Mixing with other guests over drinks was a fabulous opportunity to compare notes and to discuss the interesting parts of our lives in...

We were welcomed by Sharon and shown to our room upstairs which overlooked the lovely garden. The bedroom was stylish and there was a tray with fine bone china cups, tea and coffee to make, along with some delicious biscuits to enjoy. It was a short walk to Akaroa with its lovely shops and cafes. Sharon recommended a popular restaurant...

My wife and I spent three wonderful nights at Beaufort House, seeing in the New Year. The house and garden were exquisite. The central location meant that we could walk everywhere, without once needing to use our car. But the best part was the hospitality. Sitting outside in the garden in the evenings, enjoying wine and canapés with our hosts...

The Beaufort house is amazing. Sharon and Noel are simply fantastic hosts and the little extras that come with a B&B make it all worth it. Wine and snacks in the evening and then a full breakfast in the morning!! We got to know the others staying there during the meal which was great because everyone had more NZ experience...

The Beaufort House pinot noir is a winner, I recommend trying this if you are offered it at canapé time! There is off street parking and free...

We stayed at the Beaufort House in December, 2016 . It was perfect and the owners Sharon and Noel were great hosts. Set in a quiet location the gardens and house are beautiful and the property is within walking distance of the lake. The room and bed were tastefully decorated and very comfortable. Breakfast was delicious, and we loved the...

Outstanding hospitality, great comfort and superb breakfast justify the price. The setting of the beautiful house in a lovely garden close to the town centre is also a strength. For those who can afford it this is a great treat and, overall, very good value.

We spent a fabulous two days at a gorgeous mansion called The Beaufort House. The breakfast was divine with everything you could possibly want and the canapés and refreshments to start off the evening were spectacular. If ever you find yourself in the beautiful village of Akaroa we highly recommend this is the place to stay at. The bedrooms and...

We spent one wonderful night at this stunning bed and breakfast and would absolutely recommend it to anyone who appreciates the finer things in life. Our hostess has thought of everything from home made butter biscuits in your room with china tea service, fresh flowers by the bed and choice of wine and ordheurves before you head out for dinner....
