We stayed four nights here during the week while on business in Palmerston North. A home away from home, beautiful surrounds, comfortable bed with lovely linen and Nespresso tea and coffee making in your room. Jan and David are very friendly and welcomed us into their lodge like old friends. They have an extensive library and fascinating Scottish colonial settler family history that they shared with us. There is also a massage room and day spa so be mindful that others will be using the property while you are there but we were lucky to have the place to ourselves for two of the four days. Next time we will come back in the weekend and enjoy using the day spa facilities.

We only had the opportunity to spend one night here, however we were looked after so well by Jan and David. The spa treatments were very relaxing, well appointed bedroom with en-suite and private outdoor area. The late night out door spa pool experience complete with open fire and candles was tres romantic. Breakfast was lovely. A very nice overall experience and a great chat with the ‘Hiwinui Stud’ 😉. Would 100% recommend to the discerning traveler. Very personal treatment.
