New Zealanders have developed an art of hospitality of their own. They are known for the homely welcome they provide. The most comfortable, pleasant and picturesque establishments are most of the time very small lodges, "Bed & Breakfasts", "farmstays", etc.Have a look at the examples below to decide on your category - Boutique or Best available. Please note that these are examples only and the actual establishments on your particular tour might differ depending on availability.
This type of accommodation is usually offered as a hobby by New Zealanders who are proud of their homes, and love company. Depending on location, dinners are available in-house (we share our hosts' table), or we go out for dinner to a nearby restaurant.
