Teichelmann’s Bed & Breakfast offers a glimpse into New Zealand West Coast heritage, featuring fascinating memorabilia from the days of pioneering exploration into the Southern Alps. Dr Ebenezer Teichelmann was a renowned mountaineer, photographer and conservationist who used the original part of the house as consulting rooms and small private hospital after being appointed Medical Superindent and Surgeon General to the Westland District Hospital in 1897. The house was extended in ‘arts & crafts’ bungalow style about 1922 and the upstairs section added around 1932.
