The lodge make is simply beautiful. Its an antique artwork that will need to be preserved in the great condition the hosts have kept it.

I stayed at the Pohutakawa Suite and was so blessed by the bed, so comfy, the amenities and facilities that met my needs and wants and a beautiful view, to also look at from the private Spa outside and be seranaded with Birdsong. It was lovely to come back to this after being at the Aims Games. Money worth spending for my health and well-being and great kiwihosts that will cook tasty big breakies on request and point out places to visit or dining. Location of this Lodge was central to everything, but I was happy to just stay there. Ma te wa.
