The BEST homecooked breakfast during our South New Zealand's stay! Great, wonderful and helpful hosts (Fay and Stephen) who had made good recommendations for places to visit during our stay at their house and also those not-to-be-missed stop-over 'sight-seeing places' during our drive to our next destination. Such a BEAUTIFUL home with very nicely furnished, well-kept, cosy, clean and well...

We stayed with Fay and Stephen at the start and end of our visit to South Island. They are generous hosts who have a wealth of knowledge and ideas on how to get the best from a trip to NZ. Their home is beautiful - lovely rooms and delicious breakfasts. The hot tub was a welcome addition after a long...

There are no words to describe our stay at Mentieth. Faye and Stephen are now part of our lives forever. This has been an experience we will never forget. The accomodations were unsurpassed, so comfortable, homey and relaxing. Thank you Mentieth, we look forward to coming back soon.

It is difficult to decide which is the best aspect of this B&B, the hosts Fay and Stephen Graham or the pleasant accomodations themselves. We think Fay and Stephen win this contest with their friendly manner and ability to make you feel like you are more than just a guest. We hope they will have a spot for us on...

Stayed here for 3 nights with my son & daughter, and were treated like members of the family rather than paying guests. On the first night we joined the other guests for drinks around the pool. Restaurants were booked for us.The breakfast menu was different every day This is one of the best B&B's I have stayed on.

Faye and Stephen were wonderful hosts and provided us numerous ideas of places to visits with their local knowledge of the South island for the 3 days we stayed. They also were most accommodating when I made a mistake on arranging accomodations the night before we flew back to the US. They welcomed us back with very short notice. The...

Menteith Country House is an absolute treasure. Fay and Stephen are absolutely delightful hosts - nothing was too much trouble whether it be cooking me a meal at night or offering to wash laundry. From the moment I arrived I was warmly welcomed and provided with a drink and biscuits. The room was exceptionally clean, the bed and pillows were...

A beautiful home set in lovely surroundings on the outskirts of Christchurch. Fay and Stephen could not have been more welcoming! As we were the only guests, Fay moved us into a larger room which was very comfortable and extremely well appointed, with everything you could wish for. Fay and Stephen were unstinting with their time, help and superb advice...
