Our room (#10) was huge, with wonderful antique furnishings. The lobby was furnished the same with comfortable seating for reading with a cup of tea or a wonderful gin and tonic from their range of NZ gins. The dinner was excellent.

8/10 Very good

Comfortable but overpriced
Very comfortable rooms and beds. Continental breakfast supplied but quite basic for overall price. For example no special muesli or porridge or different yoghurts. Would have appreciated plunger or machine made coffee. No cheese knives for cheese board. Dinner was good. Cheerful service

8/10 Very good

I don’t know about the other rooms on offer, but both our bedroom and bathroom were furnished with an array of antique furniture which looked attractive, but was not particularly convenient or user friendly.

8/10 Very good

Nice and cozy.
Clean hotel and restaurant. Spacious bathroom however airflow was non-existent therefore making the floor tiles extremely slippery and dangerous. Used the outdoor pool and spa. Very peaceful out there however there was a swarm of ants around the spa tub. Check out communication wasn’t so great. mentioned an 11am checkout however we were asked to leave earlier (around 10:30am on the day) due to the next guests checking in at 11:30am. They apologized for not letting us know but again, communication wasn’t great.
