We were working or way up the west coat of NZ to PIcton, and Hydangea Cottage was our stop along the way. My only regret is we only stayed one night. Our cottage was on a bluff overlooking the ocean (some have no view). It was beautifully decorated, comfortable, and very clean. There was a soaking tub outside for an...

The location is great and they have very clean comfy beds. The decor is dated and felt like it could do with an update. I lost a precious necklace there which wasn't found but the owner responded quickly to my query. All in all good value. For money great location for the pancake rocks and would stay again.

We had a lovely stay at Hydrangea Cottages -- the hosts were warm, welcoming, and flexible; and the room itself was really beautifully appointed and set into the hill with palm trees and hydrangea bushes surrounding it. And a view of the ocean! Couldn't have been more conveniently located or romantic. Highly recommend!

We stopped in Punaikaki as a stopover on our way from Abel Tasman to Franz Josef. The cottages are just passed the visitor centre for the pancake rocks off the main road. Very large two bedroom unit (Nikau cottage) with beautiful views over the sea. Large deck with bbq and seating. Unfortunately it was windy and we didn't get chance...

My husband and I stayed here two nights and it was beautiful. The cottages here are ornate with hardwood floors, very quaint and romantic. The cottage we stayed in had a fully equipped kitchenette, burners included, and also had a large outside soaking tub. Within walking distance of the blowholes and pancake rocks. Also had great working wifi. I highly...

We rented the largest of the cottages for a family Christmas - and it was brilliant. Spacious and clean with a deck surrounding looking out at the sea. It's a short walk up to the pancake rocks and a coffee shop and bar. The kitchen is amazing and comfortably seated 12 of us round the table. The fire pit was...

We stayed one night on our way from queenstown to Blenheim and it was amazing. Karen, the owner was so accommodating as we were arriving late. The cottage had everything we needed and a very comfy bed. The pancake rocks were truly spectacular and only 5 mins away and the drive was truly awesome. Thanks again x
