Akaroa is really beautiful with much to do or just a place to unwind in style. The Akaroa Village inn is really well positioned, rooms/suites well equipped and extremely comfortable and the hosts are extremely helpful and accommodating. Well worth the journey to get there which is mostly very picturesque. Good restaurants to choose from in town also..

Thank you for the kind words! Akaroa is such a wonderful place that we just couldn't keep it all to ourselves. Our door is always open if you need to recharge the batteries.

If we could have stayed here longer, we would have. The self contained apartments are privately owned so each set up might be different but the one we stayed in, right on the waterfront was beautiful. Very well appointed inside, very spacious with all the mod cons, incl washing machine. It was perfect. We cannot fault our stay there. You...

A perfect getaway for myself and my daughter, arriving on a bitterly cold day the day improved significantly with the warm welcome we received on arrival at reception. Stayed in the Captain Cook rooms and the bedding was absolute top quality and a stunning view out to the harbour. A perfect location thank you.

We treated ourselves to a night here after two days hard trekking. The Luxury Suite was expensive compared to other accommodation in Akaroa, but the spa and extra comfy bed made it well worth it! Great view and huge balcony. Only downside was that it was over the office which was noisy quite early on.

We chose the Akaroa VIllage Inn as the start of our tour of the South Island Just over an hour away from Christchurch airport, even the drive over to Akaroa is a pleasure (make sure you stop at the Hilltop Tavern for a stunning view of what awaits you). Having stayed before, we knew that the location is perfect for...

I do not usually write reviews, but this accommodation was so outstanding, that I really wanted to do so! Karen was so welcoming of us - which included my guide-dog - and did everything possible to make our stay the most comfortable, relaxing and enjoyable of times. We arrived in the pouring rain, and she made certain that our apartment...
