Reviewed February 9, 2012

We stayed with Gay and Arch for two nights and can't say enough about the quality of the experience. Gay is an outstanding hostess. She is helpful and informed, and there is no detail too small to receive attention. Our room was spacious and beautifully appointed. The view from our bedroom and sitting area was magnificent. And the breakfasts! Anything your heart desires, wonderfully and generously on offer.

Tell your friends and make this a must stop.

I thank you Mr C and Mrs C for your very kind words. It was such a pleasure having you both to stay for the 6th time. Wow you have followed us around the country to all our B&B's and each time we see you, I swear you both get younger, I wonder what your secret is ? I just pray you keep on, keeping on for many many years to come, maybe we can set a record. We do look forward already, to your next visit to our wonderful Country, what amazing ambassadors you are for us Kiwi's. Take care of each other and continue to love as you do.
Our, sincere love, from both Arch and myself.

We stayed here on the recommendation of the owners of Arrowtown Lodge. Like everything else they recommended, they were spot on.

The owners were lovely and the room was top notch. We didnt intend on staying the night in Riverton, and when we called to check availability for that night the owners were out of town, about an hour away. Without asking, they cancelled their plans and came back to meet us. How's that for service?!

Would absolutely stay again.

It was great and relaxing place to stay. Rooms were large, but cozy with beautiful view over the ocean and lush greens. Nice touches everywhere like excellent cookies and snacks comfy covers and robes, and etc. Gay was great host, excellent advices on restaurant and traveling tips. I think we adjust out trip based on her recommendations. Also she did us really great and extraordinary breakfast and gave us excellent sandwiches for our picnic on day trip. We were very impressed and wish we could stay and relax a little bit more.
Beach house café bar was excellent choice for dinner. We were impressed with excellent quality of food and creativity, as well as wine list!

Such a lovely and welcoming place to stay in extremely comfortable and beautiful rooms, and Gay's breakfast was out of this world! A stunning location too, looking out onto the sea and up to the mountains in the distance. Great for the nearby More's scenic reserve walk too, and Gay's recommendations for dinner were fabulous too. So many extra touches too, so thoughtful! Thank you Gay and Arch for your hospitality, Si, Ben and all the family.

In organising our trip around New Zealand, I had many B&B's to look at and decide which looked the best for the budget we were on. At the same time we also wanted to see the country and enjoy what it had to offer. We came across the Riverton B&B and we were not disappointed. Gay was extremely friendly and very welcoming on our arrival and could not do enough for us. She even moved us into the better room at no extra cost to us. My partner was overwhelmed by the items that were stocked in the en-suite bathroom. Short of a Pandemic, most ailments could have been cured by what was there!

Her travel recommendations were excellent and the picnic bag she packed for us meant we did not starve at all on our journey to Doubtful Sound which was her recommendation,

We had a wonderful time staying with Gay and her husband Arch and we would thoroughly recommend anyone who is passing through Riverton, to stop and stay a day or two at Gay's place. A great stay and if we get back to New Zealand we will surely try and make our way back there. Thank you Gay and Arch for your hospitality.

Room Tip: All rooms are great! There are only 2!

Hi Alan and Kathy, I am sorry I didn't get notified about your review until one of my guests mentioned it, so am sorry I haven't replied sooner.
You were both a delight to have to stay at our home, we did enjoy your company so much, and so happy about how you wanted to explore our area, it makes our hearts warm when guests enjoy our location.
Your local pub you ate at, are missing you heaps. I think RWC should be held every year in New Zealand, don't you?
Stay well and happy and you have a great trip home Kathy.
Thank you for choosing our place to stay, look forward to your next visit.
Kindest regards

We chose this B & B from Trip Advisor reviewers and it certainly lived up to expectations.
We like Riverton this time of year and decided to go for the weekend before getting on with the Rugby World Cup Celebrations.The accommodation is second to none, the view from the room at sunrise is something else. Gay`s fruit platter is just beautiful,. Gay and Archie are fantastic welcoming hosts. We only stayed one night but felt like we had known them for much longer. We will certainly be back in the summer after Wales have won the Rugby World cup!! See you both soon Pauline and Chris xx

Thank you Pauline and Chris, for your kind words, it was such a pleasure having you to stay, I am sure our meeting was predestined, as you say, we feel like friends already, so do look forward to your return visit.
I do hope your trips are going well, and still wondering Chris, if we will see you "streaking" when the Walsh win the RWC!! I am sure you and your friends are having a ball, as I think the rest of the visitors to our shores are also having. It has been so exciting hosting so many visitors to our wonderful country. Can only hope they will all return again. We have been so lucky to have had Brits, and Argentinians as well, so all very exciting.
Take care and travel safely.
Kindest regards

In the depths of a Southland winter we arrived from the tropics to find beautiful accommodation with many extras in a glorious location. I loved waking up to the sunrise across the river. Thank you Gay for helping make our family reunion so easy. I loved staying here and all your extra touches were so thoughtful. Wonderful restaurants close by too. Another undiscovered Southland treasure. Bev, Amanda and Tony.
