We really appreciated the flexibility of Deja given that most of the other bookings had been cancelled. Deja was excellent. Customer focused, hospitable, helpful and entirely at our service in an unfussy and unobtrusive way. The setting is spectacular and he helped us make the most of it pointing out accessible walks to maximize our stay. Later in the evening I watched him good naturedly change the flat tyre of some late arriving guests. Says it all really. We’ll come back!! Trish and John, Mosgiel

Goede kamer, lekker eten, leuke gastheer.
Deze mooie ruime kamer had ik niet verwacht op deze afgelegen plek. Daarnaast was het restaurant erg goed: heel gevarieerde keuze en het diner was een van de beste die ik in Nieuw Zeeland heb gehad. (Ik ben niet echt onder de indruk van het eten in NZ). Het is een heerlijk rustige plek en vanuit je kamer en het restaurant heb je een geweldig uitzicht. Het hotel wordt volledig gerund door 1 jongeman, die sinds kort assistentie heeft van een Franse jonge vrouw, en ze zijn beide erg laid-back. Het hotel ligt vlak bij Edoras (uit Lord of the Rings) en om er te komen moet je 21 km over een onverharde weg rijden.
