I was disappointed by the facilities during my visit (this winter, during cold weather). The woman who runs the premises, although friendly, did not provide sufficient wood to keep the house warm (I had conveyed to her that I was recovering from a recent injury). ie. in the morning the house was freezing and no wood provided. also, the heater in the bedroom did not work properly. I was dismayed also to find that the access to the front door had slippery, slimy unstable stone pavers very loosely nestled in sand...even when I pointed it out to staff nothing was done. Lovely old historic house done up beautifully but not recommended for anyone who isn't prepared (in winter) for freezing cold house! Also had disappointing experience, tried to run myself a hot bath (which would have been lovely) but the bath plug was old and the water continued to leak out of the bath! Not very nice experience especially when in such a cold house. Take lots of warm clothes and a hot water bottle if you go there in winter. In summer there would be no issues and she did say she would replace bath plug as soon as possible. Lovely historic old house and very clean.…
Cozy and comfortable in the dorms! Thanks Kate :) Your gardens and yoga studio are beautiful. It felt like staying in someone’s home which was very nice. The outdoor kitchen was impressive and play dingbats in the lounge for a good laugh. Easy access to Hokitika and Greymouth.
While doing the wilderness trail my husband and I stayed in Lolly the caravan at Greenstone Retreat. It was fantastic, cosy, warm, clean and welcoming. The hot showers were awesome! And the rest of the facilities were excellent , well maintained and interesting. Thanks Kate for a lovely visit
We enjoyed our stay here. Husband and I had the caravan. It’s really well kitted out and the heater was on to warm it up when we arrived. My son slept in the dorm room. Which he enjoyed. Winter makes this place it but harder work I think. It was cold and damp and wet outside. However we enjoyed our adventure there and would return some sunny day!
Beautiful stay in the villa, highly recommend. Get to the yoga class, it was amazing. Great massage to help with that extra relaxation. We will all be back. Comfy beds, warm with log burner for those colder months. Kate was great
