The St. James was our first stay after landing in NZ. We couldn't have picked a better place to begin our vacation! We were there for 4 nights and each day started with a delicious breakfast. Great variety including tasty homemade treats and fruit from Margaret's trees.

Very nicely appointed bedrooms.
Hi there Rebel thank you for contacting me re staying at St James in 2015 ...you will absolutely love the Tranzalpine. It is quite an amazing experience. It is no problem to leave your luggage here when you take the overnight excursion, and taxis run between St James and the railway station and meet every train. Unfortunately I am unable to pick you up from the airport, however you can book shuttles online, or taxis are there all times of the night and day. We are only 2.8 kms from the airport and relatively inexpensive. I would be very happy to run you to the camper van depot on Monday morning I do hope this helps with your travel planning kind regards Margaret St James
