Thankyou Stuart - so please you enjoyed your stay in Akaroa - er really have a little piece of paradise, can see why Captain Cook fell in love with the Peninsula on his visit in 1769. The birds are chirping away as I write this and having a bath in the bird bath outside the window ... Best wishes Noel & Sharon

"All seemed good to us"
"We had the Fyfe Room, was perfect."
"The Beaufort room was small. Bed was comfortable, but we found the pillow cases a bit coarse on the face."
"For accessibility request the ground floor room - small but cosy. There are larger rooms with better views upstairs."
"We had a north facing overlooking the gardens and harbor"
