Fodor's Expert Review Oinako Bed and Breakfast

99 Beach Rd., Akaroa, Canterbury, 7520, New Zealand

Surrounded by a tranquil garden, just a two-minute walk from town and a few steps from Akaroa Harbour, this character Victorian manor house has its original, ornate plaster ceilings and marble fireplaces. The house has been completely refurbished since the earthquakes and reopened in 2015 with modern bathrooms and amenities. You'll also find fresh flowers in the spacious and pleasantly decorated rooms. Drive to the far end of Beach Road where the road runs onto what looks like a private driveway shared by a number of properties. Just follow that road a little farther to Oinako, which is marked.

PROS

  • old-fashioned leafy garden overlooking the harbor
  • tea and coffee and cookies, feather pillows, and duvets add a luxurious touch

CONS

  • Wi-Fi doesn't reach the rooms but it's free in the lounge and lobby areas
