Lovely setting, special for us as we got married there. Many moons ago. Stayed for a special anniversary. We live locally but decided to stay where we were married, but no accommodation there in those days.

We really enjoyed our stay at Ormlie. The location is great if you have a car and want to explore the nice Hawke's Bay region. The breakfast was excellent and rich, great to enjoy in the sunny veranda. The staff is nice and attentive, happy to give recommendations for vineyards, place to visit and restaurant in the area. It gets... More

Me and my partner stayed here last minute on the way back from Rotorua. We were greeted by a Yorkshire manager even better, she told us they had a pre prom on and other functions also so she upgraded us to the Gertrude Mary Nelson Suite. Even better. The music was off after we got back from our meal in... More

This is a very comfortably restored beautiful old mansion house with bedrooms labeled according to its purpose; as an example the servants’ quarters. These rooms are equipped with a fully up to date bathroom. The house was made using beautiful old woodwork and is in a very tranquil setting surrounded by old and unique trees.

Nestled on a small rise near the golf course, this victorean retreat was just enough off the beaten path to be quiet. The rooms are decorated nicely with grand beds, and modern facilities. The woodwork is amazing, and the history of the house was very interesting. We were lucky to have the place to ourselves for one of the two... More

Character hotel combining perfect mix of beautiful antiques with modern stylish bathrooms. Quiet rural location just 15 minutes drive from Napier and well placed for Hawkes Bay wineries, beaches, Te Mata. Very good food and excellent service from all the staff. We loved our stay here. Michael, Craig and the team really spoilt us and we were sorry to leave.

Stunning place. Hosts were amazing and our room was upgraded for free. No complaints apart from breakfast, which was great but a cooked option would have made it perfect. The area was hidden away so lovely and relaxing and so quiet. So happy that we chose such a beautiful location.

Ormlie Lodge is lovely. We had such a relaxing time there. They made us feel very special and they went out of their way to make our stay wonderful. The Lodge is delightful with a lovely veranda to sit outside on, relax and read a book. Just gorgeous.

Stayed here recently and absolutely loved it. Our room was lovely and comfortable with a beautiful spa bath and the heated floor was a bonus :) Had a really relaxed breakfast in the morning on the deck in such lovely surroundings. Highly recommended.

Ormlie Lodge has new owners who have transformed the place. Lovely, genuinely enthusiastic staff who really look after you, comfortable rooms - pick a balcony one if you can - pretty grounds and a convenient location for travelling to the Gimblett Gravels wine country, Napier and Hastings.
