This place was so amazing!!! Wonderful hosts, lovely lovely rooms!! Fantastic food, would be very happy to go back!! Made us all feel like a part of the family! Loved every minute. Lots of lovely walks, and a nice beach close by. Good surf break close by, close to New Plymouth, if traveling past totally worth the stop in!!!

My partner and I stayed at Stony River Hotel for three nights. Every aspect of our stay was perfect. The food, the mountain view, the room, and of course, the amazing hosts. We would (and will) gladly make the drive from Wellington to stay there again!

Gracious hosts, Renate and Heimo could do no wrong. Superb hospitality, and the home cooked meals were absolutely excellent. Two family members are GF, and Heimo took special care to ensure there were no worries. The menu choices were mouth-watering - breakfast and dinner! We will definitely be returning to this wonderful boutique experience.
