We stayed here for one night (wish it had been longer) Neroli was a great host. She made us feel so welcome and it was so homely. Thanks to her advise we changed our route to Picton Ferry which meant we did not have such a long drive and also enjoyed the scenery at our leisure. We would highly recommend... More

First off, there aren't many options for lodging once you leave Wanaka and prior to getting to Fox Glacier. I decided on somewhere in between so we could do some of the many day hikes along the way. The room we had was nicely done, and she had everything ready for our arrival. I do have to say it she... More

We spent one night at Collyer House enroute from the West Coast to Fiordland. The public spaces (lounge and dining room) were large and comfortable. The bedroom and ensuite bath were small though adequate but we were dismayed to find that the doors to the individual bedrooms did not lock. The reception we received from the hostess was cool compared... More

Collyer House is well appointed with a beautiful view of the Tasman Sea from most every room. Neroli was a perfect hostess. We intended to drive through Haast on our way to Wanaka, but the road was closed due to rock slides on Haast Pass. We made a spur of the moment arrangement with Neroli. She had a fire going... More

Collyer House is one of the few places to stay in this area of New Zealand, but we made a lucky find! Neroli greeted us with a pot of tea which we drank taking in the evening views. After an evening at the local restaurant, we returned and had a great chat before bed. Our breakfast next morning was delicious,... More

We stayed with Neroli at Collyer house en route from Franz Josef to Wanaka.The house is modern with super views over the beach , especially at sunset. Our room was of moderate size but adequate. However TV and tea-making facilities were not provided. Wifi was available. Neroli's meals - we had breakfast and an evening meal, were extremely good .... More

We avoid B&B places. However, we wanted to stay at Haast to break up our driving on the West Coast. I'm not sorry for our decision - just wished we were B&B types and could have enjoyed all it had to offer. We stayed in our ~little~ room.

Collyer House is beautiful! Lovely rooms, authentic antiques, fabulous photos and interesting family history made for a comfortable and memorable stay. Neroli provides a fabulous breakfast, always engaging in lively and informative conversation. A pastoral setting by the sea. Do visit Collyer House!

We have just spent a night here breaking the journey between Arrowtown and Franz Josef. It has been a good choice as Haast is quite remote. Neroli was a great host, recommended places for dinner and made us a grateful pot of tea on our arrival. Our room was lovely with a king size bed, plenty of suitcase storage space... More

Outstanding hospitality from Neroli and Brian who welcomed us into their home like old friends. The house is large and comfortable, although some might not find the contemporary furnishings to their liking. Rooms exceptionally clean and comfortable. Free Wifi in room but no tea/coffee making facilities nor TV, though Neroil quite happy to make drinks. The house is isolated and... More
