Solace Country House Bed and Breakfast
Ranked #2 of 16 Timaru B&B and Inns
Reviewed 4 August 2013

Nestled down into the gentle hillside slope, Solace Country House is built to maximise the warmth of the sun while being immersed in the stunning sweep of mountain scenery. Elaine's caring hospitality is great to experience - crisp linen, warm comfortable beds, luxurious bathrooms are just a few of the delights in store for you. A keen gardener, Elaine takes pleasure in sharing the fruits of her endeavours with her guests and her hearty breakfasts reflect this.

Not our first visit and we will be back again to be rejuvenated by the beauty of this location.

Room Tip: If you need wheelchair facilities, these are available. Beds can be arranged as king or twin.

A lovely peaceful weekend treat. A gracious host with breakfasts that were well presented and great value, cooked to suit our needs. The room was immaculate and we were pampered with treats. With a fantastic view to the mountains and a convenient place to stop on our way skiing Solace Country House is highly recommended.

We spent a lovely relaxing night here. Such a nice new house, with a lovely feel to it. Everything was set out perfectly and it was soo quiet, such a nice difference from living in the city!
Amazing views to wake up to and the sunrise was picturesque! Even got to see Mt Cook's snowy peak.
Scrumptious breakfast was waiting for us when we got up and Elaine is a fantastic host!
Highly recommended for a nice relaxing stay!

We spent time here on our honeymoon and found it both peaceful and picturesque. Easy to find and with a calming feel to it, Solace Country House is a great spot for an idealic New Zealand country-style retreat.
