My wife and I stayed at Murrell's Grand View House for two nights during our trip to New Zealand. We had a wonderful experience staying here. Highlights: 1. Old world charm with stunning view of lake Manipouri in the back yard. And you can easily take a nice stroll to the beach along the lake. 2. Great location. Only a...

We stayed a couple nights at Murrell's and it was nothing special. Yes, the house is old, and that can be charming, but overall we didn't care for it that much. We opted for this location over Te Anau since we were doing an overnight excursion on Doubtful Sound and the departure point was literally right down the road (walking...

Thank you for the review. We do have feedback forms in the rooms for means of rectifying any issues in a prompt fashion. Just to clarify the windows are fine to open during the day but suggest to close them at night due to insects ( mainly moths due to being on the edge of NZ rainforest) and remind people...

We had a wonderful relaxing stay in this historic coach house. Views are amazing. Hosts are 'no fuss' people, who work hard in the background. We made good friends with other visitors here, as we enjoyed dinner together, then sat around the open fireplace

Thank you for your review. As you alluded to in your review as fantastic as the views, breakfast etc are, it is quite often the other travellers one encounters that make the journey so special. We hope to see you again.

How many times do you have an opportunity to sleep in a home that was begun in 1889? That's the beauty of this Bed and Breakfast. If you're looking for a modern touch, sit on the comfy bed or look in the bathroom, but if you are looking for a NZ family history look no further. Views were indeed grand....
