We thoroughly enjoyed our 3 nights in The Loft. It was very well appointed, spotless and offered all the comforts of home. The addition of extra little touches made all the difference eg homemade muesli and tasty jams, yummy warm individual bread and butter puddings delivered to the door early evening and chocolate treats left in the room after servicing....

It was bliss to come back to The Loft after a long wet day rowing on Karapiro. The Loft had everything you could possibly need and more including a fantastic continental breakfast (i'll definitely be attempting to make that muesli and the lemon curd was to die for!), diverse selection of movies, wonderful collection of bathroom products and a comfortable...

We stayed one night in 'The Stall' on our way back to Auckland for a flight home. Perfect overnight stay.

Beautiful setting and very friendly host. Unfortunately we weren't staying long or able to spend much time at the accommodation so the Stall room was great for us.

Both Stables are self-contained luxury lodges, that comprise of a fully equipped kitchen, spacious lounge & dining area, beautiful bedroom, & a luxurious bathroom - all kept warm & toasty with brand new heat pumps French doors off the bedroom & the lounge open out onto a large private deck - the perfect spot for a glass of wine while taking in the stunning views of the surrounding hills. The pool complex is directly out the front Stable door & includes a large tiled swimming pool & a bubbling hot Jacuzzi. A few feet away is the wonderful sauna room.
