We stayed 1 night at the lake house in Glenorchy. Glenorchy is a great option to stay at if you want to get away from the noise of Queenstown but still have access to all the natural beauty of the area. We went hiking on the Routeburn track 1 day as well as drove around the area. The Lake house...

We stayed in the King En Suite, and what a spectacular find! We were very lucky in that we were the only guests for the two nights we were there, so we had the added benefit of having the common house to ourselves but even if we'd had to share, the stay would have been just as incredible. The inclusions...

My husband and I only stayed for one night but that is because we couldn't get a booking for the other nights of our stay. The Lakehouse is very comfortable and clean. It is in a great location and very quiet at night. We were provided with plenty of fresh and delicious food for breakfast plus free coffee in the...

This is our second stay but the first to use the whole house. It was very comfortable, had all the amenities we needed apart from the laundry - which was a little inconvenient with a 2 year old but they gave us a some flexibility. We coped well with the 24 hour power outage! Lovely owners who were there if...

I fell in love with this place as soon as we arrived. The views of the snow capped mountains were breathtaking and the little house was super cute. When we walked in the door (we arrived after hours and they left it open for us) we were greeted with lovely slices and a letter asking us to call and let...

It is a perfect location for exploring the area. The house is stunning. The breakfast what they serve in advange is delicious. The carrotcake for afternoontea is the best ever. Only dissapointing when we went to kinloch lodge for dinner. Overcooked salmon and 20%extra surcharge for guest aswell, crazy.

I booked this house for a two nights when my parents were in the country visiting. It was one of the highlights of their visit for all three of us. The town itself is just lovely. It is quiet, quaint, and situated such that there are breathtaking views no matter where you turn your head. The staff at the Trading...

Whilst this is advertised as a b&b, it is really just a house where each room can be rented out independently. Or you can rent the whole house. The house sits alongside the local store and cafe owned by the same people. Breakfast supplies are provided... but you cook this yourself and clean up yourself. Breakfast provisions are refreshed each...

Hi Thomas Thank you for your review. It is very thorough and considered and we really appreciate your feedback. What I can take from this that we can change now, is asking our team to be a little more considerate when servicing and replenishing the house and also preparing for our next guests. Please accept my apologies for the intrusion...

Friend and I stayed at this lovely place for 3n and it was amazing. All the amenities were top notch - tv, DVD, skytv, spacious bathroom, kitchen with full utensils and basic condiments, and a SPA tub (which is totally unbelievable).
