garden cottage is just right for an overnight stay with everything youll need, no extras, but just right. clean, tidy, only complaint would be the door needs rehanging as it doesnt fit in the space leaving a gap at the top. Ian is very helpful also with lots of local knowledge

I was passing through Blenheim and needed a bed for a few hours so booked the caravan. We were delayed leaving ChCh so I rang to let them know and that there would be two of us. Nothing was a problem, the van was being renovated so we had been upgraded to a little cottage, the second bed was made...

Stayed for two nights, perfect cottage, quiet and very clean and comfortable all mod cons available, the owner Ian very friendly and accommodating and gave great local information, used as a base whilst touring the wine region around Blenheim.

Of all the accommodation that we had booked for our road-trip around NZ, this was the one we were most worried about. But we needn't have been concerned. It turned out to be a lot of fun! The caravan accommodation is, literally, a caravan in the garden. But this is not a caravan that you could hitch up and tow...

We stayed here for 2 nights and had a great time! The owner Ian is lovely and takes good care of his guests, you can feel immediately that he enjoys having guests! He made yummy breakfast with home made fruits from his garden, fresh coffee (no instant!!!) and he gave us good advice for doing a wine tour by bike....

We stayed here for one night in the cottage and were very happy. The accommodation was clean and decently appointed. There were some limited cooking facilities although we didn't use them. Ian was a great host and a really fun guy. Price of the place was good and a good value for the area.

I'm writing this review from an apartment in Wellington. The Apartment is fine, but nothing like Tresco and the wonderful host Ian. We booked the apartment in the garden and it was like living (in a nice way) in a giant wendy house. The room had a small kitchenette, was very clean and had good wifi. A comfy bed and...

Enjoyed our stay at Tresco. The bed was very comfortable and the shower excellent after spending a day out hiking etc. Ian is very knowledgable about the area and is happy to provide advice. The wine tour he recommended picked us up and dropped us back at his front door - it was an excellent tour as well. Breakfast was...

Ian is a wonderful host. He went out of his way to make us comfortable. As we were there on a long weekend & we weren't shure what restaurants would be open, he offered to call around for us and check. He even called around to other motels for some travellers he didn't have room for! My husband is a...

Myself being a city-raised kid, I always wanted to stay in a caravan - and I did at Tresco! The host - very nice and friendly - actually apologized for a "very basic service", but hey - good beds, clean room - actually trailer, bath amenities and towels in the bathroom next to the trailer, barbecue grill in the garden,...
