Te Popo Gardens is a treat. Hosts very obliging and friendly. Accommodation commodious and comfortable. Gardens a delight. The dogs make good tour guides. A reasonable distance from Stratford and Mt Egmont. We extended our stay by one night because of a big storm and were glad we did. Unfortunately the area lost power for 24 hours but with the...

Te PoPo Gardens Wonderful 34 acre property, with loads of room to wander. For the garden lover - it would be paradise. Apartments are pre year 2000, but very clean, lovingly provisioned and our hosts are most friendly and obliging. Everything is provided. There is no mobile or wireless connection and it is a good drive from the town and... More

We had the apartment for our stay in Te Popo, which has a separate upstairs lounge, with a bedroom downstairs, this is quite a bit larger than the other rooms. Very nice and clean, with full kitchen facilities, well furnished with a very comfortable bed. Quite a long way from anywhere, nearest rather basic pub/restaurant is a 15 minutes drive.... More

What a fantastic part of NZ and beautiful place to stay whilst there. The Ellises have four large, very comfortable ensuite rooms, with all the special touches you want in a room, and you feel like you are the only people there. Great, tasty breakfast in a lovely conservatory, and then a wander about the gardens, and you could find... More
