We were a tad disappointed with our two bedroom apartment. It was very basic and the noise from the apartment above us in the evening was not nice. Sorry Akaroa Village Inn we will not be staying with you again.

Ideally positioned on the bay frontage... Our apartment was a 2BR facing the wharf. Rooms were clean and comfortable except for a couple of aspects such as no AC. We arrived on a hot day and couldn't cool the BR's down which made for a very sticky first night (even with a the windows open). Whilst the Internet is free...

We needed an overnight stay somewhere before the rigours of work intrudes on our lives again. Very relaxing. Kerrie and Shane were awesome. Can't speak highly enough of them. EVen if they are Aussies. ;) Highly recommended. Will return soon.

Excellent facilities and location - lovely modern units with ample furnishings and great cooking facilities. Very well equipped rooms could not have been better, we wanted for nothing. Helpful and friendly staff. Single serve breakfast cereals, extra milk and fruit etc., available in reception.

I was so impressed by the Village Inn! The apartment had a stunning view of the waterfront and was equally stunning inside with great decoration and comforts. Our room had a nice terrace outside overlooking Akaroa where you could read, BBQ and enjoy meals in the sun. The location was perfectly situated in town so you could walk to all...

Popped in to the little General store at the front of the Inn grab some lunch to take to the waterfront. Met with a fine selection of local foods and delicacies from freshly baked bread, handmade chocolates, pies and more. The manager of the inn and store was super friendly, full of advice on the best scenic route back into...

To me, the name suggests a quaint "inn" with dark wood and old finishes, however nothing could be further from the truth. We were lucky to stay in room 69 which was elegantly decorated with French inspiration and a divinely comfortable four-poster king bed. A generous sized spa bath was a real treat. The room was overall quite large with...

Booked in rather last minute and very happy with our stay. Welcoming yet unobtrusive check in, upgrade, parking space, excellent location, super comfortable bed, and wonderfully hot shower. Keep on doing what you're doing. Would definitely stay again.

Akaroa Village Inn is opposite the main wharf and adjacent to nearby cafes. We stayed in a 2 bedroom unit. Very clean and tidy. Friendly staff. A trip on Akaroa Dolphin tours is worthwhile to see find out about the local history and see some local wildlife. The Akaroa cooking school is on site so if you want some local...
