“More like staying with friends”
Reviewed 6 December 2013

We stayed just one night and really enjoyed the stay. The house is in a lovely spot - very quiet and peaceful. We had a warm welcome from Margery and Russell. Food was lovely and we really enjoyed our chats with our hosts. Would not hesitate to recommend this B&B.

We had a great stay at St. Arnoud b&b. Friendly hosts, delicious homecooked meal, cosy room with view on the garden. Clean room, good beds. The hosts will sit and eat with you, kind and sociale people.

Margery and Russell both enjoy the company of our guests to St Arnaud house, we have found that having meals or a glass of local Nelson or Marlborough wine with our guests makes for a relaxing enjoyable evening.

What a find! We stayed with Margery and Russell for 2 nights and had a wonderful time. They have a secluded and beautiful spot amongst native Beech - a marvelous setting for a very inviting and comfortable home. Margery and Russell were superb hosts...we really enjoyed our lengthy chats over Margery's outstanding home cooking and Russell's excellent barista-quality coffee! The room was well appointed and the bed was very comfy. Pug and Chilli the cats were very entertaining, as was Ruby the dog! Neither of us are used to living with pets but these little guys were delightful. On the first night we chose to dine at home...and the food (and company!) were so pleasant we did it again on night #2. Margery really is an excellent cook. Both hosts are unfailingly generous and kind.
Overall - we loved it. We would stay again in an instant. Heck, we'd even book a holiday around staying here it was so good! St Arnaud itself is a knockout. Beautiful walks, stunning forest... and Russell and Margery's house is the perfect place to unwind at the end of it all...share a glass of wine in front of the fire and a fine meal.
I would not hesitate to recommend this B&B...an absolute highlight of our holiday!

We enjoyed 2 nights here recently and had a pleasant experience with some highlights (as others have pointed out) including marg's breakfast, the best coffee we had in our two week trip around NZ, and a very comfortable bed. Will certainly recommend to friends and family and if we are in the area again will be staying here if we can. Thanks to both Russell and Marg for such a welcoming and enjoyable time.

Hopefully next time I'll catch some of those elusive kiwi trout!

Hi Richard, it was all our pleasure having you stay at our place, The Brown trout here can be elusive and can definitely test your skills and your patience sometimes.
There are some very good trouts ones to be had in the rivers and the lake, that make it very worthwhile for future trips to our beautiful area.
Look forward to meeting you and your family sometime in the future

Russell and Margery were wonderful, welcoming hosts. Their home is beautiful and comfortable and I cannot fault our stay here. Russell and Margery truly deserve the fabulous ratings they have here. The surroundings are fabulous and the food was perfect.

St Arnaud B&B is nicely tugged away behing the trees and with a wonderful garden full of flowers. The house is very cozy, made all of wood and with lots of personal touch,

We came with four kids and Margery and Russell took great care of us. The breakfast is excellent.

Room Tip: The two rooms we used were both very good. One had a much bigger bathroom so you may want to ask for...

Wonderful location and fabulous hospitality from hosts plus exquisite Burmese cats and dog! Our 2 night stay was way too short. Recommended as a base for lots of walking activities. Margery and Russell are very informative and also create a relaxed atmosphere by making you feel at home immediately on arrival. Highly recommended.

Room Tip: All rooms excellent.
