The St. Itas guesthouse is fantastic! Our room was perfect - clean, quiet and had everything we could need. Our hosts were very friendly and incredibly helpful. Their yard is so peaceful and made for a beautiful place to relax. The breakfast they provided was one of the best of our multi-week trip and we talked about it for days! We would absolutely stay here again and will recommend it to everyone we know traveling to NZ.

Beautiful gardening & view from room. We like the living room (wood burning & multiple international TV channels & spacious) . Imrpovement: May hear bathing sound from washroom from nearby room, but it's acceptable.

8/10 Very good

Very nice breakfirst. It’s has a nice and comfy lounge and pool room, though I didn’t not get to enjoy it due to my one night stay in transit. Nice little garden right outside my window on the ground floor and the owner is generous with tea and coffee supply.
