The views from the our room and the front patios are fantastic. The food was delicious. Anthea and Brian are very welcoming hosts who love to interact with their guests. Our room was very nice, clean, and a great bathroom. Only reason not 5 stars as there is not an area to get away at besides our room. In warmer... More

My husband and I visited Bellbird Lodge in November 2016. Anthea and Brian have a beautiful home, that we were lucky enough to share for a short while, staying in the Magnolia room. Anthea and Brian tailor their service so that you feel extra special as a guest. They know their location well and the local people, offering recommendations for... More

Everything you've read is true; this is truly a 10 star experience! It's like having family in New Zealand, but I bet you'll never find this type of welcome from your family! There was warmth and thoughtfulness in every aspect of our stay and it's very apparent that Brian and Anthea have left nothing to chance. You'll be treated to... More

I had the privilege of spending 5 days/nights at Bellbird Lodge and I must say each of them was a delight. Where to begin? The attention to detail, in every aspect of the stay, was incredible. In fact, many 5 star hotels could take a page out of Anthea and Brian's book! From an initial welcome (to the intrepid driver... More

We stayed three nights in March 2016. As a former B&B owner, it is hard to wow me, but wow me they did. Anthea and Brian went out of their way, from the time of booking, until after we left, to make sure that our visit was everything we were hoping for. The place itself is beautiful and impeccably maintained,... More

Very friendly host, a wonderful breakfast, snacks and wine before dinner. Comfortable rooms and a beautiful view. The perfect place to visit the Abel Tasman. If we ever come again to NZ, we hope we can stay here again. W'll recommend this accomodation to all our friends.

During our seven week trip to New Zealand we stayed in 13 different B&B's and Bellbird Lodge was the best by far, our only regret was that we only stayed for 3 nights.
