A chance finding on the internet took us to one of the highlights of our New Zealand and Australian tour, and certainly making our last night in NZ memorable. Our hosts, Chris and Lyn were not only charming and fun, but provided a relaxed and calm environment in which to wind down, after a long ride (don’t approach The Gables over the mountain road unless you have 4x4 and nerves of steel – I don’t know how our Toyota hire car did it!).
Not only did we have beautifully appointed bed and sitting rooms, with lashings of hot water in the shower, but we chose to have an evening meal instead of eating in yet another restaurant. What a wise choice this was, with excellent food and wine, followed the next morning by a top rate, all you can eat, breakfast.
We hope that our travels take us back to NZ since The Gables and Lyn and Chris will be our top spot to visit and stay.
