We throughly enjoyed our 2 nights spent with Michelle at Tirimoana house as the effort she puts in to creating an amazing experience. From the breathtaking views from the bedrooms to the amazing cooked breakfasts with fresh herbs from Michelle's garden - incredible. We were offered a cooked dinner for token fee, which i can say pound for pound one... More

After treating my girlfriend to a night away last year at Tirimoana House, we decided to come back for a repeat visit on our mini break away. Needless to say the second stay was as good as the first! We once again stayed in the Sunrise Suite with beautiful unencompassed views down Queen Charlotte Sound. The atmosphere of Tirimoana House... More

We recently stayed at Tirimoana house during a visit to the marlborough sounds. Unfortunately the same time the cyclone came through. We were delighted by our rooms - very special and lovely decor, perfect to just lie on the bed, read and relax. Michelle was lovely and an amazing cook. I would definetly recommend opting for her home cooked meal... More

The hosts are very friendly and gave a lot of directions. Breakfast is very good, very intimate setting where you can talk to other guests. The setting is beautiful, not far from Picton but feeling much more remote. However the room was very cold, truly cold to sleep at about 16-17ºC, and the bathroom was small and not well lit.

We stayed at Tirimoana House in January having travelled round the South Island and just before our return to UK. This was without doubt a highlight of our one month stay in NZ. The room was wonderful, the evening meal a delight - perfect. We have recommended Tirimoana House to friends who are travelling to NZ later in 2014. Michelle... More

Michelle and Chris couldn't have been more helpful and accommodating. Lovely views over the Queen Charlotte Sound enjoyed from both the expansive common deck, where one dines al fresco, weather permitting, and the private balconies. Very comfortable bed and pleasant room. Swimming pool and hot tub for lazing after QC tramping.

What a beautiful place tucked away by Queen Charlotte Sound! Michelle is very welcoming and prepares a fabulous evening meal. Very flavorful and beautifully presented--especially the dessert. My husband & I loved chatting with her about the history of the place and her own recent re-involvement in the B&B. We also hiked up to and on the Queen Charlotte Track... More

Our hostess, Michelle, was very welcoming. The place is beautiful, comfortable and spotlessly clean. Breakfast and dinner were delightful and the location is stunning. I cannot praise it highly enough.
