I stayed here for two nights. It was very quiet and the bed was very comfortable, just right for a good night's sleep. Breakfast was delicious with a great variety of homemade food which would put many hotels to shame! There were little treats to deal with an attack of the midnight munchies. Beautiful views of the river and sea!

My wife and I stayed a night on our way through to Dunedin. Gay is a natural host.

We spent 2 nights with Gay Maley in her lovely Riverton B and B. Nothing was too much trouble - the food healthy and plentiful and much was organic and local. We spent lots of time watching the many birds on her deck from the dining room as they fought over the sugar water. A memorable stay.
