"Every once in a while you come across someone truly amazing; Cherie is that person. Everything was booked due to the flooding. I had an early morning flight and was lucky to even get to Invercargil. I called and Cherie confirmed she didn't have anything but she offered to check around and call back. She had no luck and was sending out an email to other hotels for possible no-shows. When that didn't work she offered a room that was getting ready for painting. She called in a helper to make up the room, added a TV, warmed the kettle, and added cookies and sweets. This was 8pm! I cried and gave her a hug. She had no idea that we had been soaking at a campsite for a week in Te Anau, we had numerous detours because of overflowing rivers, or that I was leaving because my dad was literally dying. She was just a wonderful person being helpful. The room was perfect and warm and the bed; glorious. Picked up Chinese across the street at Ascot and that was great!
I will never forget her and will direct anyone going to Invercargil to stay there or just say hi to this wonderful person if you're passing through."
