We stayed at the lodge for the first few days of our honeymoon. We were jetlagged after traveling from Boston, MA, USA and were so grateful to have such a lovely place to relax after our journey. We were the only guests and were bumped up from a smaller room to the largest room. Since we were the only guests we had the whole place to ourselves, including an office and laundry room. There were also multiple sitting areas and lounges for us to use as we pleased. One sitting room in particular was our favorite for afternoon tea.
Our hosts were lovely. We had a tasty breakfast each morning, lots of useful information about our surroundings and places to eat, and as mentioned above, they made us feel very welcome. It was the best possible place for us to get over our jet lag and get acclimated to New Zealand. Thanks for a great stay!
