What a way to spend our last night in New Zealand
This is a very special place. We were treated individually and made to feel important from the moment we arrived. Nothing was too much trouble including having our boots cleaned and meeting our dietary requirements at dinner. The building, bedroom and views were all stunning. The ambience feels very exclusive and there was a mass of facilities. We almost felt we were part of a dinner party rather than paying guests. The food was delicious and creative and it was lovely sitting outside. So if money is no object, or you want a real treat, then this is the place to stay in this area.
