This is a really excellent B&B and deserves its rave reviews. We had the main studio room and ensuite for 5 nights at end of January 2012. The room is very spacious, light and comfortable as well as being immaculate. The view from here is superb, through the garden, over meadows and between trees to a full view of the magnificent Avalanche glacier in the distance. The room opens to a large covered terrace and barbecue area with seating all for your private use and then in to the garden. The location is totally peaceful yet only 5 minutes walk to the lakefront. Trish and Davy were marvellous hosts - very friendly, knowlegeable and helpful - and nothing was too much for them. Trish's breakfasts and her continuous supply of muffins and biscuits were of an equally high standard. We had the added bonus of a guided tour on Davy's motor trike. This was an experience not to be missed- we learned so much and had great fun. Overall a really great start to our latest New Zealand holiday- and we'll certainly return to Avalanche.
