湖岸にある、大きな窓ときれいな庭の宿。2階の部屋には、望遠鏡もあって湖岸の景色や庭に来る小鳥たちを眺めて楽しく過ごせます。ベランダもあるので、そこに出て景色を見たり星空を見たりしても楽しいです。空気がきれいで灯りもさほどないので、星がよく見えます。天の川が星の集まりなのだと実感できる景観に大満足です! オーナーのKimさんも親しみやすい優しい方でした。アメリカ出身とのことで、英語も日本人にわかりやすい発音をされます。カリカリベーコンに新鮮フルーツのおいしい朝食や、周りのおすすめポイント紹介、きれいに整えられた部屋などゆったりするのにはもってこいの素敵な宿です。 おすすめされた湖岸散歩をしたり、部屋でのんびりして過ごした2日間はとても気持ちのよい滞在でした。また是非利用したい宿です。 The BB with a great view and a beautiful garden at the lakeside. We enjoyed them with a telescope at the 2 floor room. Also, we could see the magnificent starry heavens from this BB. The stars are sooo clear and big thanks to the fresh air! Ms.Kim, the owner of this BB was very friendly and... More

We recently stayed at the Turret to attend a wedding held at Stoneridge Estate and were pleasantly surprised that the venue was so close to our accomodation as that definitely added to the convenience and enjoyment of the experience. The accomodation and hospitality was beyond reproach and we had an incredible weekend in Queenstown. Which was added to by the... More

We spent a couple of nights at The Turret and enjoyed it thoroughly. A great room with an excellent outlook over the beautiful garden. We sat out on the terrace reading and sipping on some good local wine. Breakfasts were excellent and we enjoyed our in depth discussions with Peter who had lots of good advice on things to see...

Exceptional house, exceptional garden and exceptional views all added to a feeling of luxury. We had opted for The Turret bedroom and were delighted with the standard of accommodation. However we would have welcomed to have been provided with sheer/bath gel, hair conditioner and quality hand soap rather than dettol antiseptic! Little things can make difference and such toiletries are... More

I have stayed at The Turret twice and both times I have been awed by the views, delighted by the setting and thoroughly enjoyed a deliciously cooked breakfast by Kim. The accommodation is superb. Each room has it's individual character and is extremely clean and comfortable. This last time we splurged and stayed in the Turret Suite. It is enormous... More

We absolutely loved our stay at the Turret as the setting and views are absolutely breath taking. The Lazor's have a beautifully manicured garden and the rooms are extremely clean and comfortable. Kim made a very delicious breakfast and always made sure we were sorted with the best recommendations for dining and activities. We enjoyed the personal service and getting... More

Fiona is extremely lovely and really makes you feel at home. The cooked breakfast is amazing and Fiona is very flexible with when you want breakfast which is great for those that like to sleep in whilst on holiday. The views over Lake Hayes looking at Mt Coronet are amazing and a fantastic way to wake up in the morning.... More

Fantastic location, away from the noise of town (5 mins from Frankton). We had the top floor and it was wonderful. Great bed, separate living room, balcony and separate bathroom with an amazing claw-foot bath. Fiona is the perfect host and can rustle up a breakfast to rival any restaurant. Highly recommended.

We spent two nights at this lovely b&b staying in the turret suite which was spotless and beautifully appointed. We had a large bedroom with sleigh bed, a sitting room with panoramic views over Lake Hayes and Coronet Peak, a large bathroom and walk in wardrobe. We also had a small balcony. The breakfasts were delicious and nicely served. Our... More

This was the best place we stayed!!! We were on a 3 week Holiday in New Zealand and stayed at over 6 different places in New Zealand. The Turret was by far the best for the view, price, cleanliness and hospitality. It is a beautiful house opposite a great hike around Lake Hayes. We also walked to the winery down... More
