We were welcomed warmly and soon felt part of the family rather than paying guests. This is a great location about an hours drive from auckland airport and in a beautiful location near vineyards. A good stop off after long flights. The rooms have been designed to provide everything a traveller needs with first class linens and fixtures. Breakfast is taken with the family and was good. Great Coffee offered at other times as well as your own supply of tea and coffee in the rooms. We would definitely return in the future.
