My partner and I stayed at heartland lodge for just one night but would have been more than happy to stay a few months (or more!)  We were keen to get Jim and Mary to adopt us! We were welcomed to the lodge with a lovely sign addressed to us and other guests as well as the amazing smell of...

First impressions....we were never offered a cold beverage, water, tea or other after a long day of traveling. Guests and hosts were quite loud after 10 PM. One of the lesser appealing accommodations based on many of our other experiences in NZ. All others offered at least bottled water on arrival. I do not drink tap water regardless of the...

Thank you, Carol and Steven, for taking time to post a review and again we apologise for any noise that may have disturbed you shortly after 10 pm.

We decided to stay here because it's close to Mt. Cook and Lake Pukaki, and a good break between Queenstown and Christchurch. Jim and Mary's beautiful home and genuine hospitality were heartfelt and something that we'll always remember. We really had good time jamming with Jim in the evening while enjoying Mary's soothing Rooibos tea. We especially appreciated access to...

Thank you, Rick, for taking the time to post a review and your positive comments. We apologise for the unseasonably cold weather affecting the South Island at this time. Unfortunately there must have been some confusion over terms and rates. The Retreat was booked for two persons only and we managed to accommodate all six of you. The extra charge...

We had an amazing stay at the B&B from Jim and Mary. Although we arrived late we were welcomed with warmth, tea, wine and home made cookies.

- Delicious homemade food along with a heartful welcoming from the host will defenitely make us pay a visit again in the future. 따뜻한 환대와 노부부가 직접 만드신 영국식 음식을 맛보실 수 있습니다. 서양 스타일의 가정모습을 그대로 보여 주고 있어 구경 하는 재미도 쏠쏠 합니다 기대 이상으로 좋은 곳으로 꼭 추천 드립니다 :)

This review is long overdue. My wife and I stayed with Mary and Jim in December while touring New Zealand on our honeymoon. Twizel is a lovely place to visit on the South Island.

Thank you for taking the trouble to review us. The "Welcome Board" ensures that our guests are expected and there is no confusion. Later in the season, we have more time to spend with our guests and enjoy their own stories.
