We spent a very pleasant stop at Solace House while we were touring New Zealand. Elaine made us very welcome and provided good advice on where to dine in the area. The breakfast was very good, the room was very comfortable and in the morning we were rewarded with a view across to Mount Cook in the distance.

Stayed here after Blenheim on way to Queenstown. Property is outside Timaru in the country. Idyllic situation with panoramic view to Mount Cook right round to the sea. Excellent hostess,lovely accommodation and great breakfast. Well worth going out of town.

A very nice place in the country side, everything to perfection. Spectacular views. Elaine, the host is very friendly, helpful with good advice. The rooms are brand new. The food is excellent and we would recommend this for everyone who likes the country side. If you have to be guided with a GPS, it doesn’t find the address sometimes. Different...

When we were planning our 2nd trip to New Zealand we definitely wanted to stay at Elaine's wonderful B&B again. We were not disappointed! A wonderful dinner, Elaine's great company, a comfortable bed, spectacular views, peace and quiet, a delicious breakfast. We left feeling refreshed and energised. Thank you Elaine for being such a fabulous host.
