We stayed for two nights to hopefully see the glaciers on a heli trip, and visit the hot spas. The cottage was excellent. Cute little balcony and peaceful place. Good bathroom with a great shower. The staff at The Terrace (where you check in and the offices are) were very helpful and friendly in showing us the town and helping... More

I really loved my stay at 10 cottages. Our cottage was clean, comfortable (great shower) and well equipped and it provided us with the opportunity to have some 'down time' from the road. The reception staff were really helpful and provided us with restaurant and take away tips (do not miss a doughnut at the local bakery). I would definitely... More

This was just the type of accomodation we were looking for, clean, bright and spacious with good facilities and close to the village and sights. We wanted to self cater and appreciated the very clean kitchen and facilities provided. The good wifi was a bonus. We had a very peaceful, private and relaxing stay. The cottages are well cared for... More

This is a wonderful little property with literally 10 cottages. Each one is independent with large rooms, kitchenette (including a microwave, mini fridge and a toaster), outdoor sitting space, a parking spot and a spacious bathroom. The room was clean and well maintained too. It is located very close to the town center (a 10 minute walk) with plenty of... More

We arrived without a booking and luckily got one of the last rooms. The rest of the motel appeared to be booked out with middle-aged bikers. It meant parking was easy. The room was comfortable and I have no complaints. Very close to town, we walked to dinner and lunch. There are a number of bush walks close to the... More

We stayed in one of the cottages. Well appointed with a double bed plus a proper single too. There was a small kitchen area with microwave, toaster kettle etc. The room was very clean and had everything one would need :) Loved the fast free wifi connection ( free wifi lacking in NZ) is usually limited and have to pay...

Thanks for taking the time to write a review. I am glad you enjoyed the free wifi and our central location. Unfortunately for both you and us once you went to modify your original booking with booking.com there were a number of errors booking.com created by the manual change, including you being over charged initially, which we raised to booking.com....

Modern and clean cabins, too close between them, no good views from them. We had no wi fi at all during our 2 days stay. Friendly staff. I would rather search for another place to stay. There are better options I guess

Thanks for taking the time to write a review. I am glad you found the rooms modern. We have two types of studio rooms, if you would like a room with a view and do decide to come back please book a Mountain View Studio cottage rather than a standard studio cottage (views are of course limited in wet weather)....

We stumbled on these cottages by accident, and were so glad. They are very well appointed, extremely comfortable with a queen and single bed, good sized bathroom and kitchenette. We've stayed in a lot of cabin type accommodation like this, and this was by far the best. Our hosts were full of information and so, so friendly. Like arriving home... More
