiking, boating, and adventuring. Our last night was spent at Bellbird lodge. It was a truly perfect end to the trip. Watching the sunset from their porch with a glass of wine while the sun went down over Tasman bay will be a lifelong...

Very friendly host, a wonderful breakfast, snacks and wine before dinner. Comfortable rooms and a beautiful view. The perfect place to visit the Abel Tasman. If we ever come again to NZ, we hope we can stay here again. W'll recommend this accomodation to all our friends.

During our seven week trip to New Zealand we stayed in 13 different B&B's and Bellbird Lodge was the best by far, our only regret was that we only stayed for 3 nights. Our stay was perfect, perfect, perfect. Anthea & Brian were excellent hosts, their attention to detail was faultless. We stayed in the Magnolia Suite which had stunning...

We travel on cruise ships quite often, and usually the more stylish ones that have a well-deserved reputation for the excellence of their cuisine. We also eat out quite often in good West End restaurants, so we know what we're talking about when we say that the breakfasts and snacks that Anthea and Brian offer their guests is of stunningly...
