This was our second visit to Millhills Lodge and Sam and Penny once again exceeded all our expectations with their magnificent food, hospitality and stunning accommodation. On this visit, we stayed in one of the Lodge's three luxury studio cottages. Far enough from the Lodge for privacy, close enough to all facilities. Our super king-size bed was fitted with high-thread-count Egyptian cotton sheets, masses of pillows and a scrumptious cotton waffle-covered duvet. The en-suites are beautifully appointed with every imaginable guest amenity and the high-pressure shower is fed with multi-filtered rainwater. Bliss. Fluffy bathrobes and guest slippers are standard fare. Although you dine in the Lodge, each room has refreshment-making facilities with a superb range of teas, plunger coffee from the award-winning local roaster and stocked bar fridge. A new addition this time was the on-demand video library and free WiFi throughout the entire property – perfect for me to keep in touch with my business back in Hong Kong. We love Millhills Lodge. Penny and Sam are the perfect hosts for an exceptional stay in Hawke’s Bay. Highly recommended. The overall experience was first-class in every respect.
