Too good for words!

Stunning scenery and very warm hosts............

Fantastic stay (again).  Will always be top of our list when travelling down this way!

A lovely atmosphere, thoroughly relaxing, lovingly kept in the family - you can feel the pride and the history.

Returned 1966 student employee! Now being served instead of serving! Beautiful spot.

Thanks for all your wonderful hospitality and for helping us organise our trip.

We are entirely charmed by everything we found during our brief stay.

Late night fires in the parlour, playing rugby on the beautiful front lawn and stories of the exciting history of the Murrells.

Thank you! Delightful home, breakfasts and help with our sightseeing.  Appreciated the peace and quiet - good for the soul. 

The most beautiful veranda in the South Island! Great stay. Thanks.

We had our wedding in the garden.  It was a perfect day. Thank you all. 

We had a wonderful stay. Thanks for making it so easy arranging the caves and Doubtful Sound, the wonderful breakfasts, the veranda and mostly your family.  Really great!

An absolute gem. Thank you.

Can't think of a nicer place to stay. Great hosts, scrummie food.

This was the highlight of our stay in NZ. Murrells Grand View House was a fantastic place after our travels to Doubtful and Milford.  Rob and Philippa were as gracious hosts that you could ask for.  Attended to our every need making our stay special. 

Thank you for making us feel like we were visiting family.  The view, the breakfast and the warm hospitality are above the best.  Hope to see you again someday. Scott & Linda, USA.

A house and family full of traditions.  With it comes a wonderful place to stay to rest your weary bones, spectacular nature and grand hosts.  Thank You.

Robert and Philippa saved us - got us on a wonderful kayak trip, filled us with fabulous food and pointed us in the right direction overall. 

Yesterday felt like coming home.  Thank you very much for your warm hospitality great dinners and wonderful house.  All the best.  

It would be difficult to find this type of charm and hospitality anywhere else.  And the history of this home is enchanting.
