My partner and I stayed at the Lodge for one night recently, out of an original booking of 3 nights.
Chris and Colin are lovely, very relaxed and take life in their stride which is really refreshing and typically kiwi from our experience over the past 3 weeks.
We were upgraded to the Fyffe Suite from the Aston Suite which was a lovely gesture. Chris also actioned my request to have a bottle of wine and some flowers awaiting us for my partners 40th birthday. She arranged this perfectly which was great.
The property is very pretty and characterful with large open spaces in the dining and sitting areas. The breakfast that was served was a basic spread, but tasty.
On the downside for us personally, the property suffers from too much road noise, but we are used to living in a more rural environment. If you are from the city, you may not be so bothered by road noise, but it was far too loud for us and thus we checked out after first night, which Chris was very understanding of.
Another issue, after the road noise, is the price. Whilst the Fyffe Suite is fantastic and spacious, at NZD 600+ for that room (although we paid NZD 465 in line with Aston Suite) it is around NZD 200 per night too expensive looking at other local accommodation, when quality of finish, decor etc are taking into consideration.
This is a beautiful lodge and if location and road noise are not key drivers for you, Chris and Colin will look after you.
