Te Kiteroa is a grand old country home built by wealthy Canterbury grandees of the nineteenth century. - surrounded, of course, by charming gardens. It is very well set up for visiting guests, and the hosts are charming. We enjoyed the whole 'being there" experience. Drinks out in the garden, reading in a fine old drawing room, relaxing an an...

We were welcomed by Gary and Ann, who are excellent hosts. We were upgraded to a turret room which had amazing far reaching views. After a brilliant wine tasting session at the Cellar Door for 1.5 hours we retreated to a private dining room for an excellent supper. Would loved to have stayed longer to explore the beautiful garden, enjoy...

We were welcomed by our lovely hosts, and looked after extraordinarily well. The food was excellent, great breakfast. The house is spectacular and when we asked about its history they took time to explain and showed us around. Lovely spa pool outside. Well worth the visit and we plan to go back.

We had the Phillips Turret room and were encouraged to Gary and Ann to explore and get to know the house and property. We were very happy to do so and felt completely at home also strolling in the beautiful gardens and adjacent vineyard.

I had the privilege of staying at Te Kiteroa Lodge with my Mum and husband Joop over the Christmas period at the end of December 2015.

Without a doubt the world-travelled hosts were friendly and welcoming and went out of their way...

Glad you enjoyed most of the stay. Sorry about the hot water pressure but Govt regulations say we shall have a tempering valve so we dont scald our guests. Our system is a low pressure base and they really do drop the hot water pressure to levels whereby at times the cold water pressure overpowers the hot. Pipework is all...

We were fortunate to stumble across Te Kiteroa by mistake. We had a team of 5 working in the area for a week and there was no accommodation available for the duration in Oamaru where we normally stay. What a treat, a beautifully restored character building adequately modernised but without destroying the feel. Morning chorus of bellbirds and tuis watching...
