It's very nice to find a relaxing place to enjoy some peace and quiet during a fairly hectic trip around the South Island. We had been constantly on the move for days when we came across Ribbonwood.
It was the best possible place to unwind, just far enough out of town to escape the tourist buzz surrounding Franz Josef village. Our host Jo, was a very welcoming and relaxed person, with a wealth of knowledge about the local activities as well as the flora and fauna.
Our room, the separate cottage, was decorated to a high and tasteful standard, and was exceptionally clean and tidy. We were able to sit out on the front deck during the evening and watch the sun set in the west with a glass of Pinot Noir.
We cannot recommend this B&B highly enough. We'll be back I'm sure.More
