Glen Aros Country Estate
Ranked #6 of 10 Hastings B&B and Inns
Reviewed 27 June 2012

Glen Aros is a rare gem! This is a beautifully presented country lodge in a rural situation with beautiful gardens. Meg the lodge host is truly charming and will ensure guests have a totally relaxed and pampered stay. The food is absolutely exceptional! A lot of produce is grown at the lodge and chef Nigel makes best use of this and locally sourced produce. A delightful and charming property. It is sure to be a trip highlight!

Reviewed 27 December 2011

We are so happy to finally have the opportunity to share our experience at Glen Aros with other Trip Advisor readers (they have only recently been listed here). Our 3 week vacation in New Zealand (February 2011) was memorable in so many ways. A highlight of this trip was the two days that we spent at Glen Aros. Meg and her husband Rob are the most gracious hosts and the estate's accommodations are superb. We stayed in the Glencoe Suite which had a very comfortable King size bed, luxurious bedding and great bathroom amenities. This estate has been renovated with impeccable taste and attention to detail. The gardens surrounding the house and the pool area afford lovely spots to relax with an afternoon drink and snacks. We are real foodies and the meals at Glen Aros left us overwhelmed! Chef Nigel Marriage tickled our taste buds with exquisitely prepared meals - each course better than the one before. Nigel's passion for cooking is evident and we so enjoyed our conversations with him. The food at Glen Aros was by far the best prepared and most inventive that we had in all of New Zealand. If you are in the Hawkes Bay area Glen Aros is a must!
