Enjoyed a memorable birthday lunch followed by an overnight stay in one of the lovely rooms upstairs..perfect for a special celebration. The set lunch was excellent, great presentation and staff were attentive under pressure on a busy day. Could not fault the food and would highly recommend

One of the best places to stay in Hawkes Bay. The staff are amazing, the lodge is gorgeous, drinks in the bar next to the fire the perfect start to a delicious meal. The attention to detail is A+ - a wonderful place to stay if you want to feel special and pampered.

The staff were very friendly and welcoming. I stayed 2 nights in July at an extremely good rate. I was upgraded to a beautiful room with a spa bath and balcony over the garden. The four poster bed was something to behold. The mattress unfortunately was a bit hard for my liking. A small problem in the overall fabulous experience.... More

We stayed at Ormlie Lodge this month, just for a night, but wish it could have been longer! We were given the Hector Jones room, which was stunning. Beautiful views out over the garden, surrounded by private balcony.
