Sue is a charming hostess of a wonderful property. Atholwood is beautifully located. Excellent and extensive gardens in all directions and from the main house wonderful views over the estuary. Breakfast very pleasant. Our issue lies with our agent who booked us the gatehouse not the main property. The gatehouse is a fine accommodation if you are a group or...

This was a perfect place to stay for us. Sarah and Ian were great hosts and we very much appreciated being upgraded to the apartment. The view from our window was lovely, the place was spotless and each day we were given a homemade cookie to come back to at the end of he day. It was good to chat...

We recently spent several nights at Atholwood - the perfect B&B! Sarah and Ian are wonderful hosts - genuine, warm, helpful people. Their breakfasts were delicious! We stayed in the Cowdrey suite which is a lovely apartment with a full kitchen. There is a small town about 5 minutes away so we were able to buy groceries and make some...

Lovely and warm rooms. Breakfast to order is no trouble. Looks like you are miles from anywhere but you aren't. That's the beauty of this place. Wonderful and friendly hosts that are very happy to guide you on close by places to see.

We had a delightful stay in this amazing B&B! We enjoyed the swimming pool and lounging in the well kept gardens. The hosts really cared about the accommodation and could not do enough for us or the other guests we met. Breakfast was cooked to order and delicious. Thanks for a great and memorable stay!

As a solo traveler, I am always searching for safe, comfortable lodging in picturesque locations with convenient access to scenic sights. Atholwood is just such an establishment. The proprietors, Sarah and Ian could not be more welcoming or helpful, the accommodation I had was luxurious and supplied with all the comforts of home and more, and the homemade afternoon treats...

Having a great time at Atholwood. Sarah and Ian are most friendliest hosts. Their accommodations are beautifully presented and are of a high standard. And the views are second to none, a nice glass of wine watching the tide roll back into shore.

Hats off to Sarah and Ian and a big thank you to them for making our stay in Mapua most memorable. After a 3+ hour drive from Punakaiki, we arrived at Atholwoods ready to unwind and could not have fdund a better spot than the deck directly off our room overlooking a large tidal pool off Tasman Bay with the...

We recently arrived at Atholwood to be met at the door by Sarah who graciously said we have been upgraded to the main house units (although all are great). Our first impression of the surroundings and building were their impeccable condition. Beautiful grounds/gardens and an immaculate interior. Rooms were very large and comfortable and we were given a personal description...
