Staying at the Waiorau Homestead was a perfect choice and most definitely a first class experience. The owners Ann and Blyth are so wonderful and make you feel at home and welcome at their amazing place. The views are stunning of the countryside. There is a pool and a hot tub. The food they cook for you is incredibly good. If you want a place to relax and have gold service, Waiorau Homestead is the place you have to choose. I was traveling with my sister and two friends and this was the best place we stayed on our 2 week trip.
