We stayed at Bronte Country Estate as part of our wonderful 3 week tour of the South Island and this was, without a doubt, the most memorable place we stayed.
A very warm welcome from Daniel as we arrived and we were shown to our fantastic suite overlooking the estuary. The room was very stylishly decorated and exceptionally clean with great facilities in the small kitchen.
Fabulous touches like the decanter of sherry and the complimentary local beer and sparkling wine chilling in the fridge and of course the scrumptious home made cookies replenished every morning, a great touch.
Daniel was the perfect host, we arrived late afternoon and he had already made a provisional booking for dinner for us at the Apple Shed (great, fun, informal place to eat )
The breakfasts were wonderful; home cooked local produce in the great surroundings of the Homestead. I would recommend this property to anyone visiting the South Island, it is one of the best properties I have stayed in.
