I had never heard of "Glen Aros" when Jacqui Spice recommended it to me. Upon a little further research we decided that it would be the ideal place to finish of our three week stay in NZ. I was not wrong , from the moment you arrive your hosts Meg&Rob and the wonderful executive chef Nigel make you feel at...

We had such a great stay at the lodge.

Our hosts Meg and Rob were so hospitable and went beyond to make our stay very comfortable. The place is very...

The lodge has quite extended facilities such as billiards table, pool with spa and a small fitness Center.

We drove through miles of parched, brown countryside (at the time of our visit) and entered a Garden of Eden - green, watered lawns, fragrant rose gardens, neatly clipped low hedges, drifts of colourful flowers, all beautifully kept.

“there are not many rooms, 6 in total, so the one you get is fine, they are all quiet, as there is just nature around you!”

“We have stayed in the Glencoe suite on three occasions and have found it to be very comfortable. The room is spacious and bathroom facilities are excellent. The bed is very comfortable, with lovely linen, and the rooms always have fresh flowers from the garden. On another occasion we stayed in the Tiree suite. This room is lovely with a large bathroom. The location of the estate is quite remote so there is no intrusion of outside noise to distract from the peacefulness and serenity of the surroundings. I would highly recommend either of these rooms.”

“We stayed the the Glencoe Suite which was very spacious and charming with a king bed which led onto a verandah. Would definitely recommend this room. As it is in the country there is no noise to worry about.”
