We arrived at Highden Manor and were greeted by the Manager Steve Smith. Steve is a real people person, a very capable Manager and made us feel so important. He gave us a brief history of the Manor, showed us our absolutely fabulous room (The Highden Room) and the rest of the Manors facilities. The Degustation Dinner was superb and would match and even better some of those we have experienced in Auckland. If you would like a "Trip back in the Past" and a stay in Exquisite Luxury do experience this at Highden Manor.
