We had an excellent 2 nights stay in the lodge. Staff are professional, helpful and with high efficiency. It's unbelievable that only a few of them can handle everything in the lodge, including preparing meals, making up rooms, arranging activities and upkeeping the place. In addition, the food served was excellent and thanks to the chef - Charlton Brown! Will... More

A unique experience which combined excellent food and wine for the adults and engaging activities for the children. The chef served up the most divine foie gras and luscious lamb. Even the breakfast was superb. This is a must!

I had the wonderful experience of staying at this Lodge on a recent trip to New Zealand. It is tucked away on a road a few miles from the centre of Roturoa and is accessed by a sweeping drive of lovely bushes and flowers and trees and lawns. The house and grounds are very elegant but I still felt at... More
