What a lovely place - the rooms are huge, nicely equpped - no TV but there is Wifi. Really good food -you can table share if you want to - lovely bar for a drink - all with fabulous views of the river. Super staff to help too. There are walks you can do yourself with cheat notes in the various plants and trees or go with Gerry and really learn about NZ and its native species - he was so interesting - we even started bird watching! Plus there are kayaks to go out in the lake - which is like a mirror and utterly beautiful - yes its expensive but we budgeted a few cheaper motels before and after to justify the expense.
