Your Hosts

Melanie & Ralph Daignault

Kia ora!

Originally from Canada, we have been living for many years in Sydney, Australia.  We discovered the gorgeous village of Lumsden on a Christmas holiday almost 20 years ago and have been holidaying here ever since.  5 years ago, we decided to retire from our busy lives and relocate to this amazing place and are now lucky to call this beautiful town of Lumsden home.  

We hope your visit to this wonderful part of the South Island is special for you and we look forward to hosting you in our historic hotel as you experience all that Lumsden and surrounds have to offer.
