They say never mix business with pleasure but on a recent trip to work at the Art Deco festival in Napier I decided to take the family, only because I knew from a previous stay that the Colonial Lodge would cater for both my busy schedule and my teenager and two younger children 2/5. After working, the Colonial Lodge was a great place to come home to with it's beautiful gardens, tastefully decorated modern & comfortable rooms. Joining the kids splashing about in the swimming pool and then everyone into the luxurious spa pool was the best way to relax before dinner from the BBQ. Once the littlies were tucked up in bed we sat outside the room amongst the lovely gardens with a glass of the local wine of which there are many in Hawkes Bay. 5 minutes drive from Napier and 5 minute walk to Taradale centre, everywhere is easy to get too if you are sightseeing. All in all a thoroughly enjoyable and pleasing place to stay with the icing on the cake as Mark the proprieter and his lovely staff. Stay here or miss it!
