Set just on the outskirts of the Manapouri township, this wonderful cottage (one of two) provides a wonderful rural retreat after a day of extensive sightseeing (which is a must for this area). A modern cottage with all the amenities one would desire. There were two spacious bedrooms, the main containing a large bed which regrettably was a little softer than desirable. A wonderful large open plan living area contained a great dining table from which to work (when forced to do so), but a little let down by a sofa that was a little less comfortable to sit on for any period of time than its appearance would indicate. Did also have a great kitchen and very spacious bathroom. Was warmly greeted by the owner upon arrival, who assured us that she would be available at very short notice at any time should the occasion necessitate this (and she was when a query was made regards the operation of the television). Exceptional value for a prime rural location, that offered peaceful evenings.…
We really enjoyed our overnight stay prior to our overnight cruise on Doubtful sound. Full self contained with more than we needed. 100% clean and very comfortable. Jo met us on arrival and was extreemly friendly and helpfu;. Do yourself a favour and don't think twice about staying here. Would definately stay here again :)
Modern, clean, warm, comfortable and in a lovely rural setting. Everything you need for your trip to one of the most beautiful places on earth. This combined with great service and communication makes Archeron Cottages a place we would gladly return to when we visit this area again.
The cottage is well setup. Everything you need. Nice views outside. Very close to the dock for the Doubtful Sound trips. Even has a BBQ outside that works on propane. Washer and dryer. Recommend high quality stay.
We stayed one night before our overnight doubtful sound cruise and loved everything about the cottage. I wish we had come from Queenstown sooner and stayed here longer. The cottage is spotlessly clean, the bed is comfortable with fresh pillows, sheets, everything is immaculate. We loved the peaceful, relaxed setting and all of the thoughtful touches, even laundry powder to wash your cloths! We made a great grilled salmon dinner on the barbeque. SO much better that having to eat out. Thank you so much Jo for letting us stay.
