Fodor's Expert Review Archer House
75 Queen St., Westport, West Coast, 7825, New Zealand
Rooms are spacious, linens are fine, and the art collection is impressive at this villa that was built for a local trader in the late 1800s. The owner has traveled extensively, and international influences sit nicely with the vernacular. Watch for the original leather wall linings and ornate leadlight windows. This grand old house has served time as a convent, a private home, and it's now your turn to enjoy the character. Friendly hosts, super continental breakfast, and fresh muffins add those extra touches. The Red Room has an impressively large bathroom. Full cooking facilities are also available, and the garden is so delightful they're often the scene for weddings.
