We stayed in Rimu just for one night. A great little place with a comfortable bed, good hot shower, a great view, and a fun outside bathtub! Great hosts who were very helpful and gave good advice about where to eat etc.

We really enjoyed our one night in Miro cottage - particularly the outdoor bath which was lovely and relaxing after a long drive. We would recommend reading about your cottage before booking as some definitely had better views than others.

Stayed one night in Miro Cottage and would happily have stayed longer if schedules had allowed. It’s a good size bed room which has ensuite shower/toilet, hot drinks making facility, fridge and a toaster. The room had large patio doors which open onto a private, secluded, decked area with sofa, easy chairs and table, overlooking the sea – great for... More

What a delight it was to stay in Rimu, Hydrangea Cottages. We received a warm welcome and were appreciative of the extra touches like beautiful soaps, natural linen on the bed, thoughtful decorations, that made the stay memorable. What a wonderful way to slip into dusk, by having a soak in the outdoor bath looking out to the garden and... More

The 'cottage' we had was the upstairs apartment! Lovely situation, furnishings were good, though not so flashy that we could not relax. Gardens were great, though the trees had grown so much that the view of the sea was limited! We found that this was true of most of New Zealand, there were many scenic lookouts, but they were, or...

This was a brilliant stop for us. Although more expensive than some motels we have stayed in Hydrangea Cottage was a superb location with amazing facilities. We took Rata cottage which was on the first floor tucked away amongst the hydrangeas. It was beautiful. Within 5 minutes we were walking on a virtually deserted beach. Do shop before arriving as...

Very happy with this choice. Bring your own food supplies, local Tavern worse food we've encounted on our trip so far. Lovely cottage, beautiful outlook over the ocean. Nice gardens in private setting. Karen lovely, cottage heated on arrival. Everything close by but difficult with towns topography to walk around area. Would stay again.

we only had one night and would love to have stayed longer (and undertaken a horse trek which is a business attached to the cottages). cottages with sea views were booked. Our cottage was set back amongst the trees. It was very quiet and perfect for the hot day we were there (could possibly be a bit on the dark... More

Only one night of our 2 week touring holiday of New Zealand was unplanned - the west coast of the South Island. Arriving - somewhat harried - after sunset and armed with a recommendation from our travel guide, we sought out Hydrangea Cottages in the dark. And, once we made our discovery, we were over the moon with the welcome... More
