I agree with Preposterous. The view is outstanding, the nibbles delightful, the breakfast excellent, the hosts considerate.
But is there a touch of hubris? Yes. Is this value for money on any test? No, I don't think so - and I am comparing with other top of the range NZ lodges we used on our visit. We didn't pay anything like the Acacia Cliffs rates anywhere else and others had more amenities (and even views that could compete).
To cap it all, it left a really sour taste to be charged an exorbitant price for two bottles of sparkling water - one of which we asked for but never even got!
Think hard before you book, unless money really is no object.
