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

Russell and Marjorie provided many extras; home made cookies with the cup of tea out in the garden surrounded by perfumed lilies. They even arranged Sky Sport at short notice so we could watch the cricket test. Dinner, served... More

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...

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
