We stayed for just one night but as soon as we walked in to the St. Arnaud House we felt that we should have extended our schedule. It was a beautiful wooden house with warm and helpful hosts. The kind host helped us how to find the Southern Cross and the exact South which was a special memory for us.... More

First time staying in B&B. It is beyond our expectation. We really enjoyed our 2 nights stay. A good location, walking distance to Lake Rotoiti and short walks to the forest surrounding the lake. We love the house especially the fire place. Our room Bellbird, was quiet and clean. Bed was comfortable. And the host, Russell and Margery are friendly... More

We stayed with Russell and Margery with our 2 friends in March 2015. The rooms and the warm welcome were fantastic. The evening meal was' to die for' - Margery is an excellent cook and we had a lovely evening with another English couple who were staying that night. The next morning we woke to the gorgeous smell of breakfast... More

Russell provided us with detailed information on some excellent local walks, do make some time to enjoy them. Margery's cooking is first-rate, and we had a lovely dinner in addition to a wholesome...

St Arnaud House is in a very peaceful location handy to good biking and walking locations. We spent a very pleasant evening with Margery and Russell enjoying a lovely meal which we had arranged prior to our stay. Our bed was comfortable with nice white linen and towels. Would definitely recommend.

Stayed here a couple of nights whilst tramping in the Alpine Lakes National Parks. Russell and Margery were excellent, convivial hosts providing us with a very comfortable room in their house. Both breakfast and dinner were generous and very well cooked. Conversation ranged far and wide. Russell and Margery have led interesting lives and show a genuine interest in their... More

We had a warm welcome and a lovely meal & stay at St Arnard House. Their home feels like a cozy cabin in the woods, yet close to the lake and Nelson Lakes National Park. Russell and Marjorie made sandwiches with other goodies for us to take with us on our Mt. Roberts walk. We enjoyed talking with them about... More

In the evening we had our evening meal with them [ prearranged ] and had a lovely well cooked meal and dessert all in a relaxed atmosphere.

We arrived early in the day and called by to check that we were expected. Russel answered the door when we rang the bell. Russell confirmed that we were expected and our room was ready if we wished to leave our bags. We were offered the most wonderrful coffee (eat your heart out Starbucks!) and choice of tea for my...
