Red Deer Cottage is a large (over 100 square metres), fully self-contained accommodation and you will already have your instructions for how to enter the Cottage. You will find complimentary toiletries for the first night of your stay as well as teas, coffees, milk, sugar in the kitchen. The Compendium File has information to help you plan your time wisely and there is a selection of brochures in the lounge. It is furnished to a high standard and decorated tastefully to make you feel at home. Make yourself comfortable, read one of the books available or watch a dvd. Enjoy your time. Right next door to the complex, the iconic and most photographed hotel in New Zealand, The Cardrona Hotel, serves delicious meals including breakfast. It has a pretty garden for those warm summer days and evenings, and during winter there is nothing better than a meal and mulled wine around the fire.
