 nice cottage, would book again 

 The cottage was more than adequate for our needs - with a new extremely well equipped kitchen and bathroom. The heating and shower was excellent. Clean linen & towels were provided. The house was warm, clean and tidy We were disappointed with the bedroom arrangments as there were no doors and hence no privacy. A single bedroom was attached to the queen bedroom. The oven upper element didn't work nor did the dryer. Bulb in single bedroom needed replacing. The front door lock was a nuisance. 

  •  We would have appreciated being phoned rather than 'reviewed' to be alerted to any things not working properly in the cottage - we leave our contact info for just that purpose. Anything not working is always fixed - our current tenants who were there before this guest and who have just come back, have no problems with any of these 'issues'. They say the drier works, the oven element referred to is a grill element which works but only on grill, and the front door is okay. 

 Great little cottage. We spent two nights at Salisbury Cottage with our two teenage daughters - the cottage had everything we needed and we found it very comfortable. Quiet location. Would be happy to stay again. 

 Beautifully clean and tidy...truly a home away from home. 

 Salisbury Cottage is a very convenient, affordable and well appointed place to stay. We used it as our base for our young family during several days stay in Buller and Karamea. It proved to be exactly what we were after. The communication with the owner to arrange the booking was also timely and hassle free.
