Gary and Fran are very friendly and warm hosts. My stay in their Lord of the Rings-themed Barliman's room was most memorable. Because it was very busy during 'Warbirds over Wanaka' over Easter, Gary made the effort to book nearby restaurants for
me and fellow lodgers, which was much appreciated. He also crafts a cool gourmet brekky! Fran's bubbly enthusiasm was a joy to behold. Thanks for a great stay! Highly recommended.
Gary & Fran were so wonderful. They gave excellent recommendations on dining, hiking, directions. They invited us for drinks & hosted the most wonderful breakfast. The free wifi was a huge plus and if I could do it all over again, I would stay
more than 1 night.
