We stayed here for 1 night and due to a cancellation of a trip decided to stay another night because of the perfect location, nice cottage and friendly/helpful manager. Free WiFi. Electric blankets on beds. The manager could also not do enough, very attentive. Would highly recommend.

A very well situated set of 10 cottages, located at the end of a cul-de-sac (so absolute quiet), yet only and 2/3 minute walk to the centre of the village and all local amenities. The units are well set out and equipped with adequate parking immediately outside them. The proprietors could not be more helpful with advice on places to... More

Reception was welcoming and the guys had a sense of humor! Gave us excellent recommendations for a short glacier view walk and for dinner options. Cottage was clean with good kitchenette furnishings and okay toiletries. The setting was quiet and we were lucky to have a nice view. I found the bed a bit uncomfortable and the pillows extra firm.... More

The cottages are clean, comfortable, warm and great value for money. We stayed here two nights and pretty much parked the car and walked everywhere in town. Lots of restaurants and eateries close by. Friendly staff member upon check in who provided a couple of small discount coupons for things in town which was appreciated. Upon checkout the lovely man... More

I loved my stay here, although had booked a glacier view room and not sure whether it was the bad weather or the location, but I didn't really see the glacier. That said, would absolutely stay here again! I loved the small cabins, it was quiet because its tucked up the back of town (which is very small) - the... More

Like all previous reviews, we can't stop praising 10 cottages on their cleanliness. It probably win hands down to the rest of the Hotels e.g (peppers & crowne) that we have stayed in New Zealand in terms of cleanliness and well thought design of the rooms. House keeping is superb! We were warmly welcome by Tony and was given a... More

We were pleasantly surprised with these little cottages in the mountains. They're spacious, clean and they had full-kitchen amenities. The town centre and all restaurants are all within walking distance. The cottages were a different lodging experience than your normal hotel so it was a good place to stay while visiting the glaciers.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review. I am glad you enjoyed your stay and in particular that you took the time to see the glow worms, while they are only 3-5 minutes walk from the Cottages most people don’t take the time to go and see them. As they are free and very close personally I... More
