Absolutely beautiful gardens, relaxing and peaceful. Friendly and helpful hosts. Stayed in the cottage which was lovely, rustic and quiet...home away from home. The cottage was apparently the first building to be erected at LaValla in the 1920’s - it’s charm reflective from that era. There were basic cooking facilities in the kitchen, an open fireplace, and beautiful cottage gardens surrounding. Close to Auckland approx 45 mins. Would definitely stay again.

We couldn't get accommodation closer to the airport for our early flight and the few hotels left had become exorbitantly priced. This hotel was an easy 45 min drive to the airport early next day, and was very comfortable, quiet and in beautiful surroundings. Reasonably priced and good value. The manager told us of the history of the site and when dining at the pub nearby I found it was the town where Sir Edmund Hillary grew up. Very comfortable- thank you!

Nice atmosphere in little cottage.

Pros: Friendly, nice atmosphere
Location: We were only there for one night to attend a funeral in Tuakau.
We stayed in Villa 1. Some more towel rails in the bathroom. A notice on the bathroom door warning of steps outside is urgently needed. Nice quiet place to stay, we didn't get a chance to check gardens and the new building out as only there overnight.
