Be sure you agree to a price beforehand and tell everyone in your party. My wife was told one price over the phone when we reserved a room with a shared bathroom, but I was charged a different price when I went to pay. The owners are friendly, but this place is somewhat expensive for the services they provide. The father (one of the owners) said he would come back to light the wood stove to keep us warm overnight, but he never came back. Very average in my opinion.

Self contained separate cottage on working sheep farm. Cozy and fairly sheltered from the winds that the albatross need for flight. Entire area is incredibly beautiful. Clean, good value, friendly owners. Good location for all Otago Peninsula sights including the Albatross Centere.

Our only complaint about this place is that we should have booked to stay longer! We stayed in the self-contained cottage and it was quaint and perfect. The cottage is homy with plenty of extras: toys if you have kids, reading material, suggestions for what to do, everything you'd need in the mini kitchen, and a cozy bedroom. The owners clearly love their little spot and everything is well attended to. The view from the cottage over the water is gorgeous.

stayed in the cottage, amazing value for money. the 2 bedrooms you have to walk through 1 to get to the main bedroom. fairly cold but just about bearable. views overlooking port chalmers and the water. owner was really friendly, good location for lanarch castle, royal albatross centre and penguin place, close to dunedin too.

My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights and really didn't want to leave. The cottage is separate from the lodge and has great views and its own little deck. We loved the ability to be 'green' during our stay with recycling and composting available. I was really worried when I found out we were booked at a 'backpackers', but the cottage is very private and self-contained.

Room Tip: Rent the cottage
