We stayed at the Appledore on our first night in NZ. We stayed in the Riverview suite. It truly was a beautiful room with a beautiful view. The people that run the inn are very nice and accomodating. One problem is that the room does get very hot in the afternoon, and there is no Air Conditioning. Opening the windows doesn't help a lot, either. It cooled down nicely for the evening, and the bed was very comfortable.

Beautiful setting by the river, extremely comfortable accommodation - self contained for privacy, with every convenience imaginable! The owners, Janet and Jim, were always available for help, assistance and advice. We had some wonderful viewings of the birds by the river!
Breakfast basket was delivered the previous evening with fresh fruit and yoghurt, cereal, juice, toast and cake.
Hospitality and accommodation highly recommended! Would have no hestitation in staying there again!

We came half way round the world from Appledore in North Devon to stay at Appledore Lodge. What a wonderful welcome from Janet and Jim! - they gave us a great introduction to New Zealand hospitality. The accommodation was first class, which made my children feel like royalty. We all felt very much at home, and were able to recover from jet lag after the 26 hr flight and then travelling up from Auckland. It was a wonderful way to start our holiday in NZ.

Janet and Jim Pugh - their hospitality was super-duper!
Riverside Studio - we, 32 and 34 years old, stayed there for two days - the rooms and the veranda was super-duper!
We would love to come back at any time :-)
