Staying at or near a castle and to have dinner in a castle dining room has great appeal. It could be improved with a little more attention to customer service. In a "castle", you expect great service, right? Pros: Beautiful grounds, especially when everything was blooming, interesting house and history, absolutely beautiful setting, up on a hill overlooking the peninsula and harbor. Room had a great view, but they had just varnished and painted so the fumes woke me and I had to open the door and window to air it out, freezing my husband in the process. Dinner was pretty good, but had better elsewhere in NZ for less. Too long and drawn out, although I enjoyed hearing the story. Staff pleasant but nonchalant. Altogether just an average experience.
