“The most awesome hosts” *****

5 of 5 starsReviewed 5 days ago NEW

Karen and Craig are the most welcoming host I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. We stayed 6 nights and the entire time they made us feel like it was our home. The room was large and very clean.  Breakfast was fantastic with so much to choose from and not an issue to have a cooked breakfast with an additional charge. The home is large with views to the city of Auckland and when there are more than one guest room booked you would hardly know anyone else was around. We will be back for some more Kiwi hospitality.

Room Tip: City views at night.

“First class accommodation, with the nicest and friendliest hosts (not forgetting Jackie)”

5 of 5 starsReviewed 3 days ago NEW

Karen and Craig really went the extra mile for me and my granddaughter over the 14 nights that I stayed here! The place was spotless and the service was beyond reproach. Karen even put me on a detox diet- because I wanted to shrink my waist line- And it worked! Cheers Karen!! On learning about my granddaughter, they upgraded my room without me asking so that she could stay here whenever. I've been in the hospitality trade for the last 20 years and I would like to hope that people think as much of me as I do of Karen and Craig- you’re doing a first class job! It's been worth the 26,000 miles I've travelled to stay in a place like this. I'm 80 years old and never been looked after like this is my whole life. I think that Karen, Craig and Jackie have made a friend for life in my 13 year old granddaughter who's been able to stay with me whenever she liked. Very well done the Duncan family! God bless you.

Room Tip: All the rooms are outstanding with fantastic views all way round!

“Best bed & breakfast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed 1 week ago

Great experience! Excellent and immaculately cleaned rooms. Fantastic bed and linen - probably the best I ever had (better than in 5* hotel). However the most important - B&B hosts Craig and Karen. Their hospitality, friendly smiles and good advises (sightseeing) over healthy and fresh breakfast are second to none. Thank you very much - I really enjoyed staying at your place and our interesting conversations. Hope to see you again, with best regards, Denis

“Excellent & Hospitable B&B”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2013

This has been an outstanding 3 weeks for me at this hospitable & courteous B&B lodging serviced by Craig & Karen. Warm couple and make you feel really at home with their fantastic service offering and home made food. The entire house including its rooms, toilets, kitchen, garden is more the clean and tidy. I had a fantastic time and will definitely be back to stay with my family members for the house is very spacious and has rooms of different sizes to suit both families and singles.
Keep it up guys....

“Very good B & B”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2013

This B & B is a good place to stop and stay. The hosts are very friendly and relaxed - easy to get to know. The location is quiet even though it is in Auckland and near the motorway. There is a little nature reserve (or similar) next door to the property. The place was clean, the room was quite spacious, the bathroom was modern and the bed was comfortable. Breakfast was nice.

I  spent 17 nights with very gracious, hospitable hosts.  Nothing was too much trouble for Craig or Karen who both made my stay most enjoyable and relaxing.  Their home is spacious, clean with wonderful views amidst tranquil surroundings.  Thank you both so much for making me so welcome and I look forward to staying with you on my next trip.  I highly recommend Fairview Heights.

“Friendly staff”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2013

Stayed here for a night. Very comfortable bed. And was pretty lucky, as there was nobody else in the wing I had bathroom and toilet to myself.
Friendly staff, very helpful and welcoming. A nice kiwi breakfast the next day, with lovely views.

Stayed January 2013, traveled solo
We stayed three nights and loved the room.  The bed was great.  In the morning we had a delightful breakfast.   Karen and Craig were most helpful finding other places to stay and points of interest. Unlike most places we visited here we had free wireless internet.  We wanted to move in permanently.

Friendly hosts in a country setting

I really enjoyed the semi-rural location, plant and bird life and great bush views.

Albany Fairview Heights Bed and Breakfast

The couple are very friendly and pleasant. The room and house I couldn't fault. It is a very nice quiet location.

 


The Nikau Suite is luxurious, quite and elegant with a comfortable bed and a great shower.  Even better is the
grace humour and generosity of Karen and Craig our hosts.


Sara McCay, Hawaii, 14 March 2011


I would not hesitate to recommend Fairview Heights Bed and
Breakfast to anyone looking for reasonably priced accommodation that is out of the ordinary.  The rooms are clean, spacious and comfortable with a charming outlook onto a peaceful bush clad garden.  The hosts Craig and Karen could not be more hospitable and went out of their way to make me feel welcome and part of the family.  They have a genuine interest in people which is reflected in the care that they give to their guests.  A treasure in Albany.
