Just passing needed a bed picked Rakaia, found St Ita's B&B and knocked on the door. Lovely place, quite, clean, friendly hosts and a great breakfast. We had tea at the local pub, be sure to have the bangers & mash, wow. Overall a great place to stay, thankyou. Geoff & Maryrose, Port Macquarie Australia.
