This is really a 'home away from home', with Gay as a wonderful, gentle host. The Seaview Suite was well-equipped and clean, and the shower was heaven. Gay made us a wonderful breakfast, cooked to order, and was very helpful when suggesting places to stop on our tour of the Catlins. We were sorry we could only stay for one...

Jan, so sorry I have taken so long to reply to your wonderful review for which I thank you sincerely. It is so easy being happy with happy people, and having chats about your country was amazing. Yes the stay in Riverton is too short for just one night, but thankfully people are starting to realise we are a destination,...

Gay was very helpful with lots of information. She did make us feel special. The bed was overly comfortable. Breakfast was beautifully cooked with quite an extensive menu to select from. She does have an eye for detail.

It was such a joy to meet such a happy couple who are truly enjoying life together. It really was fun, and the complete time you were here was amazing. I am also sure your stop in Wanaka would have been great, to be with Ian's friends again. I do hope you make it back across the water to visit...

We honeymooned in New Zealand in February 2015. This B&B together with the delightful, kind lady who runs it was perfect. Gay is an absolute treasure. Full of warmth and conversation and our one night stay with her was a highlight of our 3 week trip. The room is spacious, the bed - one of the most comfortable that I...

Gay is just a bundle of energy to ensure we enjoyed our recent three day your stay. We had a wonderful time in the Sea View suite. There is more than ample room to be comfortable. And it is sparkling clean. The breakfast was generous from fresh fruits and cereals to a fully cooked delicious meal. She is a treasure....

You two were also amazing, and so lovely to have to stay with us. The world really is a small place. We can take someone from one Country and put them with another, and wow, it all matches!

This is a wonderful b& b, the best we have stayed in during our three months travelling throughout NZ. Gay is a caring, enthusiastic hostess, we felt like we had known her for years and we only stayed for one night. The bedroom was immaculate and the bed amazingly comfortable.
