The place is beautifully located overlookiing the Shotover river and if you have a car (and most people who stay there do), you are very central to all the sites. We have stayed at the Cherry tree cottage which has all the things you could hope for including a spa bath, DVD player for the rainy afternoons (we had a few) and a fireplace. At breakfast on the deck overlooking the speedboats on the river below we were accompanied by the two resident dogs and a cat who felt she owned the place. It was a very beautiful and convenient base.
One suggestion is that the windows should have flyscreens - without them you face the choice of being eaten alive by mosquitos or leaving the place with no ventilation. The latter creates a musty smell which is not that appealing and gives the cottage a bit of a dated feel. The kitchen utensils could also be updated to change the feel of the place to a more up market level befitting the price. Finally, we were rather amused that the beautiful garden next to the cottage is actually a pet cemetery but some guests may find that a little spooky.
