South Island Accomodations for Upcoming Trip

Jump to last reply

So my wife & I finally have our itinerary set for our trip to the South Island in April. I have booked most of our accommodations, but still struggling with a few. Here's what I have so far:

Nelson (1 nt) - Staying most likely at Grand Mecure Nelson Monaco. Any other Suggestions?
Farewell Spit (1 nt) - Clemmiec B&B - Couldn't find much info on this B&B, but it is close to Farewell Spit and Wharariki Beach. Anyone ever been there?? Anyone done the Cape Farwell Horse Trek?
Kaikoura (2 nts) - Bendamere House B&B
Mt. Cook (1 nt) - Hermitage Hotel
Queenstown (2 nts) - Thinking about Villa Del Lago based on all the good reviews, but not sure on the view. Any other places between 150 & 275 NZD per night with better views??
Milford Sound (2 nts) - Milford Sound Lodge
Wanaka (2 nts) - Beacon Lodge B&B
Hokitika (1 nt) - Shining Star Beachfront Chalets
Akaroa - (2 nts) - ??? Looking for a nice B&B, with great view (NZD 150 - 225ish).

I'd really appreciate any feedback good or bad on some of the accommodations or if you have a better suggestion I'd love to hear it.
