We travelled from Wellington down the west coast to Queenstown visiting Rainbow along the way. We were looking for a place to stay to break up the trip and we chose Archer House at Westport. This was a great choice. The house is beautiful and Charles and Jackie were fantastic hosts. It was a highlight of our trip.

We stayed at the Archer House B&B as part of a quick trip from Christchurch over to the coast and back. I don’t think I can add too much more to what the other contributors have already said – this is a lovely house in a good location and there are some thoughtful touches, such as the home made muffins...

Archer House is a beautiful old villa, kept as though it is a museum piece. The owners and managers don't live on site so in fact you feel like residents in this grand and comfortable home. The decor is gorgeous and its warm and comfortable and great breakfast is served at the time you nominate when the hosts return to...

We stumbled upon this gem and could not have been luckier. The house is a perfect combination of antique and modern, comfortable and exotic--absolutely beautiful. Jackie and Charles completely surpassed all our expectations and were perfect hosts. We really enjoyed visiting with them over our breakfast, which included delicious fresh-baked muffins. And to top it off, it was a great...

We chose the Archer House from reading the Trip Advisor reviews and we were not disappointed. This is a real find and staying in a heritage house full of antiques and collectables was memorable. Even though you book a room, you get the run of the whole house which was lovely. The room was spacious, tastefully decorated with a very...

What a great find. After a few nights in motels, our stay at Archer House was just what we needed. Not only is the accommodation first class, Jackie and Charles were great hosts, and made us feel at home straight away. A step back in time, well located and great value. Heartily recommended.

We were fortunately enough to have this heritage listed home to ourselves. It was even more special given that it was my birthday and our wedding anniversary. The rooms have been tastefully renovated in keeping with its character and it was filled with antiques, art and artefacts from all over the world. The gardens were amazing and the house was...

We used Archer House as a base to travel and carry out hill walks in the area. It is an old house for New Zealand standards and is well cared for and presented. The location is ideal but the best part are the hosts who ensure your trip is what you expect and are available for advice at any time....
