Bed and Breakfast and Homestays in NZ
Bed and Breakfast is an accommodation that modernises the age-old, world-wide practice of travellers staying at a private residence, with a cooked or continential breakfast included. Local knowledge of the host family is a tremendous asset as typically there are just a few rooms and personal contact is greater than in a hotel setting. Often the bed and breakfast is a converted old stately residence with the owner's family acting as staff. B & B lodges have a loyal following as many find that they get a "home away from home" experience, often with better value than with hotel stays.
New Zealand Bed and Breakfast (B & B) Lodges offer many unique options, of either staying in an historic home graciously converted to guest accommodation, purpose built luxury lodges, or a cosy Kiwi hosted B & B. Whatever your choice of B & B accommodation in New Zealand, you can be guaranteed a true Kiwi welcome.
Bed and breakfasts (B & B), as their name suggests, almost always include breakfast in their tarrif, but you may find that dinner and drinks with your hosts is also an option and available for an additional cost. Some hosts also offer their guests guided tours of the local area, which can be a great way of seeing places that other travellers would miss.
Because of New Zealand's diverse range of cultures and landscapes, each B & B in New Zealand is different. Perhaps an idyllic seaside retreat, a self contained bed & breakfast apartment with your own privacy, a B & B hotel with ensuite, or a secluded romantic escape in New Zealand's beautiful countryside. Many New Zealand B & B hosts pay special care to the appearance of their homes and gardens, and any traveller will leave a NZ with a fulfillment of a unique New Zealand experience.
