What a great introduction to NZ! We were made to feel especially welcome and having flown half way round the world, we entered a relaxed, luxurious, easy going holiday with a gourmet twist. What fantastic food! Can't say enough about how good the food was - still thinking about it now, a year later!
Rooms beautiful - what the New Zealanders call a heritage building. V comfy bed!
Also extremely helpful host who pointed us in the right direction for things to do after our stay.
Not much going on around the lodge in walking distance, unless you want to pick fruit, but the pool and games room were the relaxed introduction we needed to get our holiday off to an amazing start.
The a la carte breakfast is a must!
