We have been fortunate to visit New Zealand many times. Each time we have stayed in excellent places without too much concern for price.. McHardy lodge is our top stay for value and equals any place regardless of price. This trip, we were seven people, Wife and I, three sons and two daughter in laws. We felt at home in the luxurious rooms at McHardy even while we wee pampered by the care there. We will go back when we can spend a full week instead of only two nights and with a group of friends. Cant recommend it enough.
BTW, we suffered what turned out to be a minor health emergency while staying at McHardy.. though it did not feel minor at the time. Our Hostess helped my oldest son to understand the clinic and emergency room options, should we need them, and accompanied him to pharmacy to get some aids for my wife. turns out no emergency care was needed but i was greatly relieved to know the lay of the land. Just an example of the "home stay" care we received.
