I am delighted to be able to recommend Ardross House to any prospective travellers. We were two couples starting out on a tour of the South Island, and the welcome we received from Kathryn and MIchael made us feel completely relaxed and at home. Our rooms in the "maids' quarters" were extremely comfortable and well equipped, and we were able... More

we feel so fortunate to have found this property and able to stay two nights. Our room was perfect with a lovely rural setting, the bed was more than comfortable and the bathroom luxurious. The owners were wonderful and made us feel so welcome. We had a sunny lounge we could use and the facility to bring in our own... More

Waipara is a fun little place to stop for wine tasting and Ardross house is right smack in the middle of it. Pegasus bay is right there and most vineyard are just a few minutes drive. This is also closer to the only good food in the area which is at Pegasus bay or in Amberley (Waipara is not a... More

My wife and I stayed 2 nights at Ardross House B&B in Amberley from 12 March 2012. We arrived a little late due to a flight delay but Michael and Kathryn gave us a very warm welcome. They suggested that we should quickly make our way to a local restaurant which they rated very highly. The Nor’ Wester Café proved... More

We spent two nights here while exploring the Waipara wine region. The hosts were most genial, informative, and accommodating. The delicious cooked breakfasts were a special treat. Highly recommended, and we would stay there again.

When our home was made a disaster area by the February earthquake in Christchurch, Michael and Kathryn came to our rescue with a safe and beautiful place to stay, they put us up in the accomodation normally reserved for their family members because they felt sorry for us. We ended up staying a couple of weeks and moving into one... More

We were traveling all the way from California and had an aggressive itinerary to hit 6 cities across New Zealand and Australia in 13 days. We needed a place to stay between Kaikoura (after our dolphin swim) and on our way to the Christchurch airport. Ardross House was the perfect place. It was right next to the Pegasus Bay Winery...

Arduous House is a country house, located on the North Canterbury plain, and is ideally located for Christchurch. The accommodation is comfotable and spacious, with an excellent breakfast provided. Michael and Kathryn were first class hosts and could not have been more helpful.

We happened upon the Ardross House when our plans changed due to the ChCh earthquake. Are we ever glad we found this lovely rural retreat! Michael was a wonderful host and was able to accommodate our last-minute request. We stayed in a large king room with a modern and gorgeous bathroom. There is a little fridge with an electric tea...
