Wife and I and another couple stayed at the Blue Thistle for two nights. We all very much enjoyed the appointed cottages out in the country with the cows grazing right out your front door. The cottages were very comfortable with eat in kitchen area, living room and large bath room. Bedroom and beds were very comfortable For the record, TV in NZ on the whole is not very good, but the Blue Thistle had the best TV by far with a large channel selection. The setting is quiet country but only a 2 minute easy drive into town. Also there is plenty of parking in town, so the drive to dinner was not an issue at all.
I can not end this review without speaking about our hosts....Peter and Annette. Both are delightful. We spent more time with Peter who was a riot and fun person to get to know.
Unfortunately, Peter and Annette have sold the property to new owners taking over around April 4. Peter and Annette seemed to be happy with the on coming new owners and I would hope that they will maintain the property as well. Best to both Peter and Annette in your new venture and thank you for a wonderful stay at the Blue Thistle.
