All I can say is it was absolute and utter perfection. The house is amazing and guests loved the venue. Holding the ceremony and reception in the ballroom and then the guests being able to retire to the drawing for coffee and cognac was perfect. The food was exceptional as were the staff. Our guests felt completely looked after. Vlad... More

We first visited Cotter House around a year ago as a potential wedding venue and made our minds up almost instantly. Gloria came across less as someone who wanted our business, and more as someone who was genuinely excited about hosting the perfect day for us, and so it proved! Come the big day, everything was flawless. The accommodation was... More

We spent 3 nights here and I can only say the host Gloria excels as the hostess to the levels of a 1st Cru Bordeaux such a Lafite. Fabulous stay, sampling her pastries and afternoon tea in all honesty you cant better Cotter House. A repeat stay is most definately on the cards in the next few years. Fabulous building... More

We arrived unexpectedly early at Cotter House at 8 am after a 26 hr flight. Not a problem for Gloria as she showed us to a guest bathroom to freshen up then provided beautiful fresh fruits and tea/coffee/juice in the wonderful ballroom. Every room at Cotter House is beautifully and individually decorated with an eclectic array of art and fine... More

Our 1st experience of B & B in New Zealand, what an experience! Beautiful house, amazing interior and our hostess, Gloria, what can we say. Welcomed with afternoon tea and regaled with tales of NZ history, retired to a fantastic bedroom with beautiful furniture and lovely linens. Enjoyed a glass of wine with Gloria before exploring our dinner options. Breakfast... More

This is a long over due review...I can't count how many times I have returned to the Cotter House to enjoy special occasion or holiday, Christmas, Valentines, Birthday, events... Not many properties could look more amazing than it looks on the web pictures, but Cotter house looks much better than its pictures. The house is a piece of art, with... More

We stayed at Cotter House the last couple of days of our trip in New Zealand. Gloria made us feel most welcome and provided for our every comfort. We enjoyed the sauna and evening bath. Gloria had fantastic dinner recommendations and is a fantastic cook herself. The breakfasts were amazing and very good. We enjoyed the treats during our afternoon... More

When faced with organising a party at very short notice, by a miracle I found Cotter House. Gloria organised a wonderful celebration and the stay was memorable in many ways too. Although we had planned an outdoor beginning to the party, the weather let us down, so Gloria took this in her stride, making plenty of room indoors for the... More

Stayed at Cotter House for three days while visiting Auckland on last leg of NZ visit. An oasis in the heart of the city. Bedroom and bathroom oozed charm, house an amazing collection of antiques and the modern. Overall a delightful stay and can't wait to go back. Thank you Gloria!
