We stayed 3 nights over Easter 2013. The restored cottage was very nice. Well insulated so cool in the day yet remained warm at night. Very comfortable for our family of 5. Well appointed, beautiful fresh linen. No trouble with insects due to auto insect spry dispenser.
Still close enough to Napier (about 35-40 mins) and Hastings to enjoy all they have to offer.
Was good to be able to use the tennis court and cool off in the pool.
Was treated to a very interesting farm tour on the Monday as well.
A very memorable holiday for all the right reasons.
