Beautiful rooms. Lovely views. Friendly staff. I stay in a lot of hotels and Lodges/B&B's. About 30 a year over the past 8 years. Buller's Rest is firmly in my top 5, and was an unexpectedly pleasurable end to my day.

Fantastic venue. A diamond location in an area with limited options. Highly recommended on a historical level and a plus is the valley views. If you interested in battle fuels memorabilia this is a must stay
