Stayed a few days at Hoturoa with family and friends. Gorgeous, peaceful estate, with beautifully kept villas. Robert and Jane were lovely hosts and this was truly the highlight of our trip to New Zealand. We really enjoyed walking around the lake, talking and learning about the salmon hatchery from the Fish & Game guys. Look forward to returning soon.
Montrose Estate is a very special place. Stunning scenery from your accommodation, beautiful walks and so peaceful and relaxing. A shirt drive into Methven and less than an hour to Mt Hutt for skiing. We stayed at the owner’s retreat (Hotorua) which is an amazing house with unbelievable views (especially of sunrise). The house is luxurious and fully self-contained with all the trimmings. Couldn’t ask for anything else. The property manager Rob is a great guy and super helpful. We will be back!

We stayed at the 3 bedroom house, Paewaka lodge; one of three different types of accommodation. It is located in a brilliant part of the country, stunning views, well set out house, everything provided that could be needed, including a bar and wine fridge, and is so spacious. It is close to a multitude of tourist destinations such as: jet boating, helicopter rides, golf courses, walks, kayaking, small towns with great food and if needed a great place just to chill out. Robert was a big help and answered all our questions and assisted us when we needed it. We loved Roberts dog Poi, what a character he is. Really recommend, you won't be disappointed.
