This is the perfect place to unwind! We stayed in the B&B with a stunning view on Mt. Cook and hundreds of cattle grazing peacefully infront of our little apartment. Rooms are perfectly clean, tasteful and very well designed. The little terrace that comes with the room was the ideal place to enjoy a good glass of NZ wine at...

We all agreed that this was our favorite place to stay as we did our whirlwind tour of the South Island in 14 days. The rustic charm of the old farmhouse, the wood fire (well stocked with wood), the comfortable beds, great shower, beautiful views and friendly hosts made us feel very at home.

We stayed at the cabin and our room was facing the Mt Cook. We loved waking up every morning to such a beautiful view. The facilities in the cabin were just what We needed. Perfect to host a couple or a family of four .The washing machine was a plus, the deck was the best place for breakfast in the...

We stayed in the Bed and Breakfast Lodge for 2 nights. On arrival, I had forgotten that I had booked the lodge, rather than a self contained cottage and was initially disapointed. However, after a few hours, I realised that it was actually quite a nice option. You share a common room with guests from the other two rooms (during...

We arrived on a cold wet evening and found the cosy glow of various buildings so welcoming. In true kiwi fashion we were able let to ourselves in and get settled. Everything was there for us to warm up with and light a fire. Provided all towels , bedding and fabulous toiletries! None of that mattered compared to the breathtaking...

This was the first stop on a 3-week trip to the South Island. Great place to stay, and the weather offered phenomenal views of Mt. Cook and the nearby mountains. Sean and Nicola were great, and offered many ideas on things to do in the area. Due to scheduling, we stayed one night in the original farmhouse, and two nights...

We stayed here in November 2011. All the other reviews have said it all and we can only reiterate them. Highlight of the stay apart from beautiful rooms and stunning view was the woodfired bath. Do do this when you stay here it's only $25nz or £12 and it's areally fun experience. The bath stays warm for hours and you...

We stayed in the original farmhouse for our honeymoon with our 10 month old baby. Stunning views from all cottages and great value for money. An excellent base for exploring the Mt Cook region, with the township of Twizel not far for groceries or Thai takeaway. We arrived on a freezing and blustery evening but it did not take long...

We stayed in a very large comfortable room (king room) in the B&B lodge, it was warm and clean. Sean and Nicola are very friendly, breakfasts were delicious. Laundry facilites are available in the lodge for guest use. All rooms and the large lounge have amazing views out over the farm and distant mountains, including Mt Cook when the weather...
