We started our Hawkes Bay trip here and it definitely exceeded our expectations. We had booked a cheap rate through wotif and turned up with our bikes on the back of the car so we were half expecting to be treated rather snobbishly. Instead, we were made to feel extremely welcome by Clair - and there was no issue about leaving our car there for the next few days while we were cycling around the region.
Our room was stunning, we started the evening with complimentary French champagne, and our 5 course dinner was superb. The restaurant is well worth coming to even if you aren't staying here (and they offer a pick up / drop off service).
While we couldn't afford/justify the usual hotel rates here, we will definitely return if we can get similar discount rates in future - and stay more than one night next time.
