A couple of particular places also caught our eye:

3 day special break for seniors

Gateway Motel Picton
This small motel located at the top of the South Island of New Zealand (gateway to the beautiful Marlborough Sounds), caught our eye because of the sheer number of outstandingly warm reviews it and its hosts, Chris and Kerri, have received. The room rates are reasonable too (AUD90-$117.) The South Island of New Zealand is beautiful beyond compare; why not start, or finish, your trip at the top?
