We stayed at the cottages for two nights in October while travelling with our young boys around New Zealand. I had high expectations of this place and was only party disappointed. The cottages are just north fo the township, which does not say much, as the township is small. The views from the cottages are fabulous, with the glacier in the distance and a fresh glacial stream running along the front of the property. We had a great time with our kids down in the river bed. The playground is a trampoline and swing, nothing much, but certainly kept the kids amused. The cottages are clean, quite spacious. Some of the furnishings were abit dated, but functional. It is hard to assess value in realtion to the cottages, nothing on the west coast of New Zealand is cheap. We did, at times, have trouble locating our hostess Vanessa, who was running her property on which the cottages were situated. Overall, our stay was very comfortable and pleasant.
