OUR DELIGHTED GUESTS
AMAZING WEDDING EXPERIENCE
From the very beginning Peter was an absolute pleasure to deal with and very calming. The food was awesome and so was the venue. Great photo opportunities and lovely accommodation as well. Peter even served the bridal party a second meal at midnight which was life- saving! The staff were all awesome and nothing was too much trouble. Thank you so much!
PERFECT SPOT FOR A WEDDING...
We picked a perfect spot for our wedding ... a beautiful day ... Peter and his staff made us feel so welcome ... service out in the courtyard ... followed by photo-shots around The Lodge and gardens & decks ... then a lovely meal ... couldn't have been better ... thank you Peter also for being a witness and it was a pleasure to invite you to join us for our stunning meal too.

If you like the Country feel where you are surrounded by rolling hills and secluded from the hustle and bustle of the city, a place that can provide you with comfortable couches, leather suites, a massive stone fire place, elegant entrance way and a touch of history and class with a general feeling of warmth then you have found the ‘perfect venue’ in The Lodge. It is an absolutely beautiful setting to get married especially outside but equally inside if it rains too. The courtyard with the fountain in the spring time is quite unique – you may even be lucky to have a hen cross your path. The Lodge is close to some lovely locations for photos – i.e. Battle Hill or the Wildlife Reserve to name just a couple. The Lodge also has the perfect outlook over the Pauatahanui Inlet from the decks. This is topped off with great food which was first rate with guests asking for more (not that they weren’t given enough – there was plenty for all!) and the hosts, Peter and his Wife, were most accommodating and nothing was a hassle for them – very helpful indeed. Would highly recommend The Lodge as a venue.
IDYLLIC WEDDING VENUE
A massive thank you to Peter and his team for making our wedding day on Saturday so easy and special. The lead up to the wedding, as well as the big day all went so smoothly so thank you!! We have had so many comments on the food which was divine! Although it is only 20 minutes from the city it feels like your own little haven - the location is stunning!

GORGEOUS, GORGEOUS VENUE
We got married 15 Nov 2014 and had spent just over a year communicating with Peter about our big day. The venue itself is absolutely gorgeous! On the day the weather wasn't playing the game so Peter and Viv were amazing putting my mind at rest that they only needed 10 minutes to change the ceremony from outside to inside. Myself and my bridesmaid got ready at The Lodge and nothing was too much trouble to help us.....music, pen, paper (last minute speech lol), drinks. Viv and Peter were there the whole day and night and made everyone welcome, nothing was too much trouble. There were a few of us that stayed the night at The Lodge, The honeymoon suit was awesome...fantastic views. Our other guests complimented on their room too. All up our special day was everything we wanted, and we thank Peter and Viv for a wonderful day!
