Wonderful accommodation with very friendly hosts, who offer valuable advise on area, tracks, history and happy to chat.
The rooms are extremely clean and tidy, offer all convenience and include little touches which reveal the caring and thoughtful hosts, including central heating, and flower arrangements as well as abundance in towels. You will need them, if you want to enjoy the highlight of the lodge: the wonderfully heated spa amongst the fern trees. We saw the milky way framed by silver ferns and romantic lighting leading up the spa pool which is so secluded you could think to be somewhere deep in the bush. It was such a treat after all day hiking, releasing all the tensions from sore muscles, before falling into the Egyptian cotton sheet and pillows covered beds which are so comfy that I felt like taking them with me.
Breakfast was delicious, the homemade jams and marmalade not to be missed.
It is a little drive to the next dinner places, but hey, this is a small price to pay for having this wonderful secluded, and peaceful place in NZ's amazing wilderness. Not to forget, 45 min drive to AKL CBD!!! What more do you want for a relaxing weekend or romantic getaway?
