We had the pleasure of meeting Faye and Geoff during February - really enjoyed our stay and the breakfast was beautiful. We were able to drop our things off early as we were moving flats for our daughter and neeeded the room in our car. Nothing was too much trouble for Faye and Geoff - thank you so much. Hope... More

My wife, son and I stayed at the Arden Country House on 19 December. The place is very comfortable for three of us. The country side view is fantastic. The hosts Geoff and Faye are very nice people and that really helps to make our stay a memorable one. It is situated a few kilometers from Dunedin city, so you... More

Arden Country House is a lovely serene little spot outside of Dunedin. We were amazed by the generous hospitality of our hosts Geoff & Faye. Faye's local knowledge about hidden attractions was also fantastic and appreciated. The rooms were spotless and well kept and the breakfasts hearty and delicious! With much thanks to Faye, we are returning home with a... More

We purposely chose Arden House as we needed to be in Dunedin for university orientation weekend and as expected most of the central city accommodation was taken. Geoff and Faye are lovely hosts and their home is spacious and roomy, with the lounge overlooking the valley and hills to the north. The breakfasts are beautifully presented with lots of choice...

Had everything in rooms that we needed. Gorgeous dog. Lots of fantastic travel suggestions and very welcoming to myself and my daughter. SAFE, tranquil setting. Please note no... More

We managed to arrive in Dunedin during university orientation week, so accommodation was non-existent. We drove the 15 or so minutes north to Arden Country House and found Faye and Geoff excellent hosts. Faye's breakfast was beautiful as was the breakfast room and her local knowledge about where to see penguins was invaluable - we were the only tourists. Thanks... More

Three of us stayed at Arden Country house for one night. Cherie had a room in the main house w/o separate bath; Jackie & Peter stayed in the cottage with separate bath, shower. The garden and country setting are terrific; the lamb and goat were a special treat for Peter. We enjoyed Faye's fine breakfasts, marvelous conversation and Geoff's helpful... More
