    Our family of five spent two nights at the Factory and just loved it. Felt like home away from home. Very comfortable and beautifully decorated. Janet and Paul are great hosts. If we ever come back to New Zealand we'd definitely visit The Factory again!

    Absolutely incredible. The house, the food, the hospitality and the surrounds just cannot be faulted. A must-stay if you're in the area. Paul and Jenny are passionate, knowledgable and so very welcoming. And the house- once a dairy- is an absolute masterpiece inside and out....More
