We stayed at acheron for 1 night early this month on our way to the overnight cruise on doubtful sound. What attracted me to acheron was its location on a farm and open spaces. The cottage was spacious and clean. What impressed us was how well zeb and beth have thought through the requirements of guests...our 20 month old daughter was instantly hooked onto the toys and educational books in the basket..it was a massive relief for us.
the kitchen was well equipped, cutlery was high quality. The bed was comfy and heating systems worked. The cottage felt really new. We'd have loved to stay another night here, but had to carry on due to paucity of time. I'd strongly recommend this place over the lake facing motels.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The cottages are both fully self-contained, serviced and sit right on the edge of Fiordland National Park. We are only a 2 minute drive away from the picturesque township of Manapouri which sits on the shores of beautiful Lake Manapouri. Manapouri is complete with a store, Post Office, two cafes, a restaurant and hotel and is a great place to relax and enjoy one of New Zealand's most spectacular lakes. ... more less
