Bed & Breakfast Accommodation

Bed & Breakfasts in New Zealand run the gamut of size and style, from a boutique-hotel approach to the laid-back beach house. There are cosy townhouses in colonial suburbs and individual homesteads in wilderness areas, and the owners are as individual as the properties.

It’s fair to say that the majority of Bed and Breakfasts in New Zealand are closer to their American counterparts in terms of style and quality than British Bed and Breakfast accommodations, which may not be so well appointed. Some such as the Decks of Pahia in the Bay of Islands have private swimming pools, others are renowned for their seriously good breakfasts – take a bow, Teichlemann’s Bed and Breakfast located in Hokitika on the West Coast of South Island and you’ll also find some such as Kippilaw House in Picton that offer fine dining experiences.

What all Bed & Breakfasts have in common is a warm and friendly welcome and lots of local knowledge so you can really make the most of your stay in the area. A prime example would be Criffel Peak Bed and Breakfast in Wanaka where the hosts, Caroline and Suzie score very highly for their commitment to service and local guidance.

A New Zealand Bed and Breakfast stay really does offer truly personal experience and we highly recommend including a few such stops within your holiday itinerary.
