We were pleasantly greeted with an upgrade in our accommodation with no extra charge. The hosts put us in a two bedroom unit with a lounge & fully equipped kitchen. All of the facilities were presented in a neat, clean & fresh manner. I was even impressed that we were asked whether we'd prefer full cream or skim milk (most places don't give you that choice).
The the cool think was free WiFi. In this modern era of travel, free WiFi is a great addition to any accommodation.
Kids both agreed that this place deserves a 5 star rating.

A brilliant red sky this morning which made us aware of the saying , Red sky in the morning, shepherd's warning. Rain coming up.

Milford Sound was incredible so we don't regret doing the Deep South but with hindsight if you don't plan on visiting Stewart Island, or if you expect bad weather, it would perhaps be more economical, based on both time and money, to visit Milford Sound from Queenstown.

... in the centre of town to meet with CJ whilst we headed to the Hilton. The Hilton was just what we needed in my opinion - lovely bed, stunning bathroom and a relaxing area with TVs and sofas. Heaven. Mum and I were in one room and the other chicas were sharing on the floor below. We agreed to meet in 20 minutes for a cheeky bit of room service and cabbaged in front of the TV for the rest of the evening. I don't think I moved from the sofa apart from when food arrived. ...
... on but we passed through noting the large river we crossed.
As we entered Invercargill, we navigated our way around the labarynth of shops, cafes and warehouses before stocking up on supplies and heading to the campsite. A welcomed shower, recharge and we are back in the real world with wifi, we finished the day with a full english and a lovely cup of tea!
We woke up today early to be able to come down the mountain without too much trouble. Skippers road only allows one sided traffic and because it twists and bends like crazy – it is hard to see if someone is behind the corner. And since the options to avoid collision are either collide with the wall of the mountain or drop down the canyon – we decided to start as early as we could.
