We stayed at Seafields in March 2016 after flying in to Auckland, for one night only. It was the perfect stopover for us, with a lovely room, very friendly and relaxing, just what we needed to refresh before starting our travels. We will be back!

We only stayed one night, after arriving at Auckland airport, and on our way further south the next day. But this B&B is really lovely. We had a Garden Studio, which is very spacious and has a wonderful bathroom. The grounds are also just beautiful. Stephanie was really helpful and advised us on a good pub for dinner.

Seafields is located in Whitford, New Zealand and right ON the coast, near a (small) boat harbor. It is a delightful venue with interesting and enjoyable daily tide flows.
