I don't often give 5 stars but Bronte is exceptional. We had a separate suite overlooking the tidal lagoon with outside deck. A peaceful oasis a short drive from Nelson near Mapua. Host Margaret met us on arrival and escorted us to the suite. Dinner had been pre booked for us at a local restaurant on the Mapua wharf. Breakfast...
