We decided to stay here as I have heard good things, not the cheapest place but rooms are huge and ample space in the bathroom. only downside was the rooms were outdated and the pillows were almost non existant - both my husband and I woke up with sore necks. the spa on the deck was lovely though :)

When you want to stay somewhere that has huge rooms , quiet rooms and pure luxury. Bathroom has a double spa bath . It is away from Hanmer so no hassles .We have stayed here before and it is well worth the money.

We stayed in room 19, private & well appointed. We paid extra for a room with a view but it was foggy the whole time unfortunately. The restaurant and spa were both fantastic, and the experience was effortless & exactly what we needed to break up a long drive Carol was amazing, super helpful as were all the staff

We stayed the first weekend of October for a romantic weekend gateway and it was fantastic. We had the Deluxe Room with a spa bath (Epsom salt with lavender provided) and a private hot tub on our balcony. The view was breathtaking over the mountains and we had lots of privacy. The double King bed was super comfy with duck... More

Firstly - from reading the previous review, there is absolutely no need for underfloor heating in any of the bathrooms, maybe use the slippers supplied? The rooms are MORE than warm enough with two forms of heating. We were lucky to be able to check-in ultra early as our suite was ready, on arrival, we were welcomed to the Lodge... More
