Staying at Archer House is a little like stepping back in time, but with all the modern comforts and amenities you could wish for, including modern bathrooms, WiFi and TV. The owner has gathered all manner of art works, furniture and artefacts from around the world and they are all here for guests to enjoy. The gardens are lovely and...

What a beautiful, richly appointed home filled with wonderful architectural features. It was really the highlight of our trip to NZ. The managers were great too. We had the place to ourselves on the night we stayed and enjoyed sitting on the deck with a beautiful garden and sunlight in the late afternoon. What a wonderful place to stay for...

We were at Archer House for only one night but I could easily have stayed a second night. The house is beautiful and very well maintained. The caretakers, who don't live on the property but were on-site much of the time, do a very good job and were helpful with suggestions. Our room was airy and light, the bathroom had...

What a beautiful ,tastefully decorated and charming bungalow. We had the whole house to ourselves. Charles & Jackie are wonderful and charming hosts, they joined us for breakfast, and Jackies home made Ginger & Cinnamon Muffins are out of this world, they even let us take a couple away with us. Only regret is that we stayed 1 nite instead...

We were originally planing to stay one night only as part of our trip around the South Island. It's a charming historic house full of antiques from around the world. The rooms and bathrooms were excellent as was the continental breakfast that was provided. When we left after our stay the West Coast was battered by a severe storm which...

This is an amazing house with a ton of character that has been turned into a comfortable bed and breakfast. Everywhere you look there are gorgeous carpets, woodwork, lighting, paintings, and stained glass. The gardens are just as beautiful.

I found myself saying WOW a lot on our drive through the South Island in New Zealand because of the scenery but there is a WOW reserved for this B&B! I would go back just to stay at Archer House.
