We celebrated two family birthdays at Blanket Bay over the weekend. From making the booking through to departure, everything was perfect.
We arrived by helicopter with Heliworks after a trip to the Earnslaw Burn, this was an excellent way to arrive. We were welcomed by the lovely staff on the lawn and one of the couples was returning guests and this was acknowledged which made them feel special.
We stayed in the Chalet with the shared Stateroom which was perfect for our family occasion. The rooms are beautifully appointed and the main lodge is absolutely stunning and the scale of everything is awe inspiring.
You are certainly made to feel like you are in somebodies house (a grand one at that) and you can make yourself at home, we really enjoyed this approach and you could immediately relax.
We enjoyed quite possibly the best meal we have ever experienced and the Chef Corey Hume is to be commended for his beautiful menu of fresh and local produce. The breakfast the following morning was also 10/10.
The only downside was we weren’t there for long enough, definitely a 3+ night destination and we will certainly be back.
Every visitor and New Zealander who appreciates excellent service and beautiful accommodation should have Blanket Bay on their list.
Thank you to all the team at Blanket Bay for a wonderful weekend and looking after us so well!
