Hotel Review

Wairepo House is a fabulous country estate in New Zealand’s famous Nelson region. The four suites are elegant and comfortable, with marble-tiled bathrooms and French doors that open out into the spectacular landscaped gardens. The grounds of the house are simply stunning, with two acres of woodland and native garden in which to wander. There is a fifth generation apple and pear orchard and a further two acres of bright pink peonies (seasonally harvested and exported to the US). Work up a sweat on the grass tennis court, exercise your mind with a game of giant chess in the garden, read by the pool - or just relax in the summer house or by a fountain. If you do manage to leave the place then the Abel Tasman, Nelson Lake and Kahurangi National Parks are nearby, and there are great fishing opportunities on the Motueka rivers. Take a trip to one of the 25 award winning boutique wineries nearby - this is one of New Zealand’s top wine regions after all. Boutique luxury hospitality at its best.
