Spacious cottage in scenic location

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 17 Oct 2016
A wonderful cottage with friendly, helpful hosts who go the extra mile to ensure you enjoy your stay. We appreciated their local knowledge and recommendations on walks, places to see, etc and all the extra thoughtful things Jane does, like home baking, etc. Would certainly recommend staying here and will stay here again.

When we arrived Jane greeted us with freshly baked orange and choc chip muffins, and my name was on the welcome sign. We felt right at home imeadiatly. The cottage was warm and inviting everything was perfect and well cared for. Jane checked on us even offering to get any suplies that we needed for dinner the first night. On the third morning she popped in with fresh scones and jam that she had made. Overall our stay was very comfortable and enjoyable. This is one of the special memories that we will always cherish. Thank you Jane

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.
