Mike and Mary were wonderful, extremely helpful and friendly. We booked over the Lorenzo website and Mike was quick to respond with confirmation and extra information for our trip. The room was great, spotlessly clean and the spa was fantastic after a big day. We were also impressed with the lovely bathroom products provided, they were a really nice touch.... More

During our three weeks in NZ we stayed in quite a few places and this was by far the nicest. We were made very welcome by Mike on our arrival. The rooms were lovely - comfortable sofa, comfortable bed, a great spa bath. We'd definitely stay again and would recommend it to friends.
