We had originally planned to travel from Nelson to Queenstown via Christchurch but that fell victim to the earthquake damage. I was less enthusiastic about the western route but decided we would just drive and get there. So wrong! The drive was lovely and the stops were so much more interesting than we expected.
The evening at Ropatinis was just a delight and the dinner was a feast. There were perhaps 15-20 items from which to choose and wine and beer were included. It would be hard to overstate the sense of relaxation that surrounded our visit and the folks were helpful in telling us what should be done while there. Trish arranged a helicopter trip to the glacier on a sparkling, clear day and the whole experience was a wonderful surprise.
The rooms were comfortable and the living room has a wood stove that makes it all cozy and a great spot for decompressing after a long and curvy drive.
