we only stayed one night. The room was adequate but there were no tea and coffee making facilities. The room was very comfortable and spotlessly clean, with an en suite bathroom. Free wifi was only 50mb which was just enough to read a few emails. Our host, Neroli, was lovely and cooked us a great breakfast.

Neroli Nolan not only a friendly hostess but her purpose built B&B has some wonderful scenic photos of the Haast area captured by herself. A very competent photographer. We stacked up on her photo postcards, her Native Clematis is stunning. Oops forgot to mention, very comfortable room, great outlook to an island where a bunch of sealers were maroons for... More

We stayed the night after finishing the the Copland track and it was lovely - everything seemed very luxurious! The room was really comfortable and the breakfast great. The wifi didn't bother us - in such a secluded place, I'm not sure that you can expect anything more. The Haast visitor centre is also highly recommended - great exhibitions to... More

Neroli is a lovely host sharing a beautiful home. She made us very welcome and gave us some useful suggestions for walks in the area, and then the best spot to photograph the setting sun. Dinner and breakfast were fantastic. Highly recommended

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
