We travelled from the West Coast and were late. We rang the Chalet from one hour away and said we needed a bed - arriving around 10pm. The host said he would stay up for us. We arrived at 10pm to a snowy Arthurs Pass village. The host had kept the cosy bar with open fire and pool table open especially for us. He showed us to our room. The room was clean and warm. It had a little balcony over looking the pretty village. We joined the host for a drink along with some locals. The wine was great and the atmosphere very friendly. In the morning we made tea in the room and there was fresh milk in the fridge down the hall. The bathroom was cold and the hot water pressure was low, so shower was a bit of an issue being luke warm!
That said we had a good sleep and will definitely be using this as a future stop over.
