Trelawn Place
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 12 April 2006

Trelawn Place is a labor of love, having been built and tastefully decorated over the past 30 years by its owners. It is done in a kind of French Country or English style, with outstanding gardens and grounds. The rooms are decorated in a romantic style. Trelawn Place overlooks the Shotover River Canyon, a truly gorgeous location. The food and hospitality were excellent and we would most likely stay here in the future.

An observation that might be of concern to prospective guests is that the pets are an important part of the household, so those with pet allergies or put off by the presence of pets (and pet hair on the furniture in the sitting area), this should be taken into consideration when selecting your accommodation in Queenstown.

We were also a bit disappointed that although internet access was advertised (a feature important to us), the guest computer was indeed not working; the owner did not know how to fix it and did not seem concerned about it. This meant we had to seek out and pay for an internet station at a local hotel.

We found The Cottage at Trelawn Place on the internet and booked in advance for the shoulder season, getting a very good deal for three nights' luxury accommodation (compared to many places that we had considered in Queenstown). Michael and Nery responded efficiently to our email enquiries providing helpful information about other places to stay around New Zealand as we were planning our itinerary. On arrival at Trelawn Place, we were treated to afternoon tea on the sunny terrace, overlooking the prolific flower gardens and the Shotover River, and Michael's sharing of his knowledge about the range of things to do while in Queenstown. The corgis and cats were very friendly, helping us to feel at home as we were missing our own pets back in Australia. The Cottage was so pretty and comfortable with a magnificent king sized bed in the attic room with a separate entrance for our privacy. Bathroom facilities were excellent as was the little kitchen which enabled us to prepare some simple meals when we felt like staying in for a quiet night. Breakfast provisions were ample and fresh and we also took up the offer of a hearty cooked breakfast in the main house on our last morning. Nery recommeded some activities for us to do while in Queenstown including the Dart River Safari, booking this on our behalf. Michael advised us on where we may find TV coverage of the Australian Football League Grand Final which was on while we were in Queenstown (at a local eating establishment on the big screen TV) so we didn't miss out on watching the season finale. My favourite memory at Trelawn is of our evening spent relaxing in the hot tub in the garden overlooking the river, enjoying a bottle of Central Otago Pinot Gris and smoked salmon from Lake Wanaka, while the sun went down. We will definitely return to Trelawn Place on our next visit to New Zealand and will take some friends to share this wonderful experience with us.

We spent three glorious days and nights at the Trelawn in March 2004. Our hosts made us feel at home and treated us like royalty. The location overlooking the Shotout River is nothing short of spectacular. The grounds are impeccably manicured with flowers everywhere. Our room was was tastefully decorated and comfortable. Our morning breakfast consisted of fresh bakery, eggs, bacon and sausages and the best coffee on the South Island. If you are looking for a true New Zealand experience stay at the Trelawn!
