We chose Straw Lodge after reading the numerous TA reviews where people gushed about their stay and we weren't disappointed. We stayed for 3 nights and Nettie, Jane and Bill (and Texas) were fabulous hosts!! Jane's meals were delicious and Nettie was full of suggestions of things to do each day. If you can, order the vineyard platter (full of cheeses, meats, breads, etc.) and try to take advantage of a dinner at Straw Lodge. We enjoyed a dinner with another couple staying there and had such a good time with them and our hosts. It also gives you an opportunity to enjoy more of the Churton wine (grapes from Straw Lodge property grown for this label). It was great to wake up next to the vines and see all the beautiful stars overhead at night. No other place we stayed at on our 2 week trip to NZ was able to top the environment and hospitality that we experienced at Straw Lodge.
