Your review appreciated, thank you Charles!

This is a great place to stay in Akaroa. It’s peaceful with a lovely garden but only a couple of minutes walk into town. It’s very tastefully furnished and quite luxurious. The staff are very welcoming and helpful. Breakfast was good.

We stayed there for 2 nights in the garden room - located outside the main house and self contained. Very friendly service and locally knowledgeable host with very good advice. We enjoyed it very much!
