We had no intention of staying in St Arnaud when we left Picton but the road to Nelson was cut off by a major accident, so we headed south, so glad we did. St Arnaud is beautiful and the Alpine Lodge was a great place to stay, the staff were friendly and helpful and we had a great meal in the restaurant it made the start to our South Island adventure very pleasant. The walks around the area are amazing, highly recommend a stay here. Only negative (not for me but for teenage daughters) is the wifi, slow and unreliable, I thought that was a good thing.
