We loved our stay at Birdwood House. The house is lovely and the room is great, big, clean and very well decorated. The breakfasts are amazing, so much food and and all delicious. Barbie and Dave are incredibly helpful and very welcoming. Staying here was so much better than being in a hotel.
We stayed here at the start of our New Zealand trip at the end of Jan 2015. The house is well located and you can take the bus into the city very easily and is in easy reach of local restaurants. We stayed. In the Tui Room which was well furnished. The house is beautifully presented and the breakfasts are excellent. We would certainly stay here again as Barbie and David looked after us so well.
This was our 2nd stay at Birdwood House B&B at it was just as fantastic as the 1st time. This time we stayed 5 days. Barbie & Dave were fabulous and made sure our stay was a special experience. The breakfasts were amazing. Barbie gave us a good choice and her homemade jams were very yummy. She especially got some black pudding for my husband’s breakfast as a treat for him. Very nice.
This B+B fully deserves its five star rating with exceptional standards of hospitality, service and accommodation. It surely must be one of the finest in the whole of NZ! We had a highly enjoyable stay in the deluxe Tui room in early February 2015. We loved the tasteful decor and splendid furnishings, the large comfortable bed, the ample storage space for luggage and the huge bathroom. The accommodation was spotlessly clean. Barby and David were gracious hosts – friendly and helpful without being intrusive. Thank you both!
Barbie & David are charming hosts offering a full service, starting with an advance email detailing driving instructions from Auckland Airport to the B & B. It's conveniently situated for getting into Auckland by bus or driving to Devonport, from where you can get the ferry to Auckland, if you so wish. Birkenhead is walkable for shops & cafes. The gourmet breakfasts are a feature, and Barbie goes out of her way to ensure well varied if you are staying 2 or more days. Just watch your head on the sloping ceilings in the bedrooms!
The owners are charming and helpful, went out of their way to ensure we had an early breakfast so that we could get to our next destination in time for a booked trip. Breakfast is superb, fresh fruit, cereals, yoghurt, juices, cooked breakfast to suit each individual. Close to some good restaurants, very quiet except for birdsong, quality decor and linens, comfortable bed and every facility you could need. I would recommend this to anyone, but book early as it's sure to continue to be popular.
