We stayed in a garden studio room for I night including dinner & breakfast. I thought the accommodation was delightful. The bed was comfortable, the bathroom huge with a lovely wet room shower. The views from the window at the front magnificent. They also have a pet lamb who is very vocal & entertaining. Both Colin & Trish couldn't have been more helpful. Organising our helicopter flight into the mountains. We had a gorgeous meal with them. We even played a dice game he plays with his family! Breakfast was delicious too. I loved our stay and wish we could have stayed longer. I have very fond memories of our visit!!!!

Unfortunately we came to this B&B after staying at some really comfortable and stunning B&Bs previously, which meant that our expectations were high and we were slightly underwhelmed with this place. The cabins are quite out of date and although there is a TV it was tiny, and the wifi signal was terrible. The shower was very good though, and it is nice to have your own cabin so you can come and go as you please. The breakfast was fine, not as good as some places, but plenty of food in the continental style. The hosts were very friendly and pleasant, and the views from the dining room to Mount Cook are wonderful.

The separate cabins were perfect for our stay. They were clean, had tea/coffee making facilities and a good sized en suite shower room. Trish and Colin are very entertaining hosts. Colin has some very unusual woodwork which are real works of art. Trish was very helpful in chatting to us and advising us on flights up to the Glacier. We spent a lovely evening with them having dinner and quite a laugh. The food was well cooked and very tastey. Wifi was a bit patchy, but wifi throughout New Zealand proved to be very patchy.

We enjoyed our stay here, Trish was a great host and Collin is a real character the separate cabin style rooms are clean, modern and functional, and the breakfasts were very good, we had a sunday evening dinner with our hosts and it was excellent really good to get some home cooked food after three weeks of travel. Collin's passion for timber and his handy work are worth seeing. It is a great base to visit the local Glacier country.

Trish is a lovely lady, I emailed before we set of on this long trip to organise doing some washing when we arrived, which was a massive help to us, on arriving after showing us or room and asking a very welcome cup of tea showed me the washer, I was able to get it all done and when we arrived back after going out for dinner it was all dry for me. Trish told s where was god to go and see the best view of mt cook that night as the cloud would lift that evening, also where was good to eat. The following night we had per arranged a home cooked meal with our host Trish and Collin which was very enjoyable after 2 weeks of eating out. We had one of the outside room which we loved plenty of space to put all our bags etc. Excellent host, they is even per evening drink and snacks.

Room Tip: They is 2 rooms outside where you can sit out side and look at Mt. Cook best view ever
