We stayed at Blanket Bay for a relaxing weekend and could not have asked for anything more. The scenery is beautiful, the lodge is stunning and has a very relaxed atmosphere, the staff couldn't have been better without being over-bearing and the food was also great.
Having read a recent review on Eric, we can confirm we found him helpful and friendly at all times (perhaps the previous guest mistook his French attitude for redeness).
Obviously it is very pricey but you certainly get what you pay for and we will definitely be recommending it and going again.
Any overseas travellers, this is a must see if you want to experience New Zealand at its finest.
