The lodge itself is charming. Set back from the road on a beautifully maintained property, the building is open and inviting. The common areas were spacious and comfortable. Our suite was well laid out and appointed. The restaurant wasn't open on our first night, but the meal on the second was well worth waiting for, and featured local produce and an elegant wine list.
However, the staff are what really made the experience memorable. When we were there, the lodge was being run by a crack team of international hospitality experts that had been brought in for the renovation and launch under new management. They were very experienced in catering to guests, but had in their short time in NZ managed to cultivate a great deal of local expertise in terms of activities. We would not hesitate to visit again, and hope to seek out other such properties run by the same company.
