This place is absolutely outstanding. Simply everything about Greenmantle is world class. The rooms, the food, the service, the owners - everything is marvellous and makes you want to never leave. We stayed here for two nights immediately after our wedding and we are already craving being back so we can eat the Eggs Greenmantle (their signature breakfast dish, made... More

My husband and I were delighted to spend two nights at Greenmantle over Easter. Not only was it the Easter weekend but also our 46th wedding anniversary. Prior to going I had googled the Paraparaumu area for a lovely place to stay and Greenmantle came up. What a wonderful choice! Thank you Ralph and Letizia for making us so welcome,... More

After visiting several luxury Lodges on the North and South Island of New Zealand we found a place that is truly first class! Greemantle Estate Lodge embodies discreet and comfortable luxury. The Lodge is located within a lush and peaceful garden with natural vegetation. The meals are up to the highest standards and match any cuisine with top tier chefs.... More

After two weeks driving around New Zealand, it was like arriving to Rivendell when we saw the lush and peaceful garden of Greenmantle. And everything just got better and better with lovely rooms, bubbly drinks, delicious meals and fantastic company of Ralph and Leticia, which was really friendly but not too much so. That is something we reserved scandinavians really... More

It was a wonderful few days for us too as hosts to be able to enjoy meeting your party and being an element of your New Zealand adventure. You opened our eyes and understanding of Finland. Thank you for your kind positive reflections. More

Having now stayed twice at Greenmantle we feel like telling others about this delightful experience. Hosts Ralph and Letizia were welcoming with warm hearts and good humour. The facilities lived well up to expectations for this class of accommodation and the meals were also delightful. Greenmantle is not far from a busy thoroughfare but the guests are shielded from the... More

We stayed at Greenmantle for Valentine's Day, and it was perfect. The hosts are friendly and welcoming and make you feel at home. The room (Silver Beech) was beautiful, and enjoyed the per-dinner drinks with other guests followed by a first class dinner. The Jacuzzi in the woods is a great way to end the day. Made for a great... More

What a beautiful estate Greenmantle is! Lush and green with marvelous gardens and absolute attention to detail everywhere you look. I was there for a wedding this past weekend and everything was so beautifully done. With Ralph we couldn't have been in better hands. He sat us down to a delicious lunch, much of it locally sourced and was just... More

Our daughter's wedding was held at the Greenmantle 7th of February 2015. We had the most glorious wedding, perfect venue, wonderful hosts, fabulous food all set in an intimate setting in the glorious Kapiti sunshine. Ralph was the perfect host and the whole day went without a problem. We highly recommend this venue if you want a perfect intimate wedding.... More

We stayed three nights in Pohutukawa suite. Our aim was to visit Kapiti Island. Unfortunately there was some problem with the booking we had made ourselves. Ralph came to the rescue and three phone calls over a glass of wine sitting in the nikau forest solved the problem and we were booked for the next day. Our room was delightful... More

Wonderful friendly helpful hosts. We had a most enjoyable family stay here and we made the most of the beautiful spacious surroundings, the pool and the spa in the Nikau forest. Our room was very comfortable and the meals delicious. We also thoroughly enjoyed the Otaki rafting trip organized by Ralph. A truly lovely place to stay.
