“This is luxury with a twist of cute”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 October 2011

This exquisite B and B has taken my breath away, lovely owners, great food and my oh my... the bed! I don't think I have ever slept as well as I did that night since I was in nappies.
Annie's B and B is a short distance from Warkworth and is close to shops and restaurants.
In the morning breakfast was brought to us with a smile and to my satisfaction it tasted like restaurant food "thanks Peter" all n all I have not one bad thing to say about our stay...it even had SKY TV :)

Room Tip: try and book the Cottage

Both feeling work weary we were hoping for a restful weekend getaway and chose Annies based on other reviews on this site. We were not disappointed, especially when given an unexpected upgrade to the Cottage. Very comfortable, interesting, and private. Our hosts cooked great breakfasts and showed just the right amount of attention without intruding. We'll be back!

A perfect choice for a stay in the Matakana/Warkworth area being just 2 minutes drive north of Warkworth opposite the Cider Shed Cafe where we enjoyed a wonderful dinner.

Both the cottage and the suite are gorgeous and fully self-contained with charming decor, cute nick-nacks everywhere, luxurious beds and private decks where you can enjoy a drink surrounded by plants and arts 'n crafts.

Breakfast is whatever you like at whatever time you choose so we had a delicious cooked breaky delivered by Peter at 9am along with toast/jams and frothy lattes - it was so nice to just be able to relax and eat in the privacy of our own room.

The hosts, Annie and Peter, are very friendly and flexible too with check in/out times depending on their other bookings. They are not obtrusive but helpful if needed so you can just unwind and enjoy it all.

Would we go back? Well, we already have, with our son and his girlfriend, and they found it just as delightful as we did.

Room Tip: Although both are gorgeous, the cottage is a bit more private

We stayed 3 nights in the Cottage - which comes with an amazing collection of weaving from the islands - inc hats, fans, and baskets.

Very private accommodation with a private deck that has a fantastic 3D picture, and over looks the gardens - where they have a number of interesting 'Bits and Pieces' in odd corners.

Came with a fantastically comfortable Queen bed, and lovely breakfasts that would be difficult to beat! Highly recommended, as is the very convenient Restuarant across the road from their gate.
