We stayed two nights and were delighted with the place. Nice walks around the property, very close to town and attractions, place was comfortable and had everything we needed. Sarah is a very busy gal what with the new pizza restaurant they own but was still very available if we needed anything. Good communications before our stay. Great views and... More

During our 5 days stay, our 2 sons enjoyed every day to feed the lambs with milk bottles and to take care of them inside the pen for hours with Sarah's understanding, to collect the chicken eggs, to spend time with the owners' daughters and their horses. The cottage is equipped with about everything you need to have a comfortable... More

My wife and I stayed for two nights in the cottage. Throughout our trip, we stayed in several accommodations and Glacier Rocks had to be the best and most memorable farmstay. It is equipped with everything we needed. The electric floor warmer and bed warmer were especially helpful to us. We woke up one morning with 2 full rainbows set... More

My husband and I stayed in one of the two cottages whilst on holiday in Te Anau. They are down a long driveway on the farm of the owners about 5 minutes drive from town. The only sounds were birdsong and lambs bleating. Serene, peaceful, it is a great place to rest and recharge. The views are glorious and the... More

My girl friend and I stayed two nights at Glacial Rock. I was taken aback by the beautiful self-contained cottage with a car port, facing a large green pasture in front, deer herd to the left and two lovely horses that Sarah and Finn keep. The cottage is right beside their own home, which is an amazing house itself. We... More

We arrived tired and late having flown and driven for hours. We were met by the owner and explained we needed temporary accommodation fo my assistant as his own accomodation would not be available for until tomorrow. We had just picked up his dog from the kennels and Wade explained he carries his kennel on his trailer and he is... More

We thought the cottage was cosy and well equipped, and the breakfasts supplied for our stay were good. However as soon ad we met Sarah she told us that she was tired of B and B, and wanted to re brand the cottages as self contained. It was obvious their focus is on their pizza restaurant in town. It was... More

Contrary to some reviews that need to get a clue, this is not a hotel, but rather a B&B on a working farm. Complaining about chores being done is ridiculous. Sarah and Finn and their kids are traditional hard-working Kiwis. The two little cottages are wonderful and well equipped, in fact the best equipped so far on our month long... More

Our family arrived late on a weekend, after a day of tramping to Key Summit (off the Milford Road), and it was a welcome sight to turn into Glacial Rock to a haven of greenery, quiet and superb views. Lucia the enthusiastic and friendly pet dog gave us a warm welcome. The cottage was replete with every comfort, and the... More

On the plus side the cottage was clean and well equipped. The breakfast supplies were generous and delicious, especially the home made muesli. The location (apart from the disappointing view of the lake) was quiet and picturesque. The swing chair on the porch was a lovely feature, perfect for quiet contemplation. Now to the reasons for my average rating.... The... More
