We stayed here for three nights last November during a month's tour of New Zealand and the Cook Islands, and we cannot rate this jewel of NZ highly enough. The location, the rooms. the breakfast and most of all the hospitality cannot be beaten.
Firstly the location - just outside Nelson but with a magnificent view of the bay, and easy access to most of the area. The garden is a delight, and the perfect place for breakfast on the terrace, which in itself is a meal to savour, with so many choices it made choosing difficult, and the potential to stay there all morning. The room was equally palatial and really comfortable, with a lovely veranda - ideal for an end of day apperatif or two. Others have mentioned the toilet paper origami figures; so good we saved thembut in the end went and bought the book and have been practicing at home. The only things we didn't try were the pool or hot tub - the weather wasn't really warm enough unfortunately.
However, the outstanding hospitality marked Kimeret Place as exceptional. Gill is an excellent hostess, and the little touches all around the place really help to make you feel at home. Her expert knowledge of the local area helped us decide on what to do, where to eat and even sorted out a place for an anniversary dinner (before we arrived).
We wish we could have stayed longer - next time we will.
