Our booking was helpfully transferred here after our original accommodation closed due to illness. However, I don’t think that we couldn’t have chosen a better place. Tucked up a sloping drive around 5 minutes’ walk from central Akaroa, Wilderness House is a large old mansion, run by a delightful couple.
Our room was upstairs, with a small but practical balcony looking into the trees. The bed was extremely comfortable, the wi-fi worked well and the room had pretty much everything needed.
We had to miss the early evening drinks due to a booking at The Little Bistro (expensive, but delicious), but the excellent breakfast indicated what we might have missed. The cooked dish in particular was top restaurant quality and the chat around the breakfast table most interesting.
