We stayed here for one night during travels through the South Island. On arrival we were greeted by the friendly and chatty Olivia who saw I was heavily pregnant so upgraded us to the Victorian room (ensuite versus private bathroom). The house is lovely, with lots of small details and interesting history. Everything was clean and tidy, and we had... More

We spent a couple of nights at Lisburn House and really enjoyed it. The house itself has numerous original features including some original fireplaces and ceilings with amazing plasterwork. You can see everywhere the care and attention to detail that has gone into restoring the property and in maintaining it to a very high standard. Olivia & Alan were very... More

We arrived at Lisburn House in awful weather, hail and high winds, but as soon as we were invited in the warmth of the open fire was so inviting, but the warmth of Olivia & Alan (not forgetting Willie) was even better. It was such a pleasure to meet you and share your beautiful home. Nothing was to much trouble,... More

This trip is a sort of second honey moon I planned for my husband because the first one was a disaster ( thanks to a horrible travel agent in India from Goa)... Wow what a wonderful experience we've had so far in NZ. I travelled the world looking for something majestic and found it right here in NZ. Olivia and... More

We have stayed here on the first leg of our New Zealand adventure for 2 nights. Olivia is just exceptional. Her hospitality is second to none and having seen our tiredness last night helpfully suggested we stayed for the 2nd night. Breakfast was delightful, hot and plenty of choice. The house is just an amazing piece of history and as... More

Our stay with Lisburn House was the most memorable accommodation experience during our honeymoon trip in New Zealand. We were entirely overwhelmed by the exquisiteness of this beautifully decorated and well-maintained historic house. The house kept reminding us how much passion and effort that the owners have put into it. We stayed in the Blue Room and felt like walking... More

From the first moment, I felt welcomed, in this fine heritage home. Nothing was too much trouble and my every need was anticipated and catered for. Fine yet substantial food, quality wines and beverages, with a good range of herbal tea options

Olivia is very nice and I feel like I am her old friend. This house is still in a good condition and could retain the Victorian decoration. Lovely cat and dog and the breakfast is absolutely the best of our stays in New Zealand. Regret not to try the dinner in this house. I love the idea of no hard... More

This is a lovely B&B in terms of both accommodation and the hosts. The house is almost 150 years old, in very good condition and is appropriately appointed, fitting in with the age of the building. The Victorian Room made our stay feel a bit special and this is a good venue for singles or couples. The sitting room with... More

My sister and her husband had their 40th wedding anniversary dinner at LH, and it was magically wonderful, as several people have told us since. Excellent food, attentive service all night. Very friendly host and hostess (they regarded us as family, as we stayed three nights). Beautiful rooms, meticulous attention to detail in decoration and amenities, private facilities for the...
