We stayed at Clearview Lodge for regrettably only one night, as we were traveling through to Blenheim for the Classic Fighters Air Show.
However, in that time we were made to feel very much at home by both Robin and Sue - beginning with a very welcome afternoon tea with freshly baked homemade cake on our arrival, followed by a luxurious spa in the outdoor pool area to help us unwind from our flight.
We stayed in the beautiful well appointed Braeburn Room which had many special thoughtful touches - from the toweling bath robes to the fruit and chocolate platter, and selection of toiletries. This ground level suite opened out to their lovely outdoor area overlooking the well tended vineyard - source of their delightful Pinot Noir.
Breakfast was a gourmet experience with Robin's perfectly cooked eggs benedict on top of home smoked salmon, followed by Sue's homemade jams and preserves.
We really felt at home with Robin and Sue sitting down to breakfast with us, and chatted as old friends.
We were sad to leave, but will certainly return there the next time we are in Christchurch.
Definitely a wonderful experience and one which we will be recommending to our friends.
