Stayed at this beautiful lodge last week. We had a wonderful stay with the best hosts Garth and Angie. Between them they provided us with excellent accommodation, food wine and local knowledge. Most of all they were fabulous company. Thank you

We were greeted and shown to our room - the Tongariro Room - by Garth. The room was lovely - very comfortable with nice linen and had direct access to the outside. The canapés (homemade by Angie) and drinks before dinner were a treat and the pizza in front of the fire couldn’t have been better on a cold night. Breakfast was probably one of the best we’ve had anywhere - a credit to Angie as granola and jams were all made by her on site. Unfortunately we only had one night but will be happy to stay again when passing through the area.

Stayed here for a night away pre our busy season on farm. Angie and Garth are so lovely, and made us feel so welcome! The food was incredible, the accommodation was incredible, woke up in the morning in the most beautiful setting feeling so rested and relaxed and like we’d had an actual holiday instead of just a night. Will be booking again! Thanks so much! Jason and Kate
