Tucked quietly into the hillside overlooking Piha the views from this B&B are stunning and the hosts, super friendly. Give or take a few steps to get down to the downstairs suite it's well worth it. The lounge is huge and the private deck with hot tub is the perfect way to bubble away any aches under the stars! Breakfast...

Me and my fiancee spent three nights in the Manuka Suite at the Lyons Rock BnB. The room was more than worth it's price and the views are simply amazing! The hosts are very warm and welcoming and they provided us with lots of advice about things to see and do. When visiting Piha, this BnB is the perfect accomodation!...

We stayed at Lion’s Rock B&B for the first two nights of our trip to New Zealand and were so pleased we had booked ‘The Cottage’ as we needed to unpack and repack our cases and the car. The Cottage is at the same level as the car parking but the house itself, where the other B&B rooms are, is...

You know you've picked a place with an amazing view when you see all the cars parked on the road with tourists taking pictures over the house out to the water. My wife and I and our 4 year old stayed in the Manuka Suite and it was a perfect space for us. We liked it so much that we...

The view of Lion Rock and Piha Beach is, of course, amazing. But the lovely surprise was Liz & Malcom's stunning house designed in tiers to make the most of it. We had a superb room and patio to make the most of it. Breakfast's were delicious and we were given lots of good suggestions for walks, etc. There is...

The B&B is perched on the edge of a cliff, overlooking scenic Piha. The hosts were very friendly and the breakfast was substantial You have to drive to Piha to eat, and the driveway down to the house is vertiginous - not for the faint-hearted!
