Oh So NICE
We stayed at the Chateu late October, it was part of a refresh the body after a few rough months. How do I describe, well one word PLEASANT, superb is so often used, but this was plain straightforward pleasant, nothing was too much trouble, the team in posh dining room, were great, the front desk was great, housekeeping was great, the pianist was great. Food quality was well up there with the best that we have encountered. The whole time there was just pleasant, just what we wanted, nothing gaudy, not in your face, just discrete service as it should be in a quality establishment. I actually felt sorry to leave, now that doesn't happen too often. Would we stay again, without a doubt. If was to get picky, we couldn't get TVNZ +1 on the TV in the room, was it an issue, NO, the good wifi made up for that.
Just had four nights here and once again had a lovely time. We haven’t been for a few years but always love going back. The meals were beautifully prepared and presented. A lot of thought and effort seemed to have been put in to each dish. The staff are just wonderful, attentive and friendly. The room was spacious but a bit hard to see into the wardrobe when looking for dark clothing. I used the light on my phone a few times. Also the bathrooms are now equipped with squeeze bottles on the walls for soap. It’s okay and I understand why but if you have arthritis I recommend taking your pump bottle of soap. High tea was nice, loved the attention to detail on the sweets. So nice to sit by the large window and look at the views. Evening time in the lounge is very relaxed and the pianist is entertaining. The sauna and spa are a nice way to unwind after a day out walking. We are looking forward to returning.
Thoroughly recommend High Tea at the chateau. Delicious treats and lots of options for teas. Wonderful surroundings, crackling fire and view of Mt Ngauruhoe. Staff very pleasant and attentive. Fabulous pianist.
High tea at the chateau
Very average high tea. Freshness questionable and for the cost, a complete let down. The chateau is an experience, and high tea is something special. The scones were not soft or fresh and they he cucumbers sandwiches tasted off. Very disappointing for $90.
Stayed at this hotel for 2 nights. The history decorations and feel of this hotel is worth the visit. Facility was clean. Great location. Staff were friendly. There are also Movies on i their thresher during the day good if you want to stay in. The view was amazing outside the balcony- especially during sunset. I would highly recommend
