The first of four B&Bs that we stayed in the Hawkes Bay, Wairarapa & Central North Island region - and this was definitely the pick of the bunch. We stayed for three nights in the Venice suite and enjoyed a peaceful stay with gorgeous fluffly robes and divine furnishings. Our hostess Yvonne left no stone unturned with superior hospitality, local area knowledge and an extensive breakfast menu. The Lodge has been sympathetically restored with exquisite decor as well as a few modern touches. The views from the breakfast dining area were amazing and gave us a good indication of what the weather held in store for us that day. Yvonne recommended some excellent outings - a fantastic winery/progressive dinner tour, italian restaurant and local amenities. We indulged ourselves in a game of billiards one evening in the the fabulous games room. I would heartily recommend this lodge to anyone who enjoys 5 star accommodation with a touch of history.
