As soon as we arrived, Jo welcomed us with some date and walnut loaf and this typified the welcoming and homely style in which this B&B is run.
The B&B is only 5 minutes drive from the town centre and offers accommodation away from the more touristy areas. We stayed in the standalone cottage which is also more private.
Jo is very friendly and easy to talk to. He is quick to offer advice about where to eat, what to do and a story or two. He clearly know a lot about the natural environment of NZ.
Ribbonwood was a good base from which we could do a glacier walk on Franz Josef.
