The website for Mt Vernon Lodge was part of the selling point for my business group but we could not have been prepared for how much BETTER the reality was! That view! Wow! And the ability to sit around the open fireplace as a group to discuss business and strategise was wonderful. No matter how cold outside during winter, we met were so cosy both when meeting and in our accommodation rooms of the lodge. Aslo, a full complement of audio-visual tools are available.
We enjoyed the opportunity to self cater for breakfasts, with the well-equippted commercial kitchen right beside the meeting area. But also had the wonderful benefit of the Ma Maison Restaurant owner/chef coming on-site to prepare DELICIOUS meals. And we still planned to take the opportunity to enjoy the various tastes of meals at the nearby village restaurants. So for meals we had the best of three worlds! Flexibility is the by-word for this venue!
The other reason for choosing this place was the helpfulness of the manager on-line and even made contact by phone (international) to assist. But again, in person the manager was the same - nothing was too much for him.
I highly recommend this venue for family get-togethers and team development and business strategic planning etc. And the beautiful historical village of Akaora is just down the hill - so near!
