One night stay, wish we could have stayed for more! Gentlemen at the counter was wonderful and friendly, attentive to detail. The cottages and grounds were wonderful. Ordered bottle of champagne, it was confirmed on arrival and icy cold. Very helpful with dinner recommendations. Highly recommend.

My sister and I booked a surprise night away for my Mum and chose this gorgeous location just out of Akaroa. The cottage was tucked away surrounded by garden and bird song. It was a sunny afternoon so we relaxed on the private deck, drinking our bubbles and it was pure bliss. The only down side was the fold out...

The grounds of this hotel were absolutely beautiful, lots of birds in the mornings. Not much can match the view of the bay from our family area...it was truly beautiful. The rooms were clean and kitchen well stocked. We stayed in the 3 bedroom and the upstairs shower did not seem to have enough water pressure for a teenager with...

Stayed 3 nights in the one bedroom Seaview cottage. The accommodation was great and the view fabulous. We had a bar b q on the deck they brought one up to us. The walk to town and back was a bit much we drove as the walk back is up a steep hill, but it's pretty close. Akatoavis a lovely...

Nestled into the hillside and with some perfect views of the harbour, the cottages are a good size, well-maintained and give plenty of quiet privacy. Some have better views than others, but all are good for a few days' tranquil relaxation. The staff are accommodating, helpful and friendly - and arranged a discount for a dolphin-spotting tour. It's up a...

We were totally enchanted with these cottages. They are not very modern but are well maintained and clean. We thought the homes were very charming and spacious. The views are amazing! The reception were very helpful in suggesting restaurants and tours.

Given the great reviews my expectations were high so I was slightly disappointed with the reality. The standards were not as high as other boutique brand hotels I have seen, the log burners are fake gas fires, the 1970s bathrooms need updating and the distance into town is further than it looks on a map and up a steep hill...

If it's a romantic getaway you are looking for, this is it. We arrived for a two night stay as part of my 60th birthday holiday around New Zealand to a wonderful welcome by manager Rick. We had a Seaview studio apartment with views of the harbour from the living area and secluded woodlands out the back. We decided to...

"Wow!" was the first reaction we had when approaching the properties after a long drive, the grounds are beautiful, the cottages well positioned, ours had an amazing view of the bay. The cottage was well equipped, welcoming and clean. The staff have an excellent knowledge of the area, and good advice on where to visit in Akaroa. Lovely to wake...

We stayed 2 nights here and it was divine. The staff were incredibly knowledgeable and helpful, the grounds are stunning with an amazing view over the harbour and the cottages are very comfortable and well equipped. It was lovely being just out of town, but only a short trip into town and all the great restaurants and activities. It was...
