We absolutely enjoyed our stay at Crindau Lodge and would love to go back again!
It is a really special place from the moment you arrive in which every detail has been carefully thought through - starting from the long driveway that leads you through a taste of New Zealand bush to the homely lodge decorated with fairy-lights.
Our hosts were a lovely family that were very accommodating - we arrived late at night and they had prepared the lodge for us, leaving the lights on, bottled cold water in the fridge and even free-range eggs from their chickens. In the morning we were informed about all the local activities, walks and places near by.
The place was well-equipped with essentials and more. We loved all the personal touches i.e. the fluffy bathrobes, cups on the dresser, fresh flowers in vases, books, pacific themed rooms, information folder with all the need to know information about the lodge, activities and local eateries etc. Rooms and furnishings were spacious, comfortable and well-presented.
It was raining for half of the time we were there and we would have liked to stay longer to enjoy more of what the location had to offer - especially to go for a picnic that was a short bush walk from the lodge to their orchard which had a spectacular view of the area.
