We stayed for the first two nights of our trip at Menteith House and what a wonderful start to our New Zealand trip it was! Planted in the middle of a picturesque country setting with animated lamas to boot, Menteith House was such a nice stay we felt quite wistful leaving! Faye and Steven were so warm, welcoming and friendly and made it their priority to make us feel comfortable in their home. The breakfasts provided were nutritious and home cooked and they took extra time to provide us with a variety of fresh juice options to please our taste buds. Our bedroom was very presentable and was equipped with a lovely ensuite bathroom, including a very good shower. Faye and Steven managed to be very professional, while also providing a personal touch that was special and memorable. We would recommend Menteith Country House without hesitation and hope to go back there again one day ourselves!
