Highway House is a characterful English-style Arts and Crafts residence which incorporates three bedrooms only for guests. Whilst the house dates from 1935, the interior is refurbished to the standard of the 21st century. The house is set in pleasant gardens and is only 1.3 kilometers from the centre of town. There is ample private parking. Hosts are travellers themselves and will concern themselves with your plans and your comfort. A full cooked breakfast is provided.

Upstairs "sunroom" small. Shared

Upstairs "sunroom" small. Shared bathroom, poor view, no radio or TV. Excellent beds, superb breakfast, very kindly and interesting hosts. Parking on side road caused no problems. We enjoyed our stay.

Lovely & Fantastic B&B

A lovely Bed and Breakfast. The Victorian house is charming, and we stayed in the Gold Room - which was lovely. Our hosts told us all the places to go see penguins, other points of interest, and dining suggestions. We came back quite late because the penguins in the summer come back later (around sunset). I sort of loved the bathroom. Luckily we didn't have to share with the other room as it was unoccupied the night we stayed. There was a little tea station outside our room, and my husband loved all the little snacks available there. Breakfast was wonderful - lots of options and delicious. I wish we could have stayed longer, but we were just stopping for a night during our road trip around New Zealand.

Entertainment tip: Short drive from hotel

Go see the Blue Penguins and pay for the premium ticket - it's worth it! Also, start lining up at the door about 30-45 minutes before the doors open to get the very best corner seat. Unfortunately, no photography is allowed inside the "sanctuary," but we encountered some blue penguins who got a little lost when we were driving back and managed to take a few pictures then.
