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.

Great setting and personable friendly service. We were staying only one night so we booked the Nursery Suite. If (when) we stay next time would book a balcony suite. Even so we were very comfortable and relaxed. The setting, peace and quiet , just the birds and paradise. We stayed here because of the proximity to Napier Golf Club, but... More

We recently spent a night at Ormlie Lodge. It was great. We were very well looked after and upgraded to a lovely room with balcony overlooking the gardens. Breakfast was delicious with excellent coffee. The owner and staff were very friendly and attentive and we highly recommend a stay here. We'll definitely be back.

We had such a lovely time, everyone was friendly, open and helpful. It's like stepping back in time to a beautiful and grand old manor with a warm and inviting atmosphere. A real 'can do' attitude with a home away from home feeling. Thank you for having us.
