Stayed here three nights. Not bad At all. Certainly no luxury French hotel but nevertheless a cheap and decent option smackI the middle of akaroa!!! Rooms are somewhat clean and the American lady who owns/runs the place is totally chill

Stayed at cottage facing garden. The place appeared run down and needs some upgrading. Furniture and electrical appliances were old. The bed cannot support our weight and sinks when we slept on it. The towels were old and we couldn't bring ourselves to use them. The kitchenette was small and we decided not to cook. There is no parking on...

We had our stay at Bon Accord end of December for 3 nights. The cottage is pretty much worn, one main light is down, and the whole is not too tidy. The cooking facility (oven, hotplate as well as pans and pots) had patina, and we completely refrained from cooking there. The location is ok, internet is free, and the...

Booked the accommodation 4 months in advance and had email confirmation. On arrival I was informed that there was no booking and in an indifferent manner by the owner. It was disappointing. Fortunately I found somewhere else and actually better.

We must have arrived on a bad day compared with other reviewers. Young girl in reception did not give us much info, just showed us to what we think was called The Cottage, at the rear of the premises at the edge of the garden. Room was spacious with small ensuite shower and small kitchen. Unfortunately only one ring of...

Due to limited availability in Akaroa we stayed at Bon Accord. However, I wouldn't have changed that in retrospect! Clean, friendly staff, nice kitchen, garden with a stream running past it, free bikes to use, free herbs from the herb garden, hammock, the list goes on. Stay here. Its good value and cozy. A little noisy in the mornings but...

Maybe the best hostel in my time in the New Zealand. A really quaint place, the Manager (I forget his name) was such a nice guy, really knowledgeable about the area, always greeted you with a smile and asked how things were going, truly excellent service. The room (we stayed in a double) was large and really well kept, and...

Stayed one night in a double without bathroom for 69 dollars. Centrally located. Big room, bit musty smelling. Bathroom and toilet could do with renovating - paint peeling off wall, tired looking shower. Smallish kitchen, cooking dinner at the same time as other people could be cramped. Staff didn't tell us anything about the town (first time someone hasn't in...
