We are visiting New Zealand from the UK and have been driving around south island. We tried the Mill House as we prefer heritage-style accommodation with some degree of local character.
Having read the comments below, we were a little wary of what we would find, but we were pleasantly surprised. The new owner has done a marvellous job of the renovations and our room was spacious and fresh with loads of light and a lovely outlook over the garden behind. The main entrance and restaurant area had some lovely artefacts and pictures of the original state of the mill, and Karen the owner was very happy to chat and explain where the original mill race had been and what the recent history of the building was.
There is a lovely garden area behind the main building, and we enjoyed walking down to the stream and listening to the native birds.
Thank you for a wonderful stay!
