  • "Russell and Margery, the owners of St Arnaud House, are the most superb hosts. They took a genuine interest in us and were keen to ensure our stay in St Arnaud was a memorable one. We arrived early and it was no trouble to leave our luggage while we scaled the peaks above St Arnuad. Margery cooked a magnificent meal for us, after our six hour trek to the top of the world and it was simply the best meal we had on our holiday, and we had dined in some top class restaurants in Christchurch, Picton, Blenheim and Nelson. Russell's knowledge of local wines ensured we drank only the best. We enjoyed a relaxing, pleasant and entertaining evening with them, one of those nights you don't really want to end. We awoke the next morning to a magnificent breakfast, again enjoying the wonderful company of Russell and Margery. We have travelled to New Zealand three times over the last five years, we enjoy holidaying there, but this was by far our best holiday and a major reason for that was our stay at St Arnaud House. We can't wait to return and we will. Do yourself a favour, spend at least one night at St Arnaud House on your next trip to New Zealand."

  • "My girlfriend and I were very lucky to come across this wonderful Bed and Breakfast in St. Arnaud New Zealand. We really enjoyed our overnight stay with Russel and Margery who are very friendly, warm, and professional. The house is very warm and relaxing, and is also very close to the beautiful Lake Rotoiti. Russel is an excellent barrister and loves to make fresh coffee or hot chocolates for lucky guests. Margery is a wizz in the kitchen and we had a huge cooked breakfast, with the option of a cold breakfast also made availible. We stayed in the bellbird room, which had a great comfortable bed, and private bathroom facilities. The house is surrounded by native beech forest, which thrives with native Tuis, Bellbirds, and Kaka, all of which have beautiful songs to sing. Russel and Margery are great hosts and I highly reccomend a stay at the St. Arnaud house"
