This place was amazing. The cottages are lovely and quiet with fires for the winter. they are all separated so you don't see anyone else if you don't want to. We were welcomed with a personalised welcome note which was a nice touch and some fudge, yummy. Would recommend this to people that want to get away from the hussle... More

Checked into a cottage with no expectations. I was thrilled to find a large space with log fire, sofa, cooking facilities, spa bath. Even a personalised welcome note. It was all very clean, the bed was comfy. We looked forward to getting back each evening to sit in front of the fire. Hosts were friendly. Walking distance to town centre.... More

Nice and helpful receptionist. Great view of the harbour, 2 minutes to town center with private atmosphere. The cottage is full of facilities and kitchenette. We like the in-room spa pool which is totally fun. 💪 Strongly recommend to family and couple travellers.

I cannot over-recommend this gem. For the price of a room, we got a fully serviced private cottage with a spacious and warm living area, full kitchen, glorious sea + bush view, spa bath, fireplace, car park, laundry facilities, and a lovely accommodating host. The mini fridge was making some odd sounds when we arrived and it was promptly replaced... More

Great friendly welcome / immaculate presentation of the unit / fire was going when we arrived, a chilly day but spectacular views over the harbour watching the weather change. Very private, and felt like we were miles from Christchurch - lovely time was had by all!

We stayed here a few years ago and it was great. A good price, good location and an amazing view. Rooms were big and had a breakout area which is great when travellng with family as we were. We used it as a base for our travels and it worked very well.

We stayed at Ashcroft House which was beautiful! We arrived in the dark and it was cold but the house was beautiful and warm with lovely linen and bathrobes. Three bedrooms and we woke up to beautiful water views in the morning with pretty birdsongs and a beautiful garden setting. The kitchen and bathrooms were well set up and very... More

We just spent 2 nights at Akaroa Cottages in the Woodside Seaview Cottage. The cottages are very nice - modern, clean and provide everything you need, including a small kitchenette. We loved the log fire and comfortable bed. They are very private, secluded and quiet except for the beautiful bird songs in the morning. Laundry facilities are available in a... More

We have just returned from our second stay at Akaroa Cottages, this time for 7 nights. On both occasions we have had excellent service, clean and comfortable accommodation. We love the view from the deck, living area and bedroom. We also love the location, very quiet, lovely grounds with pleasant birdsong all day long. Distance from town is not an... More

We had one night at the Akaroa Cottages and would have liked to spend a bit longer here. It was a lovely wee cottage and had a fire that we lit. We did feel that the 10 min walk to get into town would have been a bit misleading as it seemed a bit further out than this, and you... More

Thank you for taking the time to review our property, While the walk along the main road down into the village timing is different for everyone 10-20 mins to the rec ground is about normal. This walk is not for everyone and i don't recommend in the winter months as it is too dark. We hope to see you back... More
