Sue K

Stayed one night at a family studio here. Located in Kimbell about 25 minutes far from Lake Tekapo. A bit old but very well maintained. Lovely host couple. Very clean, tidy and spacious room. Could see their efforts on every single item in the room to make guests satisfied. Would go back here. Definitely recommend.


Cora-Ann Dodd

Great place to stay, older rooms but very clean, tidy and spacious with everything we needed. Owner was lovely and friendly. Silverstream Hotel next door is a great place for dinner. We would happily stay here again.

“For the price it was clean and tidy. It had everything that you would want in the kitchen. They could upgrade their tv’s. The shower was super powerful. It was nicely situated just a short drive from fairle. The grounds were well looked after and it had lovely garden areas. I would recommend it to anyone needing a comfortable bed on the way to or from Tekapo.”
