This is a great place to stay in Akaroa. It’s peaceful with a lovely garden but only a couple of minutes walk into town. It’s very tastefully furnished and quite luxurious. The staff are very welcoming and helpful. Breakfast was good.

We were warmly welcomed when we arrived, and shown round the house which is furnished with antiques, and garden. Our room was comfortable, with a good en suite. It was very quiet at night.The breakfast was excellent.
