What do our members say?

The greatest benefit of joining has been meeting others in the Association which has been wonderful.  Also knowing that there is a benchmark standard to work towards has been good to know and gives me goals to aspire towards in the future with my own business.   Nathan @ Dovecote House (joined us this year)


It’s a sense of security knowing we have the professional support from the Association - just a phone call away.  Janice @ Pacific View B&B (with us for over 12 years)


The Board have been working behind the scenes over the past 18 months to help all of us with the changing dynamics of the hosted accommodation market which has been invaluable. We would highly recommend joining the Assn.  Sally @ Number 41 B&B (with us for over two years).
