Hi Anonymous Thank you for your lovely review. We pride ourselves on being as eco-friendly as possible and think we are doing a pretty good job, so we love to hear that people have noticed. We love our new rubbish system in the silo kitchen - that's a new feature we installed just recently and find it to be working out really well. We love it when we see that guests have separated their trash into the correct compartments :) :)

The property is so well done with all the facilities you can think of crammed into a well designed silo space. Loved all the little industrial touches like light switches, kitchen drawers, taps etc. The sky light is great, could see a few stars when the clouds cleared with lights off. Try with the lights on too for a good view of the bed:)

Absolutely loved staying in the silo. You had everything you needed. Take up their offer of getting the bread delivered to your silo. Would definitely stay again

Something different!

The silo was really comfortable and quirky. The radiator was on ready for us so the room was toasty warm on a cold day and that was appreciated! You need to read guide book as it is hilarious. The room was clean and welcoming and the bed was comfy. There were just little toucheshere and there that made it such a great experience. . I highly recommend breakfast at the Little River Cafe - it was busy but worth the wait. And if you go into Akaroa then go on the Akaroa Dolphins cruise - it is an amazing 2 hours that you won't regret.
