This place amazes before you even arrive with a drive along remote scenic rural roads before reaching the security gates. You then enter the large estate and forests which predominate throughout.
The lodge and room facilities are second to none and the attention to detail is incredible.
Being a smallish lodge the staff soon get to know your name and thus you start to relax and feel like you are part of the team as everyone chat's about their day and what you are going to be up to next.
The meals were excellent and we found the staff to be extremely accommodating
Ok so you are paying top dollar but a stay here soon makes you realise why New Zealand has a great reputation for this type of accommodation.
Would absolutely recommend this lodge without hesitation to even my most discerning friends.
