Nous avons été très bien accueillis par Holly. La chambre et la salle de bain sont spacieuses et très propres. Le lit est confortable. Nous avons même eu des petits cookies et du cake à la carotte :) Tout était très bien !
Holly was a hostess par excellence. She made us tea and immediately made us feel at home. The en suite bedroom was immaculately laid out and clean. Actually it looks like a 5 star hotel room with excellent vista of the luxuriant hills in Franz Josef. We could not have asked for more.
The room is more like an own apartment and very nice. Holly and Karl are very friendly and communicative.
Holly and Karl were great hosts. We stayed here one night on our way up the west coast. The room was lovely and very comfortable, looks just like the pictures. They were having a birthday party for one of their boys when we arrived and they even invited us to have some cake. In the morning, they assisted us in booking a helicopter flight around the glaciers for a discount (which was a fantastic experience).
Holly met us as we came in and walked through the suite which had already been pre-heated for us which made it even more comfortable. It looked and felt like staying a a luxury hotel. It was designed and arranged beautifully! The small touches like coffee, tea, and cookies were a bonus. I wish we had stayed longer than just one night!
Lancewood luxury guest room is close to the town centre and have a stunning view. The room is spacious with ensuit bathroom. It was nice to meet Holly and Karl. We had a great stay.
We had a short but sweet stay in Holly and Karl's lovely guest room. The bed was super comfy and we enjoyed breakfast as well. We would definitely recommend!
We are a fun, friendly and outgoing family of four. We love family life and meeting new people. We hope you enjoy staying with us and we look forward to meeting you.
