Traveling with a toddler, we were a little nervous staying at a B&B, but John and Lesley made us feel welcome right from our arrival through our 3 night stay. From showing our little one around the property (doves, chickens, and eels... so exciting!), to provide extra blankets and towels for her to sleep on the couch, to friendly questions and suggestions each day, they made it a great experience. The accommodations in the stables were comfortable and it was easy to feel "at home" with amenities and kitchen set-up. The breakfast was amazing... beautiful and delicious and locally sourced. It's been months and I am still remembering the scrambled eggs, roasted tomatoes, and thick toast. Really can't ask for more! We loved the Akaroa area as well, and this location was a perfect jumping off point for other adventures and exploration nearby. Thank you for the lovely hospitality Lesley and John! Grateful that our journey brought us your way. We look forward to returning in coming years!

Great hospitality very welcoming. Nice clean rooms and comfy bed. Balcony to sit out on looking over the lovely garden, and forest area to explore. Great breakfast left feeling rejuvenated. Thanks John and Lesley.

The weather wasn’t great but staying at Blythcliffe made up for that. Set in stunning grounds that now has a real autumn feel. Lots of pieces of art scattered around the grounds just adds to the atmosphere. We were upgraded to the best room as we were the only guests. Beautiful with kitchen and dining table - we could have had a dinner party! The breakfast was excellent with homemade crossiants. Cannot recommend this highly enough.

The most delightful experience to complete the ambience of Akaroa. John and Lesley were 19/19 hosts and were very pleasant to make everything beautiful. Excellent beds, excellent food excellent comfort.

Amazing location, beautiful setting, excellent breakfast. Comfortable room, a bit small, but adequate. Very hot weekend, proved difficult as no air con in the room (not a surprise for a heritage building). Stunning grounds, access to balcony and sitting room.

This is the bed and breakfast that everyone fantasizes about: charming gardens, gracious and helpful hosts, beautiful trails on the three acre property. John and Leslie are extremely accommodating and eager to share their love of the Banks peninsula. They served freshly baked croissants, fruit salad and cereals along with eggs cooked to order and local smoked salmon and local bacon for breakfast. Blythecliff is one block from the Main Street of Akaroa shops, kayaking and 1/2 mile from dolphin cruise boats. We stayed in The Stables room which was totally renovated 9 years ago. Brand new bathroom and full kitchen, king bed with lovely linens. Breakfast on the dining room with beautiful red and white China. Leslie irons the linen napkins for each day. I hated to leave.

This historic homestead is set in a delightful garden with native bush. The house is furnished with quaint period pieces with flair for design evident. The hosts are very knowledgeable on the area and places to see. The bed was comfy with quality linen. The breakfast was amazing with all needs catered for and more with delightful crockery and napkins. Easy walk to town shops eating places and the sea. The stay of two nights met all expectations and was great value.

My wife and I stayed just for 1 night. The B&B is a lovely very old homestead on a large garden site that is within walking distance of most restaurants. The breakfast was fabulous with a wide range of options.

Great accommodation, great hosts, and great breakfasts. As one of the oldest former residences of a bygone era, this property is a perfect choice when visiting the historic French settlement of Akaroa.
