This Bed and Breakfast was in a quiet residential neighborhood, less than a 5 minute drive from the “center” of town. The hosts Chris and Colin were very friendly, knowledgeable and made my wife and I feel very welcomed. They seemed to genuinely enjoy having us as guests. We even had a special request which they accommodated very willingly.
Colin designed the house himself, and it was well-suited to serve as a B&B. The guest units were on one side, with a separate stair, patio, breakfast room, and bathrooms. Such an arrangement allowed us to exit/enter without disturbing our hosts, and gave us the sense of our privacy and own space, despite being in their house. The house itself was very bright, rustic and warm with beautiful views to the lake and mountains. Free Wi-fi was also provided which was greatly appreciated!
Chris prepared a delicious breakfast including cereals, freshly-baked bread, homemade yogurt and fresh fruits. After a few days in motels, it was certainly relaxing and refreshing to enjoy a leisurely breakfast in our private dining room while taking in the view.
The house, hosts and breakfast all combined to make this our favorite stay during our 2-week trip in New Zealand. We would recommend Glacier Rock to anyone who enjoys the more personable experience of a B&B. Thanks again Chris and Colin!
