Russell and Margery welcomed us and we were shown to our room. We went for a tour and walk. 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. Russell passed round a bottle of wine and we had enjoyable conversation. Unlimited Wi-Fi... More

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...

Stayed 2 nights with my sister here & could happily have stayed a couple more. Russell & Margery were fab hosts. Details in the room were brilliant (hairdryer, 2 towels etc). Breakfast was fab & coffee was better than shop bought! Can highly recommend. St arnaud is a fantastic place for waking/running/kayaking & relaxing!

We had a two night stay at the end of what was already a great holiday and thoroughly enjoyed our time with Marjorie, Russell and Ruby. Marjorie prepared us a fantastic breakfast each day and Russell makes a mean flat white with his coffee machine. We really enjoyed chatting to Marjorie and Russell as well as the other guests and...

Had a lovely 2 nights staying with Marjorie and Russell over New Years. The rooms are lovely, as is the house, and the breakfast is out of this world!! Marjorie is an amazing cook! They are very kind and helpful and let us bring the dog along which was a massive bonus. I would absolutely stay there again and really... More

Russell and Marge were warm and welcoming hosts that made our stay most enjoyable. the room was lovely, and their home is situated in a nice tranquil patch of beech forest. Their two Burmese cats are adorable and so very cuddly, and Ruby is a lovely little girl (poodle). Marge's breakfast was outstanding, fresh cherries, boysenberries, strawberries, bacon, eggs, mushrooms,... More

We went through an amazing experience. In wood home full plants around the outside. Cats and a dog. And most welcoming people make sense of home. Homemade breakfast and so delicious.Close to the lake. thank you

A very warm welcome awaits guests at St. Arnaud House – a home away from home & hospitality at its best. Accommodation was delightful and Margery’s meals delicious. Hosts are able to advise on the area and the chalet is only a short walk from Lake Rotoiti. We thoroughly enjoyed our one night stay.

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
