New owner Jackie is putting her personal stamp on the place already. Set in pretty surroundings, this place has all you need, with the added bonus of a home-cooking café that does breakfast for guests (and dinner on request) and is open to the public in season. So we had all we needed, including a pantry for tea and coffee...

What a great find this gem of a B & B was ... we fell upon it by chance as we were visiting the Kauri Museum next door. Our host, Jackie, was wonderful and was very hospitable and willing to go the "extra yard" immediately. She had only taken over ownership very recently, so some things weren't open yet. However,...

Stayed for one night after visiting the Kauri museum. Lyn and Alex were wonderful hosts and we felt rather guilty as they were shutting down for the end of season and stayed open one more night for just for us. We chilled out in the lounge area after a wonderful meal and while our little one got comfortable in her...

I stayed here on June 12, 2016 and had a very enjoyable evening. The rooms are nicely appointed with baths in every room. They offer dinner with advance notice of a couple of hours or more. They have a nice menu, I chose the rack of lamb and it was delicious. They have a full bar so a cocktail was...

We stayed here for one night after visiting the Kauri museum. Very comfortable and homely. Hosts were great. Breakfast was excellent. Our girls loved having their own room. We enjoyed chilling out in the lounge once they'd gone to bed.

I stopped off at the Matakohe House B&B on my way to the Bay of Islands. Fresh from a 2-1/2 hour drive from the airport after the long flight from the UK, I just wanted somewhere to eat, sleep and recover. The welcome from hosts Lyn and Ted was like coming home. The rooms are large, comfy and with beautiful...

Alex and Lyn are such warm and nice people and excellent hosts. They made us feel very welcome the moment we walked into the place. It was like going home to your parents place in the country. Great rooms, excellent home cooked meals, excellent company. The place is so quiet it is almost surreal. The port and chocolates in the...

Lovely large peaceful rooms with gorgeous views, and a decanter of port! The managers spare no effort to make guests comfortable and welcome. The rack of lamb at dinner and the quiches at lunch were excellent, as also the generous breakfast. The gardens are very pretty. The views of the brilliant night sky was spectacular!
