    One week into our New Zealand holiday. The scenery has been magnificent albeit drizzly weather. The last 2 nights saw snowfall on The Remarkables and surrounding mountains – what a bonus!!! We have been surrounded by snow-capped mountains all the way into Te Anau today – absolutely beautiful.

    I am writing to thank you so much for your choice of accommodation to date.

    The room in Te Anau is 5-star with fabulous views to the lake and mountains. A definite surprise is being able to watch TV while in the bath 🙂

    Queenstown room (#421) had views over the lake and mountains and nicely fitted out.

    Franz Josef was a little below par, however was comfortable and clean.

    Christchurch was good location and no problem with late check-in.
