During our two week tour of the South Island we met a string of really friendly kind hearted people. There was the farmer on the goat track when our SatNav malfunctioned, there was a guy in the internet cafe who stayed open after closing time, a couple of helpful staff at the library, the lady at the Courier newspaper who...

We stopped at the Bluff for a night on our way to Stewart Island. What a nice surprize! Our room was large and quite luxurious with stunning views and a perfect little patio to enjoy the sunset. Our hostess was gracious and welcoming, she recommended places to visit in the area and dining options. Note this is a nice luxurious... More

Booked into Bluff Ocean Vista for one night and had one of the units at the back. Very clean, well maintained and spacious. Lisa was determined to give us as much information about Bluff as she could and her advice was spot on. Only being 50 metres from the sea makes this location great to catch the comings and goings...

We (3 adulds & 2 kids) stayed for a night in Lisa's house in August 2013. Lisa bent over backwards to make sure we were comfortable and happy. As a first timer for B & B's our experience could not have be better. We had the entire top floor to ourselves, everything was very clean and serviceable and the view... More

This was a great stay at a B & B with the host being so friendly, motherly and accommodating. She was well informed about the area and gave friendly advice as to where to go and what to do. The facility was very clean and quite quaint.

The host was just too funny and welcoming! What a wonderful introduction to Bluff! We booked the studio apartment but she offered the guest house as we have a 12 month old. It was lovely and clean and had been modernized beautifully. It was very warm and had lovely views from the lovely little balcony and dining area. What an... More

We had intended to stay in Invercargill but as everything was full we ended up in Bluff for 3 nights. When we booked the guest house we had no idea we would be getting a whole house all to ourselves. It's an old style villa in a residential street around the corner from the main accommodation. The fittings are all... More
