The bedrooms are large double rooms designed in the style of a European farmhouse.  They have thick 600 mm walls, high Oregon ceilings, Italian sandstone flooring, tessellated tiles in the bathroom and double glazing.   French doors open to a private courtyard with views over Mt Cook and the Ben Ohau range.  Ambient light floods each room with stunning warm light at sunset.  

Both bedrooms have comfortable super king beds that can be reconfigured into two king single beds for twin share.  Enjoy a high quality restful stay with only the best in linen and drapery.


The bathroom is luxurious and is designed in Edwardian style with tiled walls and a tesselated French Winkelmann tile floor. To add to the sense of elegance, the bathroom is fitted out with exclusive Perrin and Rowe tapware produced by English craftsmen with a passion for authentic design, quality and durability.  You can bathe at leisure in the princess bath with hand shower, or revive under the rainshower.  As one guest commented 'the shower was the best I have had!'


The library has a wide range of reading for your perusal.  Looking out through the french doors to Aoraki (Mt Cook) the library is your private lounge for relaxing, reading, working or entertaining.  Aside from a comprehensive selection of books, the library has some wonderful antique armchairs, a writing desk and opens onto a north facing and sunny courtyard.
