We stayed at Swallows Ridge for one night with our family and we loved it. It was immaculate and as a self confessed "clean freak" I was delighted with the standard of cleanliness and attention to detail. Our hosts, Mike and Chris were so friendly and welcoming and we were made to feel so welcome and nothing was too much...

Once again I was not disappointed with this fantastic choice for accommodation. I travel many miles on business and I make a point at staying at Swallows Ridge. Not only the restfulness and view but the pure customer service. You are treated like a member of the family and that's in a good way. Its always fun to wake up...

We stayed at Swallows Ridge for one night. Everything in this B and B was pristine with particular attention to detail. The views were amazing and I think if we had stayed here in the summer, the outside space would have been very difficult to beat. The range of breakfasts offered was very good and Mike's cooking was certainly above...

Gorgeous views and lovely hosts! If you love these 2 things, then this place is for you. Situated in Kerikeri, Swallows ridge was just beautiful. The care taken to make us feel welcome to the amazing breakfasts, we felt like this was a home away from home. The picturesque views from Swallows ridge while swimming in the pool made our...

Mike and Chris were delightful and altho we only had a one night stay, they were very accommodating and helpful. They are located out in the country, a 10-15 min drive, but worth it for the beautiful scenery and immaculate home! The breakfast was yummy and we wish we had been able to stay longer!

We stayed for 2 nights with Chris and Mike and wish it could have been longer. They were both great hosts and made us feel really welcome in their lovely home.

Just spent two wonderful nights at Swallows Ridge and loved charming home and the lovely owners. From the first moment we arrived all our needs were taken.
