An idyllic treat for anyone who loves the finer things...
We know how important food can be to some people and that is why we have strived to find the best gourmet experiences available in Hawke's Bay.
We now offer a uniquely Kiwi High-Tea and a Mediterranean inspired Seafood Platter, both hosted at beautifully restored 19th Century country lodges.
What better way to celebrate a special occasion, treat a loved one or simply revel in luxury with good company. Whatever reason you find to indulge, we are sure you will want to toast and so we include a complimentary glass of the finest New Zealand bubbles!
Be picked up in style from your accomodation in one of our luxurious fleet of vintage & classic cars and take a step back in time as you tootle through our Art Deco City and beyond,
heading out either to the beautiful Mangapapa or Ormlie, both built in the final years of the 19th Century.
Mangapapa is one of Hawke’s Bays most prestigious properties, and one of the finest places to stay, dine or hold a wedding or function. Once the home of Sir James and Lady Wattie, this beautiful boutique hotel operates all year round treating both locals and visitors to the very finest that Hawke’s Bay has to offer.
Ormlie Lodge is the elegant former home of Gertrude Smith, built in 1899 by her wealthy father, William Nelson. With an impressive history, Ormlie Lodge is a beautiful hotel offering boutique accommodation, combining a little of Hawkes Bay’s old world charm with contemporary design and modern day comfort.
