Great views and the lodge itself was authentic to the area but it was on a steep hill so difficult re: parking. We didn't know how steep it was until we arrived so had to park on the local streets. It wasn't very clear as to where the office was - no signs etc to direct you. Didn't even know it was a B&B until we got there. A little confusing to be honest as to where do we go once inside the lodge. The host was friendly but needed support at breakfast time. Wouldn't go back again sorry.

An amazing b&b with the most gorgeous views in Mangawhai. Jeannette's breakfast was top end and she was so lovely and accomodating with local knowledge for me. I was staying up there for 2 nights to look at property in the area. Would happily send friends to stay with her, highly recommend. I added pics of sunrise, sunset and day time - beautiful.
