The discerning traveller wants choice in the range of luxury accommodation offered to them - choice between hosted stays, self-contained and full-service luxury lodges.
New Zealand's hosted city, country, beach and off-the-beaten-track stays offer a bed and breakfast service and the opportunity to get to know the Kiwi characer at close quarters. This is what distinguishes hosted accommodation from the many motels and hotels - our host's interest in and sensitivity to the needs of their guests. Always, our hosts will give of themselves and share their way of life as well as sharing their home.
Self-contained cottages, vacation apartments and holiday homes, whether in the city or country, offer the opportunity to get away for a while - to recover from or prepare for the rigours of travel, or to just relax and soak up some sun or culture.
And when it is time to luxuriate in a full-service, boutique resort, Friars Guide properties offer some of the highest standards of service available in New Zealand.
Other accommodation guides have come and gone, but Friars has been consistently successful for four reasons. First is the size and quality of the images. Second is the volume of comprehensive and informative text. Third is the use of an objective writing style where marketing puffery and superlatives are not used everywhere. Fourth is the personal recommendation of the authors which is based on a personal visit to each property - if it does not meet our minimum standards for location, building, services and amenities, and delightful hosting, then it is not accepted for inclusion in Friars Guide.

coastal gardens and alpine wonders
The Mackenzie region in the central South Island stretches from the Southern Alps to the Timaru coast with Christchurch to the north and Otago to the south. Beneath Mt Cook, New Zealand's highest mountain at 3,754m, the Mackenzie Country is a region shaped by glaciers, leaving a network of rivers and lakes with a distinctive turquoise blue colour caused by suspended glacial
rock flour. The Tasman Glacier, at 27km one of the world's longest outside of the polar zones, feeds Lake Pukaki in the centre of the region and it is here that canals channel the water to hydroelectric generators. Naturalists the world over come to view the stunning display of flowering plants and unique insect and bird life in the area. The coastal areas around Timaru offer a wealth of gardens and heritage trails to explore, and is a base from which to commence activities such as skiing, including heli-skiing and ski touring. Guides are available for climbing, mountaineering, tramping, snowboarding and glacier exploration. The Mackenzie Country is named after a famous New Zealand outlaw: James Mackenzie, with his sheep dog Friday, was a sheep rustler.
