A wonderful place to start

5 on March 04, 2016

We stayed at this B&B for our first two nights in New Zealand. Margaret and Graham were so accommodating in allowing us to check in early after a red eye 14 hour flight. Our room and our bathroom were lovely, comfortable, and clean with amazing views, garden doors and a deck. This home has the most delightful views, gardens, cat, birds, and sheep. We were the only guests and we were treated extremely well. Our hosts were invaluable in helping us decide what we really did and did not want to see, how long it would take us to drive to Fjordland, and the ins and outs of picking a caving experience. Whenever we came "home" they were excited to hear about our day. Graham fixed my reading glasses ... the glue held for three weeks! Breakfasts were sufficient with so many choices of jam. We did not come away hungry. The only downside of this accommodation was the lack of internet. While we found it quite difficult to not be able to inform our family we had arrived safely, this was a very minor inconvenience. When we left this little piece of heaven it felt like we were leaving home. It simply was the best. Stayed February 2016

3 Night stay in Te Kuiti at Simply the Best B & B

3.8 on February 09, 2014

We booked in at the above for 3 nights to explore the surrounding region (6/7/8 Feb 2014). Margaret and Graham looked after us very well and were a mine of information about where to go and what to see. Our room was comfortable and had good views from the deck outside, the breakfasts were also very good. The two restaurants that Margaret and Graham recommended were good value (Riverside Lodge in Te Kuiti and Huhu Cafe at Waitomo Caves, both of these only a few minutes from their B&B. The day we were leaving Margaret and Graham took us to see the new Timber Trail for Walkers and Cyclists (about 1 hour away from Te Kuiti) which was way beyond what you would expect from your Hosts so this topped off a great 4 days in the King Country. We would definitely stay again at Simply the Best when we next visit the area. Chris
