Excellent B&B with very friendly hosts

Pros: Comfort, ambience, breakfast
Cons: We would check out prices in the area before returning. Obviously, if other similar hotels charge this rate, then we would return.
Very nice and comfortable room with excellent facilities and a lovely setting. Bernie was very helpful and accommodating and there was an excellent wholesome breakfast. We had a superior room (twin) but it was the most expensive (20% higher) of this type of accommodation during our 10 day visit to NZ for the same type of accommodation. Could just be Franz Josef pricing.
