    A Taste Of The Good Life”

    Should you find yourself in Central Otago and in need of accommodations, you would do yourself a favor by looking up the Ardgour Strawbale Bed and Breakfast. You will not find it on the beaten path, but the location, its pastoral serenity is all important to its charm. . Geoff and Claire will greet you with their warm and open smiles. Their excitement for their home and region is contagious, and soon we found ourselves enjoying their bounty. The rooms were clean and comfortable with a rustic elegance and still with all the modern amenities. The breakfast was delicious and with many choices-all organic. We even got to feed some of their sheep as we strolled their lovely property. Geoff and Claire thank you again for sharing your home. You will thank them too.

    A most enjoyable and memorable stay on our 14 day high country road trip of New Zealand's South Island. Overlooking an olive grove this two room B & B is a pure delight. Surrounded by stunning scenery, with warm hospitality and the finest of home grown / home made food and produce Ardgour Strawbale B & B is NZ at its very best.

    For some, it might be a bit off the beaten track, but it is well worth it. It is within striking distance of Queenstown and Arrowtown and within a great wine region, as well as interesting ruins of a mining town. It's close to Cromwell and an excellent restaurant (No. 7) and if you's rather dine in, the hosts will provide dinner with reasonable notice and modest price. The setting is beautiful and don't forget to bring back some of their olive oil. The hosts are wonderful people. It was a very enjoyable stay.

    What a lovely place! It's slightly off the beaten track so very quiet - be prepared for that and make arrangements for food with your hosts who are lovely and seemed very accommodating. The place is modern and nice whilst eco friendly and rural. We had a lot of laughs feeding the sheep in the morning after a delicious breakfast. I only wish we had stayed longer!

    Claire and Geoff could not have been more helpful. The house is quite remote, which is part of its charm. A place to get away from the main tourist spots and experience rural New Zealand life. Lovely fresh ingredients in the breakfasts. We were pleased to be able to observe local sheep dogs at work on the small holding. A lovely peaceful and comfortable place.

    The hosts were welcoming, the surroundings were unique with olive & fruit trees etc, and the peace & quiet perfect.

    Excellent stay overall. It is rural and up a gravel track so don't expect to walk into town for a meal but we were prepared for that and what better location for a glass of the host's excellent wine while relaxing and watching the sunset. Lovely people to chat to and made us feel truly at home in our comfortable, well equipped room.
