This proved to be a great base for our stay and was ideal to our needs. Mike and Liz were friendly and helpful hosts throughout, their B&B being spotlessly clean and situated in a quiet residential area about 3kms from the the town centre. Great value for money.

My wife, daughter and I stayed here for two nights so that we could see a little of Northland and some of the inspiring places around. It was a good location for this and a pity we did not have longer to explore more. The accommodation was at one end of the house and was carefully thought through to give...

We stayed two nights at this B&B, which consists of just one room, and would have stayed longer if our itinerary had allowed! The accommodation consists of a bedroom, lounge and bathroom and is very private, with it's own entrance. The garden is charming and it was very restful to sit outside with a cup of tea listening to the...

We stayed recently here with Liz and Mike for two nights. It was a large spacious space set on a quiet street adjoining the main house surrounded by one of the most gorgeous gardens I have ever experienced. Liz and Mike were gracious hosts and everything was top notch. The "unit" is comprised of three large self contained rooms with...

We stayed 5 nights with Liz and Mike at Binnowee B&B whilst attending a Tree Crops Conference in Whangarei. They are superb hosts. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and are happy to recommend this accommodation. The garden location is peaceful and welcoming.

My mum, who is somewhat insanely hard to please, couldn't fault it. My dad loved it. I thought it very pretty, luxurious & cosy, and a better option than the random motels and hotels in the area.

Wish I could find a place like this in other towns but they are hard to find. This place really ticks all the boxes and will certainly see me back again next year.
