We were fortunate. As the only guests at the B&B that night, we were able to enjoy an excellent dinner prepared by our hostess Gay. As dog lovers we were pleased to be greeted by the resident Shelties - though they are only allowed to mingle with the approval of guests. We were just passing through so were not able...

Charming hostess, excellent accommodation and all-round facilities. Convenient to local pub fit meals and drinks. Right by the beach without being beach front, lots of great walks on the doorstep, lots of local history and a very well-informed and welcoming hostess. Well worth seeking out, you won't regret your choice. Definitely one for a repeat visit.

Absolutely bring nice things to eat - we have a guest kitchenette with toaster and microwave, masses of plates and platters, and a preparation area for making lunches, loads of lovely teas and coffees and we have a portable bbq we can bring out for you though you may need to bring your own charcoal.

Gay's B&B has the location and ambiance for a wonderful west coast stay. The home-made hot tub experience is a must do for couples. Although the area has a few options for meals, we were happy to take advantage of her package that included dinner and a generously packed lunch for our tramping up the Charming Creek trail.

Everything about this visit was excellent: the cosy and very clean rooms, the place, and of course the host Gay Sweeny. She provided me with many tips for my stay and onward journey and is generally a great source of knowledge. I can only recommend a stay at the Charming Creek Bed and Breakfast! Norman

Gay welcomed us in the parking lot. Her home is lovely. She gave us a great tip for dinner, which was only 4 minutes away. The room was big and spotlessly clean. The breakfast was delicious. We could hear the Tasman Sea roaring. Perfect.

This is a lovely little spot. So remote, quite a drive from the nearest town, but quiet and beautiful on a lovely, deserted beach. In fact most of the beaches on the South Island are lovely and deserted. Gay runs a nice little establishment. Quiet, simple, welcoming and lovely. The area is interesting to those who like industrial archaeology. There...

Our stay at Charming Creek was very pleasant. We were only there for 1 night but Gay made us very welcome and was a wealth of knowledge. Our room was spotless and the bed comfortable. The continental breakfast was very tasty with delicious coffee.
