We enjoyed Sharon and Noel's hospitality for 3 nights. The house has all sorts of interesting features and is about as old as you get in NZ. The rooms are very comfortable and the hosts were delightful offering us a glass of wine each evening and the opportunity to socialise with other guests. Akaoroa itself is lovely. Highly recommended

Beaufort House was our first stop in a 5 week tour of NZ and it was ideal. After a long flight from UK and just a short distance from Christchurch, the tranquillity of Beaufort House set within a beautiful garden with private vineyard was just the place to recharge batteries ready for the grand tour! The room was very comfortable...

This review is a long time coming. We stayed at Beaufort House for one night back in September 2014. We drove from Christchurch to Akaroa. I had wanted to come back to Akaroa to do the Hector Dolphin Swim and this was the perfect opportunity to also stay in amazing accommodation. We absolutely loved our stay there!

A stunning place to stay, fantastic town, wonderfully personable hosts - they even put on wine & cheese every night with wine from their own vineyard! The free standing bath with champagne and a view over the vineyard was a winner!
