We stayed at Ormlie on the 4thleg of a driving tour of the north island. From the moment we arrived the warm and friendly staff went out of their way to make our stay comfortable. Nothing was a problem - they even drove us into town when we had a flat tyre! Our room was beautiful, opening out onto the... More

The suite itself was stunning, beautiful Italian furniture, linen, European atmosphere with a bathroom complete with roll top bath, great shower and underfloor heating. We spent some time in the...

Gorgeous bed, all very luxurious- lovely bathroom, very glad to have the underfloor heating on the tiles! Large shower with wonderful water pressure. Friendly, attentive staff. French doors opened onto balcony to sit and listen to birds in the morning.

There were a few little maintenence things in our room....but this is a really big old building so I didn't feel at all let down by these insignificant things. Dinner and breakfast was great,...

They make you feel as if you are guests in their home. The lodge is classic Victorian, recently updated and in superb condition. The accommodation plan includes breakfast and dinner prepared and served by a staff... More

Beautiful old lodge with loads of history and character. Rooms have been refurbished, in keeping with age of lodge, but lovely modern bathrooms. Staff could not have been more helpful. Especially Jeff the manager. Grounds and gardens with trees over 100 years old. We will come back here again. Very handy to cycle trails.
