“An enjoyable stay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 April 2012

Comfortable room if slightly on the small side. The location of the fridge in the wardrobe meant hanging space was very limited. Good shower facilities. Lovely breakfasts and a wonderful evening meal with Merle and Cliffe on our arrival. Merle was keen to help and insisted on phoning to check our tour coach to Milford was going to pick us up on time! Within easy walking distance of the town and lake.

Room Tip: I should think they are all of similar standard - which is good

We had an extremely enjoyable stay with Merle and Cliff and found them to be great hosts.Our room was very comfortable with easy access via the back door.Having wi.fi was important enabling us to keep in contact with the family.The proximity to the town was great,being only 5 minutes from the restaurants and shops.It was convenient being able to book tours through them.The best thing however was the brilliant breakfasts we had...the best throughout our 16 day holiday.We would highly recommend this place to friends and family.Thanks Merle for your advice and generosity.

We stayed here for two nights. Our room was very comfortable, though the shower was very low and not powerful. Breakfasts were yummy and our hosts made us feel welcome. The location was quiet, and just five minutes walk from the centre of the village and some nice restaurants.

We were 2 couples and loved the friendly B&B welcome from the owners Merle & Cliff. The bedrooms had private bath & toilet facilities and they were lovely & clean. Breakfast was a choice of continental or cooked. Great location, only 1 block from the main shopping area and a 5 minute walk to the lake. I would recommend this B&B to any of my family or friends

The House of Wood B & B is a great accommodation in a convenient location. Hosts Meryl and Cliff are welcoming and fun to chat with. The rooms are clean and well appointed, and the breakfast is very special.

Room Tip: The room on the main floor on the right is spacious and bright.

The House of Wood is a beautiful place -- with an excellent location -- close to everything. We loved our room and our hosts. Homemade jellies and breads! Yummy!!! Reasonably priced. Anyone that we know traveling to New Zealand we will definitely send to House of Wood. Enjoy.
