We stayed for a week here between Christmas and New Year. We booked a villa for five for the family. It is a beautiful place with views over the golf course to the sea and white sand dunes. The villa was well laid out, very clean, slightly dated appliances but otherwise very nice. We ate a few times at the... More

We are touring the NZ nth island & dined at the Karikari Estate Winery, part of the Peppers Carrington property, on Jan 2. We arrived at the winery and our first impression was what a spectacular view! We sat down & the menu looked ok, we even thought we might come back again...then...the waiter arrived & warned us a 15%... More

We were looking forward to a lovely weekend away. We booked to stay for a night. The hotel is far away from anywhere so we planned to relax at the hotel & eat all meals there. Our 1st meal at the winery was below average. Our dinner was average. The breakfast the following day was so disgusting, we had to... More

I was really impressed when we drove up to the resort with beautiful grounds, the rooms were tidy & well supplied. Overall the food experience could improve, both dinner at the pizzeria & breakfast the next morning were poor although the waiter was great.

The room was really nice and quiet with a view of a golf course. I booked it on line and it was not what I expected. It was several kilometers from Kaitaia and did not have cooking facilities. Meals were pricey but we ate in town and/or ate foods that did not have to be cooked. It would have been... More

I normally go on about getting what you pay for and if you want the best expect to pay for it, however every now and then you will find a gem a bargain and this is the case here. OK so it's in need of some updating in places but on the whole it's fantastic, the golf course is world... More

Beautiful location, had excellent during our stay there. Excellent Golf Course, first nine has a number of hidden shots which could do with more location pointers so one knows where to aim, 4th Hole in particular. Stayed in Lodge, room was average, not well laid out, heat pump should be more centrally placed. Bathroom is not well appointed, expect to... More

We had an amazing weekend at Carrington. It was a quiet weekend there but that suited us. The staff were excellent, very friendly and accommodating. The food was great the views and facilities really good. The décor might be a bit dated. If you are a golfer it is a must play. We had the course to ourselves for a... More

Nice views over golf and bay. Very clean. Restaurant with spectacular views and good food and service. However ageing decor here as well. Open kitchen has good chefs... More

We had booked and paid for this resort 5 months ago, and were a little disappointed on arrival to find ourselves in a dark corner room with no view of the beautiful surroundings and right on the pathway from reception to the bar / restaurant.
