Hi everyone, this is my 'first time' on tripatini. I read about children and B&B's and wanted to share our experiences We run a small B&B on the Coromandel Peninsula in NZ. We do take children and extended families and its a wonderful experience. Not sure how we do it, but we seem to attract the nicest people and best behaved kids! Many 'Happy birthday's are sung around the breakfast table with Rob playing guitar and singing. Everyone joins in and a family with 2 daughters birthdays on 2 consecutive days, wanted each girl to have their 'own' special breakfast. It was a lovely exerience for all the guests. We've even looked after younger children while parents enjoyed the use of our kayak for an hour. By all means, take your children to a B&B. its a wonderful experience for them too.
