We stayed here for 2 nights with 3 kids over Xmas holidays. We found the place to be charming and beds were very comfy. The grounds are lovely and kids enjoyed exploring them. The food on main dinner menu was pretty expensive which made us reconsider eating there for the whole stay. But the breakfast was a clear winner - very good value and size plates!

The location is stunning and the room was very neat & tidy. Was surprised there was no fridge in the room. Some of our supplies for the trip around the South Island spoiled as a result. The bar was well stocked and loved sitting beside the fire.

Amazingly relaxing property. Excellent staff. Top notch quality restaurant serving City style food! But also great pub grub next door. We loved it all but found that no table/ desk and no chairs in room made it hard to do emails etc. Rooms spotless and walk in shower with plenty of hot water. Would go back for sure.
