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...

As soon as we arrived at St Arnaud House homestay B&B and were welcomed by Russell with a cup of tea and homemade biscuits (our choice - he did offer us a real drink!) we were made to feel as if we were family friends rather than paying guests. Russell and Margery's hospitality is peerless, with friendly conversation, great local... More

We visited St Arnaud knowing little about the place. It is a beautiful spot, great for walkers. We stayed one night at St Arnaud House B&B and I can honestly say it was great. Margery and Russell are really nice and full of great conversation and hospitality. Their place is set amongst beautiful NZ bush and hundreds of birds. I... More

We stayed at some lovely B&B's during our 3 weeks in NZ but we just had to vote Margery and Russell as the best. We felt so at home and woke up to the smell of Margery's delicious home made muffins every morning. The breakfasts were superb as were the evening meals we had with them too. The room was... More
