The caretakers, who don't live on the property but were on-site much of the time, do a very good job and were helpful with suggestions. Our room was airy and light, the bathroom had...

Charles & Jackie are wonderful and charming hosts, they joined us for breakfast, and Jackies home made Ginger & Cinnamon Muffins are out of this world, they even let us take a couple away with us. Only regret is that we stayed 1 nite instead...

We were originally planing to stay one night only as part of our trip around the South Island. It's a charming historic house full of antiques from around the world. The rooms and bathrooms were excellent as was the continental breakfast that was provided. When we left after our stay the West Coast was battered by a severe storm which...

I found myself saying WOW a lot on our drive through the South Island in New Zealand because of the scenery but there is a WOW reserved for this B&B! I would go back just to stay at Archer House.

This is a B & B with a difference and definitely one for the slightly independent traveller. The house is owned by a fashion designer who uses it occasionally but in the meantime makes it available to travellers. The room we had was good, the bathroom excellent and in the evening we had a selection of rooms to relax in....
