"Wonderful accommodation with lovely, friendly hosts. Rooms are so clean with everything you could possibly need. 1st class! Thank you can't wait to come back. Nick & Sheryl - Little River, Christchurch"

Sheryl Mitchell, 06/07/2012

"What a wonderful welcome - a beautiful garden, a lovely welcoming host and a lovely room with awesome views over the mountains. Lynne immediately offered to make reservations for us (and did so at a lovely local restaurant ). She gave us a good pointer on places to visit in the area, how to get there and things to do! Later that evening we met John who was just as lovely! Austin Heights has a beautiful garden that Lynne takes great pride in - this is also reflected in the accommodation that was first class - extremely clean, very comfortable and homemade scones to go with our wine as we appreciated the views in front of us!! When we return to NZ Austin Heights will certainly be back on our list as a place to stay at and would highly recommend it if you are visiting this area!!"
