Have just returned from Hawkes Bay where we spent a magical week with John and Christine at Greenhill Lodge. Our hosts were the most obliging and friendly couple you could ever hope to meet and our stay with them was wonderful. The house and grounds are magnificent and stately, yet you feel relaxed and at home from the minute you arrive. Christine's cooking (especially her baking!) is fabulous and there is always a fresh banana cake or berry muffin to be enjoyed. Nothing is too much trouble for them. There is a pool and a billiard room for those wanting to take advantage of some of the extras available, but sitting on the beautiful verandah reading a good book with a freshly brewed cup of their home-blended tea is just as enjoyable. All the food is fresh and delicious and there is plenty to choose from. Our room had beautiful views through the french doors and lovely, ornate high ceilings. The bed was extremely comfortable and there was always a piece of slice or cake and fresh fruit in our room and a chocolate on the pillow each day. we have travelled through many parts of the world but have never stayed anywhere better. We look forward to returning to Greenhill Lodge again and again.
