9,5 Excellent
Pros: The location was out in the country near Timaru with terrific views, but further than I had expected when I booked the room. Nonetheless, the owner, Elaine, was very nice, the room and bathroom were terrific. The location allowed for a very quiet (silent) night's sleep. Much appreciated, and she prepared a wonderful made to order breakfast.

Pros: The breakfast provided by mine hostess Elaine was stupendous! The 360 degree views were breathtaking, from this hill-top house. Sadly we couldn't stay another night but we had to get to Christchurch Airport for our flight back to Sydney.
Cons: Nothing could have been better! We didn't like that our time was so short there! There was nothing more to NOT like! Sadly we couldn't see Mt Cook to the west, but Elaine assures us that you can see it on a clear day.

10,0 Excellent
Pros: Stunning location- and a gentle welcome from Elaine. Our room was very comfortable and the breakfast cooked with care, just delicious. Oh, and I should mention the lovely scones as well! We relaxed instantly here, and enjoyed our stay. The recommendations from Elaine were perfect, and our trip to stunning Lake Tekapo is one we will remember for a very long time. She also recommended the scenic route into Dunedin, our next stop, which was well worth a short detour. If you were to ask my husband, he would say his stay was made perfect by Elaine recording the last Wales match in the 6 Nations championship - and going on to win the Grand Slam. It was screened at 3:30 am, but we were able to watch it over breakfast! Thank you Elaine!
Cons: Nothing we did not like
