My wife and I recently returned from a 5 week holiday starting out in New Zealand, into Australia, Indonesia, Singapore and ending in Hong Kong. We stayed in a variety of wonderful Hilton Hotels, stellar JW Marriotts, and the opulent Ritz in Hong Kong. We dined nightly at extraordinary restaurants. Without exaggeration, it was our four nights at The Manse...

We were lucky enough to spend 2 nights at The Manse. Our time with Gary and Dietske was truly one of the highlights of our time in New Zealand. This is a small two bedroom luxury inn that includes a working farm. Gary who is the owner and chef takes "farm to table" to a new level as most things...

The Manse had to be one of the highlights of our NZ trip. The property is spectacular, the owners Dietske and Gary are two of the most amazing B & B hosts you will find. Their home is beautiful and every attention to detail is felt the moment you enter the front door. Then the food!!! Gary is a Master...

We had the most fabulous time at the Manse with our hosts, Gary and Dietske. They were absolutely wonderful and paid extraordinary attention to every single detail. Our room was gorgeous with a view over the valley and a window seat to enjoy the sunrise. The meals were exquisite with amazing ingredients from their beautiful farm! Gary's golf expertise made...

One of the best ever travelling experiences we have ever had. We throughly enjoyed a 2 night stay with Gary and Dietske. Gary is an excellent chef and describes every dish he presents to you. Nothing is too much trouble and he has a great dry sense of humour. Wish we had him back at home. Dietske is a lovely...

This was a completely unique experience. From the moment of arrival until our departure, Dietske and Gary created a warm, memorable and comfortable stay in the delightful Hawkes Bay region. Their home is bright and welcoming. They are consummate hosts. Gary's cuisine is unparalleled. He delights in cooking, and a dinner at the Manse is a must. Breakfasts are magnificent,...

It's a beautiful place, not really suitable for kids. Couldn't wish for a better location nor a more beautifully appointed room and public rooms. It's beautifully kept and decorated. It would suit those who appreciate the finer wines and dining, I found it all a bit self important from a dining perspective. Don't misunderstand, the food was good/ great and...

It was booked for us by our travel agent. We were a little unsure when we pulled off the road, but the further we went up the drive and once we reached The Manse, we realised that it was a real gem. There are only 2 guest bedrooms, which is nice. Our room was very tasefully decorated, lovely comfortable beds,...

Lovely elevated location with excellent views, charming hosts and the most amazing food. Do not stay here and eat out. This was one of our best meals anywhere, ever ! Just two rooms, very comfortable and ever attention to detail. A real jem.

On our second stop on our honeymoon we didn't know what to expect; and then we arrived at The Manse, a true luxurious pocket surrounded by paradise. Driving up the cascading driveway, we were met by the wonderful Gary and Dietske our hosts for the next 4days. Warm, wonderful and kind, our two hosts showed us around and let us...
