My wife and I stayed in the lodge for a night to celebrate my wife's birthday. We enjoyed the peacefulness of Gladstone area and the lodge. Unfortunately we could not use the spa since it was shut due to COVID. Having said that, there were plenty of relaxing leisurely activities in the gardens (including the Lamas) that time flew so fast. The host booked us a seat in Gladstone Inn with complimentary transport. The hosts were welcoming and very sociable. The rooms were tidy and inviting. I would recommend anyone who has not been to Gladstone area to pay a visit and stay in this lovely place.

My husband and I stayed at the Summit Lodge on our way to Wellington. We had a beautiful room. It was spacious and everything about it was comfy. We were served wonderful breakfasts. They have a list of foods to eat for breakfast- everything you can imagine. You could order all of them!! We also contracted to have our dinners with them. We were served fantastic food and had great conversation. Tracey and Jim are excellent, interesting hosts.

My husband and I treated ourselves to an overnight stay for our 40th wedding anniversary. We had the accessible room due to my physical disability and found it very good. The bathroom worked very well and having the wet area shower just makes life so much easier, lovely fluffy towels too. The bed was very comfortable and having the heat pump kept the room lovely and cool overnight. The food was outstanding, we had a most enjoyable evening meal with two other guests and our delightful hosts Jim and Tracey. I thoroughly enjoyed the continental breakfast, including delicious homemade muesli. My husband very much enjoyed the cooked breakfast. Great coffee too. We spent time in the spa which was very nice. Tracey and Jim were wonderful hosts, they made us feel very welcome. We had a very enjoyable stay and have recommended it to our family and friends. We certainly hope to return at some stage

Idyllic location. Peaceful yet close to wineries and local Towns. Great hosts who made you feel welcome and involved to the extent you wanted. We had a really wonderful meal with them for the first night of our stay together with a wine accompaniment for each course. Included terrific cooked breakfasts, which were a great start to the day. We were fortunate to have the whole guest wing to ourselves but even had other guests been there it would still have been great.
