Very friendly, lovely b+b. Delicious breakfast - perfect for a day of cycling! Great location within close walking distance of Omarama town centre. Hosts were very friendly and helpful. Good supply of tea and coffee in the room.

Kay and Hank are wonderful hosts. Very friendly and exactly what you'd want from a B&B. We were cycling through the South Island and stayed in the town overnight, and Big Sky was perfect. The house has two private rooms with their own entrance in the backyard (which has a hammock, swing chairs, and tables if you want to relax)...

We arrived at Big Sky B & B to find a lovely, private room with its own street entrance and access to the main house via a patio and courtyard. The room was beautifully decorated and very comfortable with quality linen and bedding. The large shower, with great water pressure was very welcome, as was access to the outside line...

Had a one night stay at the Bigsky B&B. The room was very comfortable, tidy and spacious. Our hosts were most welcoming and friendly. The cooked breakfast was great and we enjoyed the company of Hank and Kay. Happy to recommend to anyone.

Kay made us feel very welcome and made some helpful suggestions about eating places for dinner within walking distance. The B&B rooms are warm and comfortable with their own entrances. It is located on the edge of Omarama in a quiet residential street. We ordered breakfast from a menu during the evening and gave the time we wanted to eat....

Kind, warm, welcoming owners. Went above and beyond by helping us out when we arrived wet and muddy from the Alps2Ocean trail. Delicious breakfast, made to order, and enjoyable conversation. Highly recommended.

Kay was a welcoming, friendly host who settled us in to our lovely garden room. Setting is a quiet street in Omarama. Everything was spotless with quality facilities. Good wifi. The bed was extremely comfortable & we had an excellent nights sleep. We had a separate entry which made coming and going much easier. The town is a short walk...

We arrived at Big Sky B & B dripping wet and cold after a long day cycling the A2O trail. Kaye greeted us so warmly, armed with newspapers for us to stuff in our soaking shoes, the heating was already on in our room, and she took all our very wet clothing to put in her tumble dryer. Both she...

We stayed with Kay and Hank while cycling the A2O trail. Two purpose-built, modern units are attached to the house giving an excellent balance of privacy and inclusion. Kay and Hank (along with Holly - the most chilled out dog in the world) make excellent hosts. Breakfast was delicious. If you're looking for somewhere to stay in Omarama you really...
