A really comfortable stay for me and my family (2 adults, 2 children). We were given a 2 room apartment with huge bed for the adults and twin beds for the kids with an interconnecting bathroom. All were spotlessly clean and luxurious. Karen was really welcoming and an absolute gem in terms of knowledge of the whole of South Island....

Karen is a fantastic host with a wealth of local knowledge that turns a visit into a memorable experience. Our room was well appointed and very comfortable. We were advised to rise early to get the best pictures of Mount Cook. Karen had breakfast ready on our return neither disappointed.... we plan to be back!

We spent two nights here in a room that had spectacular views of Mts. Cook and Tasman. When we weren't enjoying the mountain view, we enjoyed conversing with Karen Simpson and enjoying her harty and delicious breakfasts. The rooms were clean, cpmfortable though simple in their appointments. We would definitely recommend staying here.

Karen is a terrific hostess and her full english breakfast was the best. She is full of good information about the surrounding area and beyond. The accommodations are modern and spacious and the property has wonderful views of the mountains. Do try to take a photo of her pond with the mountains in the background, we forgot.

We had a spacious and spotless room and Karen made us very welcome even though we turned up a bit early. This is a beautiful part of the world and the view from this B&B fantastic when the cloud is not covering the mountain. Good value and quiet.

Karen is absolutely lovely. She goes out of her way to make sure you have everything you need. She knows people in the business and can get a lot done for you in ways of helicopter rides, restaurant bookings etc. Her property is very beautiful,modern and very kid friendly.
