"We stayed for a night on our way to Queenstown. Quite decent and big hotel in quiet little town, Omarama. We liked the room, no issues with it. However, we got to the restaurant a bit late (at around 8pm) for dinner and were told that the kitchen was already closed and they could only do chips for us for dinner! Only after when I asked if they could do fish with it (since they were already frying the chips), they checked and confirmed that they'd do that for us. I believe there is a local bar and another place for food in the town but don't take risk and make sure you get there for dinner by 6.30/7pm!"

"Best place in New Zealand. We stumbled across this when looking for last minute accommodation and liked the sound of the "sheep station". You can expect to get true New Zealand hospitality and to experience what life on a sheep station is like. All the facilities are clean and warm. They heat up the kitchen, bathroom and your room for you so you aren't cold. You will be surrounded by snow capped mountains (depending on the time of year you visit) and the sky outside your room is filled with stars if you are lucky to have a clear night like we did. Tim and Geva really went the extra mile to make us feel welcome, they are such LOVELY people. I can't recommend this place highly enough. I would have liked to stay a few more nights, but had to hit the road. Will be sure to come back next time I'm in the country. Love Paula & Rachel xx"
