We stayed in the 2 bedroom house at Bronte for 3 nights. Accommodation is spacious , comfortable with full kitchen, living room, dining room, 2 bathrooms, Laundry and sun decks. This is ideal for a family. Beautiful views. Breakfast could either be prepared for you by Michelle in the house or one could eat on the patio of the main...

I cannot decide. I loved our room. It was large, clean (well cobwebs on the patio furniture). Our view was stunning. The breakfast was perfectly ok for a B&B but certainly not what I was expecting from a country estate. It had a tennis court and swimming pool which we did not use. But still a very nice and upscale...

We stayed for 3 nights in one of the riverside suites and would definitely rate this as excellent. The suite was spotless and roomy and all of the staff were very friendly. The breakfast was really good and the staff even booked us dinner reservations in case we wanted them. Even though it rained constantly for two days the area...

Don't believe the ratings on this place. We thought this was a 5 star place and so disappointed. The place had a mold smell that would not go away and the owners just brushed it off. The washing machine was full of grime and the blinds don't offer any darkness. We could not wait to leave. On a positive note....

We do sorry you did not enjoy your stay at Bronte as much as our other guests do and have in the past. We took your concern on the smell in our villa very seriously and apologize that you personally felt as though the owners were blowing the situation off, that was absolutely unintended. Unfortunately after having had searched for...

Located in a complex of apple orchards and vineyards this elegant B&B is a great location to explore the surrounding country side. The suites are large and in detached units of 2 so privacy and quiet are great. The french doors open onto decks located a few steps from the tidal flats and are set among beautiful plantings

My husband and I stayed here for three nights and it was a welcome respite in the middle of our three-week New Zealand trip. We were greeted by Margaret and Bruce, who own the property, and followed them to our accommodations -- the Te Koi villa. This is a very roomy house with two bedrooms, a full kitchen and beautiful...

Our stay in Bronte Lodge had its ups and downs (mostly ups) and we stayed for 6 nights. Our Suite (Stafford Suite) was lovely, the views a delight, lots of daylight and spacious. The bathrooms were a little bit older although spacious (we were told by the manager they are being renovated later this year). The biggest let down for...

Thank you very much for your review. Our Villa bathrooms and bedrooms have now been beautifully renovated. The Stafford villa now has a new mattress. The bed type is called a super king/twin which means the mattress zips together so it can be made up as a super king or twin. Sadly the zipper had broken and we didn't realize....

This property is one of the best places I've ever stayed. It's somewhat different to the usual spots I enjoy but this was perfect. It's a bed and breakfast on a stunning property surrounded by spectacular views nestled in an orchard. We stayed in one of the suites overlooking the beach. There was champagne, wine and freshly picked fruit waiting...

We spent 3 nights at the Bronte Country Estate and completely enjoyed our stay.
