"Wow!" was the first reaction we had when approaching the properties after a long drive, the grounds are beautiful, the cottages well positioned, ours had an amazing view of the bay. The cottage was well equipped, welcoming and clean. The staff have an excellent knowledge of the area, and good advice on where to visit in Akaroa. Lovely to wake... More

We stayed 2 nights here and it was divine. The staff were incredibly knowledgeable and helpful, the grounds are stunning with an amazing view over the harbour and the cottages are very comfortable and well equipped. It was lovely being just out of town, but only a short trip into town and all the great restaurants and activities. It was... More

We capped off our 2 week NZ trip with 2 nights in this lovely accommodation. We had a spa studio with a lovely view. Very clean and comfortable. Rick was very helpful and informative, and nothing was too much to ask. We loved the spot just out of town which was so private, it was a walk to town, but... More

We spent just one night here during our speedy tour of New Zealand and wish we could have stayed longer. Such a cosy cottage in a peaceful and secluded setting in the woods, with stunning views down to the lake . Though there are other cottages around, you would never know, and you can pretend you are an early settler... More

I stayed in the Rowan cottage for one night. The views from the cottage are spectacular and incredible value for money. The fireplace was nice and toasty in the evenings - I couldn't work out how to use the radiator but I'm sure reception would have helped if I had asked. The cottages are a little way out of town...

Had a beautiful scenic drive to the Akaroa cottages. Plenty of sheep , greenery and mountain view. Was raining while we were there. Just need to drive slowly and carefully as it's uphill and downhill drive. Did not come down to view the French cottages as it was raining and was having a need to look for a toilet and... More

So glad we stayed here - it was cold outside and too windy for the dolphin cruise but we were toasty warm indoors with some nice NZ cheese and wine. The bathrobes and in-room spa tub were luxurious and we really enjoyed our two night stay. Rick was very helpful with the fireplace which we struggled to get going ourselves.... More
