This hotel is somewhat hard to find (well into the rural outskirts of Wellington) and curiously located next to a Christmas tree farm down a long rough gravel drive.
We got a reasonably good room rate of £145 DBB for one of their garden-facing rooms, and were very pleased with everything overall. Public areas very good, nice wood panelled bar etc. Our room was quite large and plush. Bathroom was somewhat more basic and was carpeted (a personal pet hate of mine in any hotel anywhere).
Food is excellent, gardens very pleasant. (There is a sadly neglected walled garden adjacent to the ornamental gardens which would be so lovely if restored, though I guess it would probably serve no real function).
We were staying here as it served as a good staging post for a longer holiday, I'm not sure that you could regard it as a destination in its own right however, as there's not much to do (outdoor pool and tennis court apart).
