We had a warm welcome from Sylvain waiting for us on arrival helped us with our bags and offered us a tea or coffee. We had drinks in the lovely little bar and games room that night and good chats and a beer with Sylvan again. Hamurana lodge was so peaceful, with fabulous staff, and had a great feel and charm to the place, even in winter it was a great country escape from the busy Auckland lifestyle.
Loved meeting Merlin (the donkey) Lee (the goat) and feeding them apples which the kind staff would chop up for us. Our room was very warm and a lovely view. The under floor heating in the bathroom a plus. The rooms and estate are older but maintained well and added to the charm of the place. Make sure your order the platter, we had one on the Saturday night and they turned on the rugby game for us (Hurricanes) was to much food for two of us but enjoyed it all the same with a bottle of wine. Our two night stay wasn't enough, we will be back in summer for a visit so we can try out the pool!
Thanks again to the awesome staff!
