The saying is save the best for last .. this was . we should of chosen this place for a couple of nights but we left it till last just before heading back home to Pukekohe , Auckland . The view , the friendship and homely feeling we got in this very spacious place . A great breakfast good advise of the local area . We had no complaints at all. 10 out 10
We did not take a swim in the heated pool but the surrounds and atmosphere would of just added to an already great stay. Once again Thanking you Mike and Chris for keeping a smile on our faces throughout the whole stay.
Graeme and Lisa

I have stayed during a business trip at this bed and breakfast and it was like coming home with the familiy in the evening. Mike and Chris were always ready to help me with any questions. Mike prepares a breakfast of high quality and was always around to help us.

Small problem occured with internet connection but Mike sorted it in few time, great service !

Everything is clean at any time of day, don't know how they do it but is just perfect.

Unfortunately I couldn't make use of the swimming pool because I had a lack of time, but garden and swimming pool look great !

My conclusion : when I go back to Kerikeri, no doubt I go back to Swallows Ridge !

We dont normally do B&B on our long haul trips and weve never stayed more than 1 night when weve used B&Bs in the UK. We stayed 2 nights at this stylish place and we should have stayed longer. It was in an ideal, peaceful location with great views. Because of the small number of guest rooms and the spacious award winning design it felt very exclusive. The rooms were of high quality with their own garden doors and private area overlooking the pool and that stunning view. Mike and Chris, the owners, have got it just right.

Room Tip: All good rooms

Mike and Chris welcomed us to their lovely home and were charming and informative hosts. Our room was large and had wonderful views also spotlessly clean! Breakfast was great.Sorry we didn't have time to spend longer here and would recommend highly. I hope our other B and B stays are as good.
