My wife and I recently had our third stay at Tiritiri Lodge,for four nights over Easter.We found the stay to be as wonderful as our first time.
The Lodge is in a quiet residential street five minutes drive from the small township of Wanaka.While not directly on the lake it affords magnificent views of surrounding mountains and the lake with a direct line over the lake to the Treble Cone ski area.The lodge is beautifully appointed in a luxurious but understated style.Our room was spacious,comfortable and the king sized bed extremely cosy.There was a common area in our wing with complimentary gourmet coffee and tea,soft drinks and wine and delectable cakes for afternoon tea.There is also a comfortable lounge and dining area in the main building where the delicious breakfast is served.There is also a spa and outdoor seating with a welcome fireplace for the cooler evenings.Dinner is available on request with the menu very flexible depending on your tastes and the season.Every evening,around six drinks are served in the lounge.Local wines ,champagne and delicious hors d'oeuvres tempt the palate.
However the best part of Tiritiri is the warm and gracious hospitality of its owners, Stephanie and Denis,who treat you like family and cannot do enough to make your stay as enjoyable as possible.Nothing is too much trouble, from advice on tours and walks, to restaurant reservations.Make sure you ask Denis to play a song on the imposing black grand piano!
We loved our stay and look forward to our fourth visit.
