What can I add.

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 21 Apr 2016
Just read these reviews of Jane and Roger's perfect cottage.They all rave and I can't add anything else, than to say this is kiwi hospitality at its best.
Do yourself a favour and you will experience stunning scenic beauty, peaceful surroundings, immaculate accommodation and two very special hosts.

The cottage is well situated approx 15 min from Queenstown by car. Not close enough if you want to be in the middle of the action, but if you want to relax, this is the right place. Jane was a marvelous host and answered our every question rapidly. A very good place to stay near Arrowtown.

Jane and Roger are warm, friendly hosts who went out of their way to be helpful and accommodating.
Rather than the Cottage, itself, we were in one of the one bedroom apartments. There was a good choice of ingredients with which to make up our breakfast. There was some home baking to greet us on arrival.
The rooms were clean, spacious and a lot of care had obviously been taken in the decoration. There are lovely views from the rear of the property and an outdoor seating/eating area from which to enjoy them.

When I contacted the hosts about staying at Orchard Cottage it was already booked but they offered us a one bedroom apartment on the end of their house and it is perfect for a couple. Communication with Jane was good beforehand and on arrival we were warmly greeted and there was even a welcome sign up and it was a wonderful way to start our New Zealand adventure after a long flight.

A welcome pack was awaiting us with homemade cake and Jane also kindly provided us after our long flight with a breakfast basket (for a small charge) with homemade muesli, fruit juice, delicious fresh fruit compote, yoghurt, different breads, jam and marmalade, which actually kept us going for the three days we were there. The apartment is like home from home and is beautifully furnished with all the little touches and Jane and Roger are lovely hosts who are on hand to give advice on where to go etc or give you your privacy. What could be better than waking up in the morning with a view of the Remarkable Mountain range!

The cottage and apartment are set in beautiful gardens, positioned close to Arrowtown, only 5 mins away, which is definitely worth a visit and has lots of lovely restaurants for dinner. Queenstown is about 20 mins away and the airport is only 15 minutes away so perfect after a long flight. We couldn't fault anything, apart from the wet weather but that wasn't our hosts fault, and it was as perfect as it could be and one of the highlights of our New Zealand holiday.

Jane and Roger make this quiet oasis a best pick. About 2-3 km from Arrowtown, a freestanding 2br structure across the yard from their home. Comfy in every way, lots of personal touches that make the visit easy on the traveller. Free use of the laundry made it even better! If you like Arrowtown but want quiet and helpful local host input, this is the place.

We have just spent 10 peaceful nights at orchard cottage . It was a family ski holiday. We skied mostly at Cardrona but Coronet peak and The Remarkables are very close too. The cottage is sunny, bright, clean and so comfortable with beautiful views. You feel like a local with Jane looking after you and advising you on where to go and what to do. Jane and Roger welcomed us warmly and treated us like relatives. Each day Jane wrote a message to us on the blackboard near the front door. She even played spotlight with our 3 children one night! So a lovely comfortable place to stay in the countryside but close to Arrowtown which is nicer than Queenstown with great restaurants and a movie cinema.
