Guesthouse puts Lake Coleridge region in spotlight

Quickenberry Guesthouse puts Lake Coleridge region in the spotlight again

Tourism in the Lake Coleridge basin was highlighted for a second time running at the Sensational Selwyn Awards on Saturday 26 July when Quickenberry Guesthouse - a fine dining Lodge in the Lake Coleridge basin - was named winner of the 2014 Tourism Award.

Their win follows that of the Lake Coleridge Tourism Group, which won the award last time for their collective work opening up the region to tourism.

Owners of Quickenberry Guesthouse Robert and Christine Koller, who were not able to attend the Awards night themselves, were delighted to hear they had won against such a strong line-up of nominees.

“It’s wonderful to see the continuing growth in tourism throughout Selwyn. The breadth and calibre of this year’s nominees was excellent.

“It’s also marvellous to see the Sensational Selwyn Awards getting stronger with more businesses entering,” says Robert.

Other businesses nominated in the tourism category were: Ballooning Canterbury, Langdale Vineyard Restaurant, Melton Estate, Selwyn Food and Wine Trail, Tothill's Maze, WagonStays Luxury Escape and www.bookme.co.nz.

Robert and Christine have been running Quickenberry Guesthouse for nine years and previously ran restaurants in Auckland and Canterbury. Their guesthouse, located on the grounds of Terrace Downs Resort, specialises in gourmet evening meals and cooking classes for small groups.

Robert also released an impressive cookbook last year. The Quickenberry Vegetable Cookbook is available from Paper Plus in Merivale and Ashburton, Scorpio Books in Riccarton and the Restart Mall, and from Quickenberry Guesthouse directly.
