We stayed at 14 B&Bs during our recent tour of New Zealand and Bellbird Lodge was simply the best! Brian and Anthea are warm and generous hosts, their home is beautiful with lovely views towards the coast and the added extras made it a wonderful two day stay in Abel Tasman area.

We couldn't fault Anthea and Brian on their hospitality, thoughfulness and warmth of welcome to their home. Every detail had been considered - even flowers and chocolates on the bed at bedtime. The breakfasts are delicious and everything seems to be homemade to a very high standard. Evening drinks and tasty nibbles are provided about 6 o'clock which gives all their guests the opportunity of meeting one another. Nothing is too much trouble. They even chauffeured us to and from a local restaurant so that we could have a glass of wine with our meal. We wanted to walk in the Abel Tasman National Park and the Lodge is a perfect place from which to start. There are some lovely beaches close by too. So whether one is looking for an active or a leisurely break, we would certainly recommend Bellbird Lodge.

My friend Karen and myself were lucky enough to stay 2 nights at the wonderful Bellbird Lodge at the end of March 2012. The accomodation is truely beautiful and the attention to detail made our stay very special. Anthea and Brian are the most incredible hosts and wonderful people to spend time with. We particularly enjoyed the afternoon teas, complete with homemade cakes, and the pre-dinner drinks, again with delicious homemade savoury treats. Needless to say, the breakfasts were outstanding and will be missed! Both Brian and Andrea did a great job ferrying us to and from restaurants and water taxis, and made sure our stay was as relaxing as it could get! They were a mine of information and helped us make the most of this incredible location. I would recommend this first-class retreat to anyone.

Room Tip: The Magnolia Suite has wonderful sea-views and incredible sunrises.

We stayed at Bellbird Lodge for 4 nights in February 2012, where we met Martin & Sue. Everything Martin wrote about the place and about Anthea and Brian is true. The Bellbird Lodge was the best place we stayed in NZ. Anthea and Brian did everything to make it a perfect time for us. Of course we liked the excellent breakfasts, the afternoon tea, the home made cakes and the time before dinner with wine and nibbles. Our room, the Rosewood suite, was spacious, very clean and very quite. We felt like in paradise there.
