Foveaux Hotel
Ranked #3 of 5 Bluff B&B and Inns
Reviewed December 4, 2013

We stayed here for 1 night on our way to Stewart Island. The hotel was built in 1937 and the current owner, Sherry, has done it up and opened it as a hotel 8 months ago. Our room was clean with an en suite, shower and toilet. We had dinner in the restaurant, the food was good and freshly cooked. Breakfast was the best we've had in NZ, with freshly squeezed orange juice. There is off road parking at the back of the hotel.
Sherry also let us park our car there while we were in Stewart Island.

Hotel exuded charm and character. Rooms were very comfortable and clean. Cherie (and Sue - chef) made us feel very welcome and we definetly felt we made the best decision on what was available in Bluff. Hotel is directly oppostie ferry terminal to Stewart Island and offered every amenity we could wish for . ie great hospitality, good food, and clean bathrooms. The guest lounge room upstairs had tea/coffee etc, plasma t.v. The bathroom (shared) had a bath as well as showers. All very accommodationg. Well done Cherie!

The Foveaux Hotel B&B was a great choice for our night in Bluff. The staff Theresa, Sue and Cherie were wonderful. We were made most welcome, offered every assistance to ensure our stay was top shelf and couldn't ask for more personal service.

Sue made up some wonderful meals for Dinner and breakfast was more than sufficient and tasty to sustain us for the day ahead. mmmmm the Seafood Chowder was excellent.

The fires were lit, the bar open and the atmosphere was most welcoming. No one available to play the grand piano (well maybe my rendition of chop sticks, however that didn't seem appropriate), some great paintings on the walls and available for sale. Some are astounding water colours done by Sue Dixon, the cook at the Hotel.

All requests were met expeditiously and with brilliant smiles.

Great stay, great staff, really tried hard to make our stay as good as possible and it was a really fun stay, very homely and warm with the two fires down stairs and the grand piano. Dinner was a very home style cooked meal and done in a very timely fashion.
