Our stay with Holly and her family was just lovely. Her B and B room is well set out and spacious , with lovely decor. The shower is the best in New Zealand! Holly kindly got us onto a discounted helicopter flight over the Franz Joseph and fox glacier, which was one of our highlights of our trip. Holly is an absolute delight and we learnt lots about the area of Franz Joseph. A wonderful air b n b.
Lovely hosts! Holly and Karl were really sweet and kind to us. The room was spacious, clean and comfy. Holly was really happy to help us book restaurants and give us local recommendations to eat (88 was really good!).
Continental Breakfast was also served in the morning.
For those of you travelling, Holly also allowed us to use their washer and dryer. Perfect for those on the constant go.
Thanks Holly and Karl!
Holly and Karl are very friendly and easy-going. We enjoyed staying at their lovely house, with the sweet companion of Oscar, Zack and Mayer. The rooms are comfortable. It's really a home away from home!
Unfortunately we were unable to stay with Holly and Karl Ross but they were very kind when we had to go home unexpectedly. I'm sure they would be a delight to stay with.
Holly and Karl were great hosts, so welcoming and easy to talk to. The room was fantastic - clean, stylish and spacious only a few minutes drive from the main street. A bit of luxury in the Glaciers :)
Lancewood Luxury Guest room really was luxurious, its just a shame it was such a fleeting visit. We could have easily stayed in that super comfy bed all day. I would recommend it in a heart beat.
Thanks for having us Holly, lovely to meet you.
