  • We loved our 5 days at Snowdon Quarters

    We loved our 5 days at Snowdon Quarters. They were clean and comfortable and the photos don't do them justice. Tony, Vicky, Annabel and Roy were so friendly and helpful and we really enjoyed seeing Tony's museum - full of interesting things. We'll be back!

  • This is an amazing property hosted by some fantastic people

    This is an amazing property hosted by some fantastic people. The property was spotless and had excellent amenities. The large kitchen is a great place to socialise. The families at Snowdon Station went out if their way to ensure that our stay was a memorable one; we have been travelling in New Zealand for 3 months and this was the best place we have stayed at by some distance. We will be telling all of our friends and family about Snowden Station and what a great stay we had here.

  • We had a great stay at Snowdon Station, Windwhistle

    We had a great stay at Snowdon Station, Windwhistle. A really well renovated place with fantastic facilities. From the greeting to a farm tour and even museum tour it was a real treat. Brilliant kitchen, cosy lounge, tasteful master bedroom and bunk rooms. Highly recommended. The drive to Lake Coleridge is a must.
