Wonderful place. The room was big and beautiful. The breakfast was stunning and the hosts just great. In addition it was very quiet. So, we recommend it to everybody and we will come back a next time!

A wonderful haven of peace & natural beauty, only improved by the wonderful charm of our hosts. We first stayed here in 2005 and December 2010 was our third visit. We will certainly be back again.

They were also a mine of information on activities... More

We loved our stay at Aoturoa! It is nestled with a stunning backdrop right next to the river. Along with the beautiful natural surroundings it has luxurious rooms and we truly felt looked after and spoilt with the deep baths, new zealand products and the personal hospitality of Jon and Lesley. They catered for my vegeterian diet while my partner... More

The accommodation has sizeable rooms with excellent views from every window and all the amenities one would expect. The owners were friendly, helpful and very knowledgeable. On one of the days I stayed, I enjoyed a kayaking trip down the river that runs... More

"We have been regular visitors to Aoturoa since it opened. There is nowhere else on Earth where we can go to recharge our batteries so quickly and so fully. There is so much to do in the area and we absolutely love the friendly and warm hospitality of Jon and Lesley. Jon's cooking is a revelation and includes a lot... More
