Vicki and I stopped for the night enroute to a mountain bike adventure a few weeks back (we were destined for The Old Ghost Road - but that's another adventure) To be honest we weren't sure what to expect. What we discovered was some good southern hospitality, a commodity to be cherished. The fire was roaring, the lounge welcoming, the... More

We stayed in the closest room to the front entrance. The hosts were very friendly and even helped fold our washedclothes. Nice warm fireplace. However I went for a run around the lake and when I came back, my wife had just finished a normal length shower, and my shower was cold - which made me very cranky. Apparently the... More

Thank you for your comments St Arnaud house apologizes and also recognize that the Robin room shower hot water cylinder is too small for two showers to be taken directly one after the other, this is in the process as being fixed by fitting a much larger cylinder as i am writing this report. There is/are extra electric heaters in... More

Very nice wooden house in the middle of the forest, but close to the lake. Surrounded by green and flowers . I suggest to arrive at the place in the late afternoon: you will hear a concert provided by joyful birds. The hosts are extremely nice,they know very well the region and have provided helpful suggestions. The breakfast was superb... More

We stayed 2 x nights with our fantastic hosts who were very helpful and made sure we knew everything we needed to know about what to enjoy in St Arnaud. Cooked breakfast was outstanding and room comfortable. A great bed and breakfast destination in a beautiful part of our country.

We stayed here on the second night of our ten day road trip across the South Island. Russell and Margery welcomed us into their home and were very knowledgeable about both the local area and the rest of the South Island. Our Room was spacious and clean, and St Arnaud House is a short walk from the local cafe and... More

St Arnaud house was our first experience of a New Zealand B&B and it certainly set a high standard. The room was luxurious and comfortable, but what I most remember is the food - from tea with homemade cakes and fudge on arrival, a dinner to rival a high quality restaurant, and a huge breakfast. Margery is an excellent cook.... More

Margery and Russell were delightful hosts. They are very warm and welcoming, very willing and able to help with questions, suggestions, directions, etc. Their dog Ruby is the dearest gem and even the cats will come snuggle with you in the living room; they seem to especially prefer men guests. Margery's breakfasts are tremendous...stuff yourself and skip lunch. Delicious! We... More

Jeannie and I stayed in the upstairs room, which was quiet, lots of room, well ventilated, nice views, comfy bed... What a fine experience we had visiting for three nights with Russ and Margery at the St. Arnaud House B&B: - Yummy breakfasts and dinners, with great company - A living room table that was just right for my computer...
