the very first day we arrived we were made to feel welcome. Gill went
to endless trouble to cater for Ira's GF diet, and that was much
appreciated. Would certainly recommend Haven B&B"

an exhausting journey we were made to feel so at home and relaxed
during our stay with Gill and Paul. We really enjoyed all of Gill's
home cooked bread and cakes etc and the location was so peaceful.
and Paul did all they could.... and more to make us feel comfortable.
They even accompanied us to watch the England v Black Caps cricket
match (England won).
We would thoroughly recommend anyone
travelling to New Zealand to start their holiday with Gill and Paul.
Thanks once again for looking after us so well and all your kindness."
Roger and Linda Hill (UK) - Feb 2013
and Paul made me feel so welcome to their lovely home, after a long
jounery from the UK, with tea and delicious homemade cakes. My room and
bed were so comfortable. I started each day with Gill's fantastic
and fresh fruit. I loved my week stay with Gill and Paul and almost did
not want to leave to begin my travels around New Zealand, which
Gill patiently helped me start to organise. We had dinner one
evening of fish caught by Paul, served with a delicious Zucchini recipe of Gill's. Both Gill and Paul are wonderful hosts and I would highly recommend staying here."
Morag Coates (UK) - March 2012
you very much for the pleasant stay at your bed and breakfast! We felt
at home immediately, like visiting a family away from home. That's
exactly what we needed for a good start to make New Zealand our new
Judit & Christian (Austria) - Oct 2011
here for a Rugby World Cup weekend, which we enjoyed apart from
the result. (ENG v SCO) We were given a warm welcome on arrival and
made to feel very much at home. Facilities were excellent and our hosts
Gill and Paul went out of their way to help with maps and other travel
advice. Must mention Gill's skills in the kitchen especially the home
made jams. She was good enough to share her recipe for lemon curd which
we will be trying out when back in UK"
Gary & Brenda Steel (Yorkshire, UK) - Oct 2011
"Haven was well named as it was my first stop on my rugby odyssey in New
Zealand. A brilliant place to stay, quiet and peaceful. Gill and
Paul were a most welcoming and charming couple."
David O'Rorke (Newcastle, UK) - Sept 2011
for everything, Haven Homestay - felt like home from home. We were well looked
after with lovely clean and well presented bedroom and bathroom facilities’. We
also had a good choice of food at breakfast time and Gill’s home cooked meals
and baking were to die for. Oh, and I mustn’t leave out Paul’s specialty of smoked
snapper (freshly caught) – beautiful! We would like to recommend Haven Homestay
as a warm and friendly environment for both couple's and families’ and I am
sure Gill and Paul will do everything they can to make your stay as memorable
as ours. THANK YOU!"
