    Ivory Towers was charming! Host Dale was friendly and engaging. Positive motivation posters were spread through out the common areas. I especially appreciated the re-purposed log kitchen table, wood stove, and hot tub. This was a perfect vacation within my vacation. I’ll stay here again next time I’m on NZ’s West Coast.

    Kitchen was nice & big, although a few of the stovetops didnt work. The movie room TV was really big and they had HDMI. The bedroom was nice. Definitely worth the money, overall a great place to stay! :)

    We would have liked a lock on the bedroom door, was very surprised there wasn't one. Also the TV didn't work til the manager came and got it going but the second night it still wouldn't go so we never bothered with it. Kitchen and bathroom were very clean.

    We were put on the second floor and I’m pretty sure we had the place to ourselves, it was very peaceful. Decent sized kitchen, with plenty of food storage. Spacious room with multiplug. Good amount of car parking, great view overlooking the town, under the mountains.
