We stayed only one night on our road trip. Hosts were very welcoming and extremely helpful. Our family of 6 were all very comfortable and well fed. Short walk thru the bush to the Lake so well situated. Thanks for our stay and we do recommend

Enjoyed a wonderful night's sleep before embarking on our cycle trip over the Rainbow Trail to Hanmer Springs. The hearty breakfast lasted us well into the day. Best coffee in town. Will stay there again next visit. Friendly owners full of local knowledge of the area.

This a nice B&B in a remote location. The room & breakfast were good, but the evening meal is not recommended. $45 each for a largely defrosted frozen dinner without starter is not good value. The hosts were friendly, but the atmosphere was a bit claustrophobic.

the house was very comfortable and the owners were extremely friendly; plus the food was great! we stayed in the Tui Room, at the top of the house, and it was a sonic delight. there are numerous windows and the birds in that part of the country are numerous and vocal, such a treat!

Our party of five, including a 10 month old baby, thoroughly enjoyed our stay at St Arnaud house and the company of Margery and Russell. We felt warmly welcomed into their home, and they went out of their way to make sure we had everything we needed, including toys and a home made meal for our little one. Marjery's cooking... More

Russell and Margery & their furry friends were extremely friendly and welcoming. They were able to recommend various walks and activities to do around Nelson Lakes and were quite informative when quizzed about the wildlife around NZ and the area specifically. The home cooked meal was exactly what my wife and I needed after several negative dining experiences travelling around... More

We had a weekend of skiing at Rainbow and were warmly welcomed by Russel and Margery at their very homey B&B just a few minutes from the main street of St Arnaud and just next to the lake. The rooms are first rate and absolutely quiet - the breakfast was excellent -- and you couldn't ask for more friendly hosts.... More
