We spent one night at this lovely B&B which was purposely built when the present owners extended the original homestead quite a few years ago. Ann and Blyth are great hosts and we enjoyed our stay in their delightful home.
We opted to eat out at the original Cardrona Hotel as we had been eating far too much on our drive around the South Island, but the two other couples who were staying at Waiorau at the same time as us, had one of Ann's delicious dinners which we heard about next morning. If you do stay at Waiorau, make sure you have very little to eat on the day of your arrival so that you can enjoy Ann and Blyth's wonderful hospitality.
Our room, the Kahurangi Room was very comfortable and it had a lovely terrace where we could sit and read. There is also a separate lounge with a huge TV and DVD's for the guests as well as a dining room. It is a very comfortable "home away from home".
