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

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
