Seems to me that everyone else has told you plenty about how good this place is. And how it's good because the people who run it not only know what they're doing, but love what they're doing. Get John to show you round the gardens and have a listen to how proud he is of the place and how much... More

We stayed with friends for one night at this lovely lodge. The place is very nice and comfortable in a very well set up in a beautiful area of rural NZ. The lodge is well done up with lovely details.

A wonderful, beautifully restored lodge in the lush hills outside Hastings. John and Christine are the perfect hosts and chefs. We stayed in the separate cottage with the outdoor bathtub. My wife was gorgeous in it with a glass of fabulous wine from the region. Being dog owners Nessie relieved our dog withdrawal. Kudos, John and Christine. We'll be back.... More

A truly extraordinary property, superb hosts and total peace and quiet are the hallmarks of Greenhill Lodge. Go there to truly get away from it all. And make a point of dining there at least once - the food is excellent and the setting is perfect.

A memorable three days in winter. This beautifully restored property is a delight and our hosts, Christine and John (not forgetting Nessie the "Boss"), could not have been more welcoming or hospitable.

We stayed for only one night at Greenhill Lodge but wish we had planned more time with John and Christine.
