“Lovely Place, Great Breakfasts”
Reviewed February 15, 2014

We greatly enjoyed staying in this lovely cottage.
The room was well appointed and opened out to a pretty, lush garden.
The location is very close to a number of biking/walking trails - all of which are picturesque and show off New Zealand's nature at some of its best.
The breakfasts at Ferryman's are first class and the hosts - Bryan and Marie - are warm, friendly and good humored.
All in all a great place to stay. Highly recommended.

Our travel agent booked this for us so we did not knot what to expect. We loved our stay. It was just a beautiful place and we really felt at home. The owners gave us directions and suggestions, not to mention the best breakfast we have had in New Zealand.

We spent a night at this cottage. The couple that runs this is very warm and friendly. They have a wonderful home in Albert town. A short drive from the lake. We had the best breakfast which was cooked by the host. Excellent scrambled eggs with bacon and fresh fruit with yogurt with a choice of cereal. The biggest breakfast I've had on my trip.

Though not expected we were instantly made welcome and our night here was one of the best.
Ferryman's Cottage is delightful. The bedroom and ensuite were both very comfortable and spacious. Breakfast was delicious and plentiful and served in a lovely room overlooking the garden.
We enjoyed a good meal in the local inn, which was within walking distance and the people very friendly.
Marie and Bryan were fantastic; interesting, warm, humerous and great fun. Wish we could have stayed longer.

Immediately we arrived at Ferryman's Cottage, we were smitten. Very pretty cottage with lovely accommodation to match. Marie and Bryan our hosts could not have been more pleasant and the breakfasts came top of the class for us in New Zealand. The location of the cottage was perfect and, with Marie and Bryan's helpful advice of what to see and do, we thoroughly enjoyed every minute of the time spent at Ferryman's.

I had not read the reviews before booking so I was pleasantly surprised by the house and even more by the hosts and the food they offer.
Pure luxury, much appreciated.
Albert town looked rather boring upon arrival but turned out to offer all we needed : quiet walk along the river and easy access to the splendid Rob Roy Glacier track.
We stayed for three nights and we can recommend you to do the same or even stay longer.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Ferrymans Cottage, our hosts were a delightful couple, the accommodation was first class and in a most picturesque garden setting.
What added to the attractiveness of the cottage was learning of its history, as the name indicates, it was one of the original buildings of the area.
we can highly recommend a few days stay at The Ferrymans Cottage
