I love this place

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 23 Sept 2012
Staying here makes any trip to Palmerston North worthwhile. The accommodation is beautiful and the attention to detail makes it perfection. The hosts are friendly but not intrusive, and they make you feel so welcome. The spa treatments are a real treat. I have been back three times and would not hesitiate to stay again.

We recently stayed at this beautiful property, and enjoyed Jan's amazing gift for making and serving delicious food and warm hospitality. We felt welcolmed from the moment we arrived, and loved the magnificent entry way, restful decor and helpful travel advice. Jan has created a haven for travelers through her hard work and vision, - the garden is well worth a walk around, and the interesting Stewart family story is told through the photos and memoribilia beautifully framed on the walls of this amazing home. Jan is a perfectionist in all areas, and we felt so well taken care of and spoiled during our stay. Highly recommended.

I am a sales rep and had to stay in Palmerston for a couple of days, I usually stay in a hotel in town but decided to try Huinui. After working up and down New Zealand for the past 2 weeks I was extremly tired but by the time I left I was relaxed and re-energised.

A big part of my relaxation was a two hour treatment I had on my first night, full body massage and facial. Not to mention a soak in a private spa pool with glass of wine after dinner.

I loved every minute staying at Hiwinui and I am deffently coming to stay again.

We planned our stay at Hiwinui to introduce us to sheep country and break up the drive into Wellington. The stay was so much more a destination than a stop along the way. Jan and Dave Stewart have an incredible ranch that they are willing to share with travellers. David took us out with Wally, their australian shepard and we got to wtach him herd his flock of sheep, while David introduced to his land and his family, dairy and town. The Stewarts built the Estate with two guest rooms a little over ten years ago, they rival any 5 star hotel I have stayed in! Soft robes, jetted showers, a litttle frig filled with complimentary snacks. we opted for a home cooked meal from Jan...the best dinner of our trip..wine from her brother in laws' winery, perfect pink rack of lamb, home made dark chocolate ice cream...all served with crisp linen in front of a fire! After dinner, Dave set a fire outside for us so we could soak in the hot tub in front of the fire after dinner! The entire estate is beautiful and romantic. No wonder so many " New Zealanders" choose to get married at Hiwinui. Everyone should stay here on their way to Wellington...it's a lovely point to stop. The next day it is an easy drive through Greytown and the rest of the wine country to Wellington! We're planning our next trip to NZ around a stay at Hiwinui! (It's also a great place to run, lots of fun country roads.)
