Spent a lovely 2 nights in twin room with a friend. Just delighted with everything. Tracy and Jim are such great hosts. Thanks for the drinks and home made nibbles each evening. Breakfast and home baking a testament to Tracy's fantastic culinary skills.

Immaculate, luxurious and spacious rooms and guest lounge. The heated spa nestled in lush natural flora under the wairarapa sun was pure bliss. Tracey and Jim are exceptionally customer oriented and anticipate your every need ...even the background music at breakfast and inviting my overseas friends to feed the alpacas. The fresh organic eggs, homemade spreads using fresh grown produce... More

The lodge has beautiful surroundings with park like gardens and is only a short drive to many local places of interest. The room we stayed in was well appointed and quiet. Well we were the only guest there. Our host Jim and... More

The Summit is a really great place to stay, lovely setting and excellent hosts. Had a splendid evening platter on arrival and a great breakfast. Definitely a relaxing stay and ideally situated to visit the region including Greytown and Martinborough. Hope to return soon.

These lovely people had a delicious meal waiting for me when I arrived on a wet night after a long day. The weather had just turned unseasonably cold and I was so cosy and comfortable here.

Thank you Diana. Loved having you here and putting the world to rights over dinner! Yes, the middle room is very sheltered from the weather so in a southerly it is perfect. The Rimu room at the back is more private when other guests are booked in - and it is wheelchair accessible. Other than that, all three rooms are... More

We had a great time at the Lodge. Tracey and Jim were excellent hosts, with helpful information about the area and excellent conversation over breakfast. The breakfast was generous and well prepared. The facilities are very comfortable, the garden a marvel despite the near drought. We hope to be back.

A very relaxing and comfortable place to unwind. Great hosts and animal family. One night not long enough. Only criticism is the misleading name; you can see and drive to summits but you are not on one! Apart from that couldn't fault it.
