We were initially disappointed not to be able to get a double room in the main hostel for our stay, but wait a treat was in tore for us! For the EXCEPTIONALLY reasonable rate we had a gorgeously quaint and modernly appointed three bedroom cottage (all doubles) secluded from the road and all to ourselves. This was the final night of a romantic South Island road trip for us so it was absolute bliss to arrive in from a snowy twilight walk to a toasty roaring fire and fully equipped kitchen to whip up a delicious feast. We had heard about local kiwi conservation and were delighted to hear a few midnight calls from the bush behind. Our host was so friendly and gracious, and the location was a treat with beautiful walks and stunning scenery to capture. Complete with a full stack of dry firewood at our disposal. We will definitely be coming back!!
