Trelawn Place
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed November 13, 2007

We have just completed a 3-night stay at this wonderful B&B. The scenery is just spectacular as are the grounds with beautiful garden landscaping throughout the property. The site overlooks the Shotover river from a high bluff affording a very beautiful photo opportunity (just one from many focal points within the grounds). A hot tub is perfectly situated to allow users to view the river/mountains from on high. We are from the Philadelphia, PA USA area and would heartily recommend Trelawn Place to anyone looking for a delightful getaway in a close-to-perfect location (it may be of interst to note that The Lord of the RIngs trilogy was filmed in this region).
The city of Queenstown is a 15-20 minute drive away allowing access to a myriad of tour companies throughout the area including a very nice three-hour steamship lake cruise on Lake Wakatipu to the high farm country for tea and a tour of the farm and, of course, the famous and exciting jet boat trip on the Shotover River is another option.
Michael and Neri, our host and hostess were very accommodating and helpful in arranging things to do and places to dine in the area. They attended to our every need and couldn't have been nicer in detailing their property and other points of interest. From a woman's point of view, the rooms are charming and well appointed. Our bath had a fabulous tub, separate shower and vanity. The flowers in bloom and landscaping rival any flower show, in fact, while we were here, a Garden Club visited for tea. But best of all welcomes was the fun we had with the friendly critters - they greeted us properly and kept us well supplied with affection.
All in all, beautiful photos and memories to last a lifetime.
I would love to send photos with these comments, but will have to wait to send some when I get back home.

Had a wonderful 2 nights stay here as part of my honeymoon and would loved to have stayed longer. We stayed in the cottage (very cosy when the woodstove is on) and the hosts were very welcoming, including the cats and dogs! Such a peaceful & beautiful location yet such a short distance from the centre of Queenstown. I'm looking forward to my next visit one day.

If you want a romantic getaway or just a cosy place to stay in near Queenstown...this is the perfect place to stay. We stay in the apartment. It was a big lovely room with your own fire stove and with beautiful view over the mountain. The owners Nery and Michael were VERY nice and helpful and their breakfast was excellent. In the big garden they have a big jacuzzi with a delightful view. This B&B is a MUST. Please don´t stay in queenstown...go here instead.

Absolutely stunning location perched above the Shotover River, a spa bath on the edge of the gorge, fantastic gardens. We stayed in the separate little cottage and loved it. Friendly owners who share breakfast with you, and sort out bookings for local trips. Avoid Queenstown, stay here!

Trelawn Place is unique. It is just outside Queenstown and overlooks the Shotover River. The gardens are magnificent and very tranquil.

Although it is a few kilometers from Queenstown it is very easy to get a taxi if you prefer not to drive into town. Taxi fares are very reasonable.

The accommodation is very well appointed and extremely comfortable.

Arrowtown with its preserved old buildings is a few kilometers in the opposite direction and is in contrast to the vibrant and busy atmosphere of Queenstown.

There is a very warm welcome at Trelawn Place and the extensive garden is there to be enjoyed by all.

Dear Nery and Michael,
You will probably not remember me, but I was married at Trelawn Place in February 2002, and my husband Ben and I stayed for a couple of nights after the wedding as well.
The reason for my e-mail is that I was just looking through the latest copy of NZ House and Garden, and was pleasantly surprised to see and article on Trelawn Place. It certainly brought back some wonderful memories of my wedding and the lovely surroundings for me. The article is a brilliant representation of your venue, however there is nothing quite like arriving and seeing it for yourself, which pictures will never be able to substitute.
Congratulations on a lovely article in the magazine. Next time we manage to get a break long enough to escape to Queenstown, we would love to book a night or two at your B&B again.
Warmest regards,
Tracey Moulton

My Wife Cheryl and I have stayed at numerous B&B throughout the world during my travels and Trelawn Place "by far" was the absolute best. The spectacular setting on a high bluff over looking the Shotover River was magnificent. Our room and ajointing bathroom area was everything we could hope for. The landscaping of the grounds and flowers off the terrace out front were simply gorgous. Breakfast each morning was terrific and Michael & Nery your host will bend over backwards to make your stay in the Queenstown area as enjoyable as possible. Our only hope is that we can return some day !!
