Hi Jonathan H, Thank you for taking the time to review your recent stay. I am delighted you have enjoyed the services and facilities of Tirimoana House.

Exceptionally warm, welcoming, individualised service supported by incredible attention to detail and Chris and Michelle's charm and personal interest would make Trrimoana a woderful experience. Add furnishings that work, views over the inlet and Michelle's skill in the kitchen for an unforgettable experience.

A very relaxing night away. In a beautiful spot. We had the Sunrise Room which had a beautiful view of the water. Your hostess Michelle is warm and welcoming and a fantastic cook. Satisfied overall, room in need of some new wallpaper but minor complaint. Very close to the beginning of the Queen Charlotte track. Would stay here again. :)
