We stayed 2 nights and were treated to the best of a B&B experience. From the meet and greet from Sarah to the sumptuous breakfast every thing was top notch. Our room was well appointed with en-suite. We were also well advised on local dining and our dolphin cruise. Off street parking was a bonus

We stayed for 2 nights to celebrate our friends special birthday. From the moment we arrived Sarah and the next day Sharon made our stay perfect. The rooms were lovely & the upstairs deck stunning for drinks before walking to town for dinner. Breakfast was great, cereals & lovely fruit especially the roasted tamarillo. Gardens were beautiful, would highly recomend Banks House.

Beautiful property and Sharon and Noel were very welcoming. The location is great, only a 5-10 minute walk from shops and restaurants. We had a balcony and partial view of the bay, which was lovely. The bathroom was completely modern and very clean. Breakfast was delicious with a great selection; the warm croissant was a real treat! Our names written on the chalkboard welcoming us was a fun touch The soft furnishings in the room were a little fussy for our liking however fitted perfectly with the age and style of the house. There was no apparent heating in the room itself and so it did get a little cold, but there was plenty of bedding to wrap up warm

Enjoyed a great room in a fabulous property with delightful balcony access in a very quiet location within easy walking distance of all that Akoroa has to offer both on land and at sea. Breakfast was an absolute joy. Iain Woods and Sherri Dewsbery
