I can't remember what lead me here but should have checked out Tripadvisor before. It looks good on the photos but actually is a little tired and need of a renovation. Prob. you will find a better place on the peninsula.

Stayed here three nights. Not bad At all. Certainly no luxury French hotel but nevertheless a cheap and decent option smackI the middle of akaroa!!! Rooms are somewhat clean and the American lady who owns/runs the place is totally chill

Stayed at cottage facing garden. The place appeared run down and needs some upgrading. Furniture and electrical appliances were old. The bed cannot support our weight and sinks when we slept on it. The towels were old and we couldn't bring ourselves to use them. The kitchenette was small and we decided not to cook. There is no parking on site. We had to park across the street. Of all the accommodation we have in South Island, this is the worse.

We had our stay at Bon Accord end of December for 3 nights. The cottage is pretty much worn, one main light is down, and the whole is not too tidy. The cooking facility (oven, hotplate as well as pans and pots) had patina, and we completely refrained from cooking there. The location is ok, internet is free, and the nights are quiet. One stay overnight will be ok there, but our 3 nights were too much.

Booked the accommodation 4 months in advance and had email confirmation. On arrival I was informed that there was no booking and in an indifferent manner by the owner. It was disappointing. Fortunately I found somewhere else and actually better.

We booked the bus from Christchurh to Akaroa, just for a stay of 2 nights, the bus drop us right in front of the hostel, we were able to check in early, our 5-bed room attached with bath room, which is great and hardly found in other hostel. Room is big enough and the bed is pretty comfortable. Only cons is the garden hangout area is just right in front of our room, pretty noisy and disturbing in the day and night time. Overall it is one of the good choice for Akaroa,

We must have arrived on a bad day compared with other reviewers. Young girl in reception did not give us much info, just showed us to what we think was called The Cottage, at the rear of the premises at the edge of the garden. Room was spacious with small ensuite shower and small kitchen. Unfortunately only one ring of the two ring stove worked but we could also use the main kitchen. Our water heater was also shared by the outside shower/toilet and did not appear to work in the morning so had a bracing experience. Felt our facilities could do with a clean with the whole area needing a bit of a tidy up. No member of staff to speak to when we left (9.30am). Previous reviewer has accurately listed facilities, layout and available items. Not as good as some of the other hostels/backpackers that we stayed in. The long drive from Christchurch was worth it. Akaroa is a lovely area with beautiful lake views and a nice harbourside.
